The Junior Common Room (JCR) of Commonwealth Hall popularly christened as ‘VANDALS’, an all-male Hall of resident in the University of Ghana have debunked a statement suggesting that the Hall would hold a press conference on Thursday, April 5, 2018 to condemn the deal between the Government of Ghana and the USA to set up a “US Military Base” in the country.

President of Common Hall, Prosper Boahen issued a statement on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 to inform members of the hall about intended action by leaders of the hall to collaborate with African Youth Improvement Foundation and Economic Fighters League to address the media to register their displeasure about the Ghana-US Military Agreement.

Students of commonwealth hall are known as VANDALS, an acronym for VIVACIOUS, AFFABLE, NEIGHBORLY, DEVOTED, ALTRIUSTIC and LOYAL.

They address each other as V-MATES and the popular response is SHARP.  It is the only male hall on campus. It is also the only hall that upholds customs and traditions.

VANDALS are said to be arguably the voices of the entire student body. They pride themselves with leadership qualities and unity, no wonder OLD VANDALS are always proud of the hall. You dare not go to the romantic vandal city in RED if you are a girl.
