The University of Cape Coast (UCC) Students Representative Council (SRC) has been sued by HM Shuttle Services limited for alleged breach of contract.
HM Shuttle services in its writ sighted by citinewsroom.com said the UCC SRC breached the contract for services in the 2019/2020 academic year.
The firm wants the court to compel the school’s SRC to compensate it for the breach of contract and the “consequent losses it has suffered.”
HM Shuttle Services Ltd is seeking general damages, compensation for loss of profits and legal costs.
HM’s relationship with the UCC SRC begun in March 2019 after the SRC abrogated a similar contract it had with the Metro Mass Transit Limited in February 2018.
According to HM Shuttle Services Ltd, UCC SRC abrogated the deal with Metro Mass Transit “over poor service delivery.”
“The plaintiff says that it has been rendering the shuttle service to students of University of Cape Coast in the 2nd semester of the 2018/2019 academic year. The plaintiff says that prior to this 2019/2020 academic year, the defendants engaged the services of the Metro Mass Transit to run the shuttle services for the students of the University of Cape Coast. The plaintiff says that the defendants engaged the services of Metro Mass Transport without terminating the agreement it had with the defendants.”
“The plaintiff says that as part of the agreement with the defendants, it was to resume its shuttle business this academic year. The plaintiff says that by virtue of the agreement between the parties, the plaintiff acquired some more buses to add to their fleet and deployed six buses to the University of Cape Coast to run the shuttle services for the subsequent academic years,” the writ added.
The company complained that it acquired six additional buses to boost its fleet and is thus demanding for compensation for such inconvenience.
“The plaintiff says that unless compelled by this Honourable Court, the defendants will not compensate it for the breach of contract and the consequences losses it has suffered,” the writ added.
