The SRC of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), have issued a threat to close down a fuel station that has been sited close to the school.
“We the Students’ Representative Council of the UPSA, are unequivocally protesting against the siting and operation of the fuel station in question, which is too close to the University community,” a statement by the SRC said.
“Regrettably, the EPA has still not responded to the school’s request [why the school was exempted from stakeholder consultations with residents in the area]. We are sending this strong signal today that if measures are not taken to close down the fuel station, the leadership will organize the students to picket at the EPA, NPA and the La-Nkwantanan Madina Municipality. We will also embark on several demonstrations to register our protests until the various authorities at the EPA and NPA take the necessary action to save our lives. We may be forced to defend ourselves by closing down the fuel station on our own” Sydney Quartey the SRC President warned.
