Old Vandals Association (OVA) condemns Commonwealth-Sarbah Hall clash, challenges removal of hall master and senior tutor

The leadership of the Old Vandals Association (OVA) has condemned the clash between residents of the Commonwealth and Sarbah Hall and also expressed disappointment with the management of the University of Ghana over the removal of a hall master and a senior tutor.

"We condemn in no uncertain terms the perpetrators and call for immediate and perpetual ceasefire. We understand that the matter is being investigated by the Ghana Police Service. We have full confidence in IGP Dr. George Akufo Dampare, his officers, men and women, that, as they have demonstrated in recent times, they will get to the bottom of this as well. We shall not rest until the perpetrators are caught and dealt with in accordance with the laws of the land".

The President of the Old Vandals Association, Isaac Nketia Sarpong, called on the University to rescind its decision on the removal of the senior tutor and the hall master and outlined some measures put in place to ensure peace between students of the Commonwealth Hall and the Mensah Sarbah Hall.

Aside from recommending the removal of the Hall Master and Senior Tutor, the University of Ghana Council recommended that Commonwealth Hall be surcharged with the cost of damage to property in the vicinity of Mensah Sarbah Hall.

A bust of John Mensah Sarbah, situated outside the Mensah Sarbah Hall, was stolen during the clash.

The SRC Union Building sign board and newly renovated SRC notice board were also destroyed.
