UEW has experienced series of protests by various groups including students against the school’s Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni over the dismissal of some lecturers in the school.
The school was subsequently closed indefinitely by the Central Regional Security Council to avoid further disorder.
Also, De Eye group, an alleged ‘Militia’ group per an expose from Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure is suing the journalist and demanding GH10 million for damages over the ‘militia’ tag attached to their organization. They insist they are engaged in recruitment for the unemployed youth nationwide and have no involvement whatsoever in any military activities.
Of course, the public outrage by Ghanaians from all angles on the new Public Distribution Services (PDS) over the massive power outages that affected some parts of the country less than a month after they took over from the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will also feature on today’s show.
Some homes experienced hours of black-out Tuesday March 12, 2019 and subsequent days sparking outrage and backlash from the public. Government, PDS and GridCo have since attributed the incident on some technical challenges owing to some construction works at the Pokuase Interchange in Accra.
