The Deputy Registrar of Operations, University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Mr. Alexander W. Essah, has admonished students of the University Hall to cultivate the culture of maintaining facilities at the hall to ensure the longevity of the properties of UEW.    

He explained that a weak maintenance culture has severe ramifications for the institution's economy, forcing it to fail the majority of the time. As a result, he urged them to learn to maintain the items provided by the University Hall to speed up their studies at UEW.

Mr. Essah made these pronouncements on behalf of the Registrar of UEW, Surv. Paul Osei-Barima Esq., at the official commissioning of a reading room for the Junior Common Room Council (JCRC) of the University Hall at the University Hall Block C, North Campus, on Friday, May 6, 2022.

The Deputy Registrar, Division of Operations, advised students to refrain from using the facility for non-academic activities and instead use it to better their academic pursuits.

"That’s not the place for you to go and just converse. If you have been provided with this learning facility, then we expect you to improve your grades. It should be reflected in your academic achievements; otherwise, the efforts of your executives would have been in vain," he stated.
