Resident students of the four newly established halls of residence of the University of Ghana are agitated over “the university authority’s failure” to release their refundable fees paid during the 2011/2012 Academic Year.
With about a week more to the end of this academic year, both continuing and final year students are worried about authority’s refusal to inform residents when these monies will be disbursed.
In an exclusive interview with some resident students, the GH¢30 refundable fee which were paid to the University of Ghana Enterprise Limited (UGEL) account during the beginning of the academic year is yet to be refunded.
Students of the affected halls [Hilla Limann, Alexander Kwapong, Elizabeth Sey and Jean Nelson], they [students] claimed that though management has made students documented their various names and bank accounts for disbursement but currently to no avail.
An interrogation with the management of the halls [Broll Ghana] reveals that the refundable fees are to be paid by the university other than Broll Ghana.
Students are therefore worried about the fate of their money as the refundable fees of resident students of the Hilla Limann hall during the 2010/2011 Academic Year are yet to be paid.
Students are therefore seeking directives from the university authority over the distribution of the refundable fees.
