The Deputy Ranking Member of the Parliamentary Committee on Education and Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South Constituency in Upper East Region, Dr. Clement Apaak, says the decision by the University of Ghana management to remove Commonwealth Hall Master and Senior Tutor following the violence clash were harsh
According to the Builsa South lawmaker, an alumnus of the Commonwealth Hall, the reaction to the violent clash should have been “fair and dispassionate.”
“We are a bit more worried too because we have noticed the rather extreme action that the university has initiated, suspending both the Hall Master and Senior Tutor” he said
Speaking in an interview, the Deputy Ranking Member of Parliament Committee on Education stated emphatically that he does not understand why the management of the University should choose to penalise only the Hall Master and Senior Tutor of the Commonwealth Hall when it was not only students from Commonwealth Hall who participated in the violent clash.
The only crime of the Hall Master and Senior Tutor, according to Mr Apaak was denying that any of their students were engaged in the clash.
The MP for Builsa South believes that a broader picture of the situation, backed with an investigation would be required.
