The Management of Ho Technical University (HTU) has advised the general public to disregard false publication in the media domain that hook up trend has lead to HIV outbreak in the school.
According to a press release, the Ho-based University has said that the University Health Service as well as the Municipal and Regional Health Directorates of the Ghana Health Service have no such information on HTU as published. Hence, the general public is urged to disregard the publication as it is baseless and false.
The public is further advised to desist from sharing the false publication as it has the potential of damaging the hard won image and reputation of the institution. Management, as a matter of cleansing the image of the University, intends instituting legal actions against individuals sharing the false publication.
It would be recalled that there was a false publication on ajnewsonline.com which had alleged the subject under contention. Since then, social media had given it prominence.
