University of Ghana SRC suspends intended 'tweaaaa demonstration'

Eric Edem AgbanaThe Student Representative Council of the University of Ghana has put on hold its intended ‘tweaaa demonstration’ which was slated for Tuesday, 11th February, 2014.

According to SRC President, Eric Edem Agbana, the suspension had become necessary because it had entered into negotiations with the government and other stakeholders.

Speaking on Radio Univers’ Campus Exclusive on Monday, Mr. Agbana stated that the SRC will hit the street with not less than three thousand demonstrators if the negotiations do not end in their favour.

“Negotiations are still on going. We have always said that demonstration is our last resort. If we jump unto the street Tomorrow 11th, honestly it means we have exhausted all our means, so we are putting the demonstration on hold. It is not cancelled. It is still a viable option, Mr. Agbana said.

“We are patiently waiting for to conclude negotiations, if we conclude negotiations and it does not go in our favour, expect not less than three thousands or four thousands students pouring out unto the street to register their displeasure,” he added.

The SRC last week announced it was embarking on a massive demonstration dubbed “Tweaaa demo” to protest against the introduction of road user charges on vehicles that ply University of Ghana roads.

Collection of road user charges from drivers started on February 1  at all four entry-points of the University amidst agitation and public outcry.
