The University of Ghana has given up the fight on withholding the certificates of seven of its students, The Post can confirm.
The students, all members of Commonwealth Hall were accused by the school of organizing a Route Match for members of the hall.
Although they denied any involvement in the accusation, the authorities of the school expelled them from the hall and later withheld their certificates.
One of the accused students, Collins Owusu-Sekyere took the school to court early this year as he felt the school was not fair in its decision. Last week, an Accra High Court ruled in favour of Owusu-Sekyere who according to the court is to be given ¢3, 000 for the time being, his certificate and transcripts while the court decides on the final damages.
The Post is reliably informed that four other students were supposed to get their certificates in 2016 though have not sued the school will now be given their certificate as their names have been added to this year’s graduating list.
Two other students who were part of the 2017 year group also had their certificates withheld as they were also accused of being part of the organizers of the Route Match. They also will now be given their certificates and have access to their transcripts.
It is not clear if the school wants to avoid another lawsuit after losing to Collins Owusu-Sekyere or it is no longer interested in withholding the certificates of innocent students.
