Authorities at the University of Ghana have reviewed the tolling system introduced in the school on Saturday, making it possible for students to access the University without paying road tolls.
Commercial drivers who were supposed to pay GHC400 for year due to the introduction will now pay GHC100.
According to the Press and Information Secretary of the Students Representative Council of the University, Mikdad Mohammed, the move “will shift the huge burden on innocent students.”
According to citifmonline, Mr. Mikdad also announced the University’s intentions of providing a shuttle system for students. “We have received very positive indication that in two weeks, we are going to meet the arrival of new shuttles which will begin operations at very vantage points,”Mr. Mikdad stated.
The authorities of the University of Ghana on Saturday started charging road tolls to vehicles making entry into the campus. The University said it must charge the tolls to pay for the loan to refurbish and reconstruct roads within the campus.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) of the school have protested the new charges and threatened to stage a demonstration over the refusal of the school authorities to exempt students from paying the toll.
They have also petitioned Parliament to intervene on their behalf.
