The Student Representative Council ( SRC ) of the University of Education (UEW), Winneba has cautioned final year students of the school who intend to jubilate after completion of their courses to do so in moderation.
The caution comes following the death of a final year student, Sani Abdul Majeed while he was jubilating after completing his four year course.
Sani Majeed passed on Thursday evening while receiving treatment at the Korle-Bu Teaching hospital in Accra.
The young man who finished his final paper on Tuesday,7th September, 2021 was last seen with friends exhibiting their skills in gymnastics.
Sources within the school told Atinkaonline that, the UEW Level 400 Physical Education student broke his neck while displaying acrobatics with colleagues after their last paper.
According to the source, the UEW student was rushed to the Winneba Trauma Hospital for medical treatment but was later transferred Korle-Bu Teaching hospital in Accra where he passed on.
Sources at Korlebu said Majeed’s fractured neck affected his spinal cord and that he needed immediate surgery.
In a statement, the SRC said,”The Council wishes to draw the attention of the Final Year students who are in the mood of celebrating the completion of their courses/programmes to do that with moderation and should not be carried away by their rejoice. The entire student fraternity will be keeping the deceased in their thoughts and holding him in their heart.”
It also stated that, “The Student Representative Council of the University of Education, Winneba is stunned by the news of the sudden departure of one of its colleagues by name: Sani Abdul Majeed, a level 400 (final year) student of the Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Sports (HTYPERS).”
The SRC also extended its heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to the deceased’s family on the untimely loss of their son.
“Though the Council has shown leadership at the time the deceased needed its help, as the saying goes, “Man proposes, God disposes”. The Council indeed believes that every soul shall taste death; though death in general is painful, it is the exit of a promising young person that pains the most! We pray that he, the deceased rest in peace in the bosom of Almighty God.”
