An online poll conducted by Citi FM shows that about 72 percent of a cross section of Ghanaians are against the directive ordering tertiary students to pay their utility bills.
The poll,which was conducted on a social media platform , Twitter, had 218 total votes with only 28 percent of the total votes supporting the directive and 72 percent opposing it.
The Power Minister, Dr. Kwabena Donkor earlier announced that students in tertiary institution will be paying for their utility bills effective next year but student leaders across the country say they will resist moves to enforce the directive.
Despite the stiff opposition from the students, the Deputy Minister in charge of Tertiary Education Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa supports the Power Minister’s call.He however says government is yet to take a firm decision on the proposal.
