So what causes the irrational rise of hostel prices in KNUST.
It makes it difficult for us perchers to convince our perchees to perch them looking at how much they’ve paid. Dear hostel owners please consider our friends, our lives also matter.#KnustHostelPricesMustFall

After all these monies are paid,students suffer bully at the hands of security men and also there are less chairs for more students at THE PETROLEUM BUILDING. We came to learn and not to be taken advantage of.@elly_serwaaa @Serwaa_Amihere @thenanaaba #KNUSTHOSTELPRICESMUSTFALL https://t.co/njCCJs3uMc

It’s about the government and all high profiles help us with this issue. Personally, I’ve tried talking to some authorities but to no avail.
Its also sad how these hostels owners and their porters/care takers call themselves Christians or Muslims #KnustHostelPricesMustFall
