The University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) is one of the nouvelle universities set up within Ghana to aid with access to tertiary education for the growing youthful population of the country Ghana. It was established in the year 2011 but started its operations in September, 2012 with the admission of a first batch of one hundred and fifty-four students.
UHAS has made several strides in its short time of existence gaining; prominence in the field of health and winning some notable nationwide competitions in the field. The state of the University’s roads is however an eyesore that mars its many laurels it has achieved. The agitation of the student populace is with the delays in the construction of the road network around the campus. This comes after the President of the Republic cut sod for the construction of the Soko bypass and UHAS internal roads on September 2, 2020.
These roads have still not been constructed with most students blaming it on the contractor who is yet to commence any substantive work on the roads. Students have been seen on numerous occasions helping push tricycles (popularly known as Pragya) through the muddy roads and also other Metro Mass Transport buses all plying these deplorable roads. It is with this sense of urgency that some students of the University have appealed to the public through a hashtag on some social media platforms to mount pressure on responsible authorities.
Below are some of the photos making rounds on social media:
