A group calling itself the Concerned Students of the University of Ghana has threatened to embark on a demonstration over the university’s decision to roll out a modular system for the 2020/2021 academic year.
The Group is opposing the decision and wants the management of the university to cancel the plan.
They are also criticizing their student leaders for doing little to get university authorities to rescind the decision.
The group has called on other students to join in the protest scheduled for Friday, January 8, 2021.
Some persons believed to be students of the University have since Wednesday taken to social media to express their disagreement with the modular system.
They are of the view the allocated 6 weeks for teaching and learning activities for a semester is not enough.
So they really think all students can learn and pass all courses in 6 weeks which usually was 13 – 14 weeks??!!…. Aaaah Legon #legondemonstration

I’m highly disappointed management will consider double track to a whole premiere university.. The president of Ghana knowing very well the double track will cripple our educational system is expanding infrastructure to deal with double track… #legondemonstration

They intentionally bring last years fees which in the actual sense was for 24 weeks of tuition and they want us to pay same amount for 12 weeks of tuition . Im really disappointed in the SRC and the whole legon management #legondemonstration
