USAG calls off planned demo

The University Students Association of Ghana (USAG), has called off its intended demonstration following the govern-ment’s decision not to bill students for utilities.

This is contained in statement issued by the association, jointly signed by   Osei Poku Derrick, president, and Nana Otu Darko, Press and International Relations Secretary and copied The Ghanaian Times.

“USAG wants to call on all SRCs and various coalitions formed, to call off their intended demonstration since the calls made by the mother union, USAG, has been upheld by the government,” it said.

The statement, however, urged students to conserve energy, adding, “If we are raising shoulders high and pointing fingers at the sitting government to seek equity, then we must equally appear with clean hands.

“The ceiling fans, light bulbs and laptops that are left glowing when leaving for lectures is one of the major causes that have plunged this country into many months of unfruitful darkness,” the statement said.

“Viable governance of successive governments will only gain monumental dominance, if we, as students, doubling as leaders of our generation, do our bit as individuals towards salvaging the energy failure of our motherland,” it added.
