A youth group calling itself the United Krobo Foundation has given the government a 14-day ultimatum to back down on the decision to move the Eastern region’s University of Environment and Sustainable Development from Somanya to Bunso.
According to the group, failure on the part of the government to heed their call will lead to turmoil.
“The Government must reverse its decision within a clear fourteen (14) days to bring peace”, it warned.
During the 2012 elections, the then President, John Mahama promised to construct a University in the Eastern region in line with his policy of establishing a university in each region.
He subsequently inaugurated a committee to develop a roadmap for its establishment at its two campuses – Somanya and Donkorkrom in Afram Plains.
But it seems plans are underway to move the Somanya Campus to Bunso, a move the youth group disapproves of.
The group had demonstrated through the principal streets of Odumase and Somanya to register their displeasure over what they claim is a subtle attempt by the government to site the main campus of the first Eastern region university at Bunso.
A statement issued by the group said government’s decision will among other things amount to “a calculated revolt against presidential and parliamentary directives issued on Act 898 on establishing a University of Environmental and Sustainable Development (UESD) and a conspiracy against Krobos and South Eastern Ghana.”
It, therefore, demands investigations into what it describes as “political sabotage.”
Below are the demands of the group
“The main UESD campus must be sited at Somanya and work commence vigorously at the site”, the statement concluded.
