Really? ‘Students paying for utility is the way to go’ – Ablakwa

A former student leader and now Deputy Minister of Education in-charge of Tertiary, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has endorsed calls for tertiary students to bear the cost of utility, saying that is “the way to go”.

The Deputy Minister and incumbent MP for North Tongu however maintained that government has not taken any firm decision on the proposal for tertiary students to pay their own utility bills.
This comes on the back of concerns raised by tertiary students who say they will resist moves by government to make them pay.
The Minister of Power, Dr Kwabena Donkor, has waded into the debate saying students should be made to pay.
