"NTU apologises for confusion over Chinese-language food, retail signboards
SINGAPORE: Nanyang Technological University (NTU) on Wednesday (Jun 28) apologised for the "confusion" and its "lack of clarity" after tenants of food stalls and retail outlets on the campus were reportedly asked to replace bilingual signboards with English-only signage.
The apology came a week after local Chinese media reported that businesses were told by university staff members to switch to English-only signage.
"There is no policy at NTU that prohibits the use of Chinese language on signboards at food stalls and retail outlets," NTU president Bertil Andersson said in a statement.
He acknowledged that many members of the public had expressed unhappiness on the issue over the past few days."
Lol! Helmed by a foreigner who should hv know the history of NTU, x- Nanyang University, a Chinese medium institution dismantled by Lee Kuan Yew in his fight against communism n Chinese chauvinism, n that removing Chinese language fr this university surely will raise a racket!
The promised "thorough investigation" of this unfortunate incident better be fast n the results out in maximum transparency!!
This is happening in a university that has recently being ranked top of the world!!
Sometimes u just wonder if ranking, a favourite sport of Sgp, can be trusted!!
