Dear Mrs,


It is with much euphoria that we petition your noble outfit with the hope that our concerns will be addressed, and so that we can have better facilities in our lecture halls to promote effective teaching and learning.

A cursory look at our major lecture halls indicates that these facilities are not up to world class status, and it does not befit the status of the University of Ghana. These essential places are not conducive enough, and they come with little comfort.

Permit us to focus our attention on just two lecture halls to represent the other halls; the first is Jones Quarter Building (JQB), and New Block (NB). The conditions in there are precarious and they affect teaching delivery.

These lecture halls do not have blinds or curtains to prevent external source of light (sun) from entering the lecture hall. This makes it extremely difficult for us to see what is projected onto the board. It is interesting to note that, we are open to the elements; sun scotches us right in the lecture halls, and when the rains come, we are not spared also.

The audio sounds, or the public address systems are in most cases not in good condition. They cause voice breakages, and they malfunction in some circumstances, and the lecturer has to shout but that is not enough, we hardly hear because the halls are huge. In addition, it is pathetic to see the frustration that lecturers go through to show video documentaries, there are no mechanisms to support that, and lecturers resort to funny ways to show us documentaries. We do not hear, and we do not see it.

We are also putting it on record that the lighting systems in the lecture halls are poor. Most of the bulbs are not working. The fans are in bad conditions, with majority of them malfunctioning leaving in the lecture halls terrible warmth. Ventilation is very poor. We are of the opinion that the University has the capacity to even install air conditioners in the lecture halls. That is what world class universities have done, and we must also do same so that we can have some comfort for our students.

In conclusion, we believe strongly that Africa’s 7th Best University, and Best University in West Africa must and should as a matter of urgency put in the necessary speed into resolving such menial but highly important setback to our academic pursuits. We know that academics is dear to this noble university, and we are assured that these issues will be addressed in the shortest possible time.

Yours Sincerely,

Pascal Hayford Agbesi
