Mr Isaac Kodobisah, Ho Municipal Chief Executive, has cautioned students of the Evangelical Presbyterian University College (EPUC) to celebrate their week-long Student Representative Council (SRC) Week in moderation.

He was speaking at the launch of the Week on Thursday under the theme: “The delivery of quality education: The role of the Government as a stakeholder.”

Mr Kodobisah reminded the students that such student activities were no license for excesses because they would be answerable to the law for anything they did on such occasions.

He was speaking in reference to alleged molestation of female students by some male students of the Ho Polytechnic during the celebration of their SRC Week recently.

Mr Kodobisah said the Government was committed to providing the requisite resources to facilitate quality education at all levels of education in the country.

He said the donation of a 65-seater bus to the College recently attested to the Government’s commitment to support all universities whether private or public.

Mr Walter Blege, President of the EPUC reminded the students that the University’s authorities demanded the highest standard of discipline from them as they celebrate the SRC Week.

He said the authorities would not compromise on the University’s core values of discipline, decorum, moderation and morality.

Mr Blege said it would not hesitate to refuse permission for such activities in future should the students abuse the privilege extended to them to celebrate the Week.

In a speech read on his behalf, Mr Gabriel Kploanyi, Volta Regional Director of Education, asked government to support the National Accreditation Board to carry out its statutory functions effectively to ensure that the country’s tertiary institutions met the high standards required of them.

He urged government to consider extending the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFUND) support to the private universities because they also needed the support to produce quality graduates.
