President of the National Association of Ghanaian students, Paa Kwesi Adu is of the considered view that education is becoming expensive for many tertiary students to afford.
He told Radio Ghana’s Agatha Asamoah that high school fees and accommodation challenges are becoming headaches for many.
Mr. Adu cited the University of Professional Studies where freshers are compelled to pay utility bills before they could complete the registration process.
He expressed worry that many of the traditional residential halls across the various universities get filled up while many more students are compelled to seek hostels which charge exorbitant fees and are placed a good distance from the universities making commuting to campus for lectures tiresome and risky.
He called for a holistic look at the situation by stakeholders before things get out of hand.
