UPSA IN GRIEF
Thu, 12 Nov 2015.
It is with grief and heavy heart with which the SRC sends this communique. The entire University is in a state of shock with regards to the death of Jennifer Attieku a level 300 Banking and Finance student.
As leaders we will like to send condolence to the bereaved family and the entire University for the unfortunate incident even though we would not like to go into the incident.
However, efforts are being made to put the issue under control.
Therefore students are advised to be extra candid and circumspect enough as to the matters because some media houses and blocs will not hesitate to feed on any vague and less factual information left ajar. Though in grief, let us all maintain the level of professionalism to avoid tarnishing the well kept image of the University.
All efforts are being put in place to ensure that students are furnished with the facts of this sad incident.
We shall at the rightful time give update on the issue.
May her soul rest in peace.
