If you have seen the hashtag #SaveTheDiasporaHallsNow and you don’t know what it means, here is all the tea for you:
The four residential halls in the University of Ghana; Elizabeth Sey Hall, Alexander Kwapong Hall, Hilla Limann Hall and Jean Nelson Hall, may have to pay 2,500 Ghana Cedis as residential fees for the next academic semester.
This is because the University must service a ¢43m loan facility contracted in 2008 for the construction of these halls.
The loan which was released in three tranches has grown to ¢528m due to interests and other charges which have accrued over the past 10 years.
However, the students, led by the SRC President, Sylvester Amoako are ready to demonstrate against this.
