UCC had earlier justified its decision for suspending 22 students over the clashes between Atlantic (ATL) and Oguaa halls, saying the student leaders were “negligent”..
In a statement signed by the UCC acting Director, Maj. Kofi Baah-Bentwum (Rtd) said management of the school took the decision because the affected students were negligent in their duties.
“The other twenty-one (21) students made up of JCRC executives and the Planning Committee showed disregard to University Authorities and were negligent in their duties, thus leading to non-compliance with directives from the Dean of Students.
