We’ll End The Conflict Between Commonwealth Hall and Mensah Sarbah Hall – Dean of Students and SRC President Commits

By | May 31, 2017

The Dean of Students Affairs Professor Francis Nunoo together with the newly sworn in President of the SRC Mr. Daniel Otting Awuah have both reiterated their commitments towards finding a lasting solution to ensuing conflict between the two Halls of residence in the University of Ghana.

The two were speaking at the SRC Excellence Awards and Handing Over Ceremony last week at the Great Hall with the Dean of Students revealing that the issue had been discussed extensively at convocation.

Over the past few years, the conflict between the two halls have degenerated into very chaotic situations leading to bloodshed in some instances and the burning of cars and vandalizing of other school properties.

It is unclear what had led to the conflict but substantive batches of students who are admitted into these two halls of residence have joined in the conflict, sometimes, without even knowing the genesis of the conflict.

Both halls have been made to pay fines in many instances.
