Students of the Navrongo campus of the University for Development Studies, have boycotted lectures in protest against the Northern Electricity Company (NEDCO).

They are unhappy with NEDCO for disconnecting power to the university campus.

According to reports, students blocked lecturers from entering lecture halls with the excuse that they were unable to hear or see what they were teaching because the electric-powered public address system and the projectors were not working.

They massed up on campus in Bamahu, a Wa suburb where the campus is situated, calling on officials to settle their debt to the distributor of electricity to reconnect them to promote teaching and learning.

Despite several letters written to the organization by the Public Utility Regularity Commission (PURC), the UDS Wa Campus owes NEDCO a total of GH3 million to be consumed since 2013.

The business owed power supply over GH3.4 million debt to the University for Development Studies (UDS) Navrongo campus in an associated development.

The energy distributor’s action arrives just 24 hours after a 5.94 percent rise in electricity tariffs.
