Four former Junior Common Room (JCR) Executives from Commonwealth Hall have been suspended by the University of Ghana’s administration for violating the vice chancellor and the dean of student affairs.
The Registrar, in a press release, claimed that the executives held a meeting that served as a podium for the delivery and publication of false and defamatory statements against some senior officers of the University and damaged the reputation of the offices of the Vice-Chancellor and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor.
“On the 18th and 19th of August 2022, some former Junior Common Room (JCR) Executives of Commonwealth Hall, organized or allowed the organization of meetings of the Junior Common Room (JCR) of Commonwealth Hall. These meetings provided a platform for the delivery and publication of false, reckless and defamatory statements against Senior Officers of the university, which brought the Offices of the Vice-chancellor, the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Academic and Student Affairs) and the University as a whole into disrepute,” part of the statement read.
The Disciplinary Board for Junior Members of the University found that the executives’ acts breached university policies and suspended them for three academic years each after receiving a complaint from the offended students.
The statement said, “The Disciplinary Board further determined that their actions violated Statutes 42(1)(n) and (o) of the University of Ghana Regulations for Junior Members, 2017.”
