The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the University for Development Studies, Navrongo Campus has given management of the school and government a three-day ultimatum to restore light on the campus following the disconnection of the school from the national grid by the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCO).

NEDCO on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, disconnected the institution from the national grid over non-payment of electricity bills since 2012.

This situation according to the SRC is negatively affecting academic work hence their demand.

In a communique issued by UDS Navrongo campus SRC president, Otivi Raymond and cited by Citi News, the student body has threatened to boycott academic activities to embark on a massive demonstration if the issue is not resolved within the stipulated period.

“We (UDS) are not the only institution owned by the government in Navrongo but other institutions have shown a level of commitment in paying their arrears unlike UDS Navrongo campus and hence the reason for the disconnection”.

“We are by this communique giving both the government of Ghana and the management of UDS a three-day ultimatum to resolve this issue for light to be restored on campus. Failure to do so, we will abandon all academic activities and go on a massive demonstration,” the SRC said in the communique.

Meanwhile, efforts to get a reaction from management of the school has proven futile.
