Twenty students of the University of Ghana, Legon have been sanctioned by the University authorities for various offenses. A statement released by the University’s Registrar, Joseph Budu, said some of the students have been dismissed while others are to be suspended.
The offenses, committed between 2006 and 2010, includes ‘ponding’ of students with water, excessive noise making, forging of cheques, assault and destruction of university properties.
The University authorities say these offenses are against the regulations of the institution. The Registrar, Mr. Budu told Citi News, the action by the university’s Disciplinary Committee shows how committed the University is to maintaining discipline among students.
He added that “the sanctions included informing the public about it. Its been in arrears for a while and we just cleared some of the arrears. It just goes to show that we would sanction any student who breaches our laws”
Mr. Budu indicated that thorough investigations are underway to punish students who took part in the manhandling of a suspected female thief at the Mensah Sarbah Hall.
