University of Ghana Students Petition Parliament over School Fees

Some students of the University of Ghana have submitted a petition to the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye to scrutinize the fees the University has charged for the 2017/2018 academic year.


In their petition, which was also copied to the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education, the students claimed that the University of Ghana authorities increase fees arbitrarily every new academic year, a situation which they say compounds the hardship they have been enduring.


When receiving the petition on behalf of the Speaker, Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, who is also the chairman of the Subsidiary Legislation Committee Mahama Ayariga asked public universities to comply with the law by submitting their proposed fees to Parliament for ratification before going on to bill students.


Fees at the University of Ghana for the 2017/2018 academic year have seen an average of 13% increase over the 2016/2017 fees schedule.
