The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof. Ernest Aryeetey last Friday, 21st February, 2014 in a media interaction said the University will open its Okponglo entrance to the general public without restriction but will restrict access through other entrance of the University by granting entry to only motorists with special permission.
Five days afterwards, 233 Live News can confirm that all gates leading to the University of Ghana campus are open to the general public, an indication the Vice Chancellor’s statement had not taken effect.
We have however intercepted a document from University management that states the new directives concerning the use of University of Ghana roads as briefly outlined by the Vice Chancellor will be fully operational from Saturday 15th March 2014 at 5am.
Meanwhile the University of Ghana has said that is committed to improving and protecting its facilities and physical assets as part of a larger programme to enhance the quality of its products.
An average of about 16,000 vehicles ply University of Ghana roads each day.
