The writ, which was filed on Monday, March 11, by their solicitor, Mr. Kweku Y. Paintsil, Esq., of Paintsil, Paintsil and Co. is praying the court to restrain the authorities of the University of Ghana from organising the congregation.
The students are also seeking a declaration by the court that the Academic Board (AB) of the University of Ghana
is in breach of its duty under section 39.2 of the Admission Requirements and Regulations for Graduate Studies in that it failed without any justifiable cause to approve their final results and thereby deprived them of the right of being conferred with their post-graduate degrees at the impending congregation of the university.
They further prayed for an order requiring the Academic Board of the University of Ghana
to meet to approve their results before March 16, so they can be conferred with their post-graduate degrees at the impending congregation.
Again, plaintiffs want an injunction ordering or directing the University of Ghana
or its Registrar to extend the time within which they shall apply for registration for the impending congregation of the university.
