The youth of Apewosika-Kokoado in the Cape Coast Metropolis have threatened to demonstrate against authorities at the University of Cape Coast if nothing is done to improve their wellbeing in the area.
The community which is one of the villages near the university complains of neglect by the university, despite their magnanimity in offering part of the land on which the university is built aside providing accommodation for non-residential students.
Speaking at a press conference in the area, the spokesperson for the group, Moses Ofori accused the University of putting the lives of residents in the area at risk through their poor waste management system.
He added that despite the community’s magnanimity in giving the university the land on which it resides, authorities have failed to reciprocate by giving the community a quota in terms of student intake to support students from the community.
According to him, what makes their situation worse is the fact that the university students abuse their girls sexually without taking care of the kids.
He therefore called on authorities at the university to step in to address their challenges as they would not sit aloof anymore for the university to destroy lives in the community per their actions and in actions.
The community, he stressed will also boycott the 2016 elections if government does not also step in to provide them with social amenities, especially the construction of their road as they only see contractors on their road during elections time with the contractors packing out after the polls.
