The University of Ghana, Legon has brought down the Mahatma Ghandi statue on campus. A number of stakeholders of the university pushed for the removal of the statue because of what they said was Mahatma’s “racist identity”.

In 2016,an online petition was launched and it received public support with over 2000 signatures.

Earlier today December 12, 2018 the security of the school was sighted pulling down the statue right behind the Balme Library.
