University Students Across Ghana To Demonstrate This Week Over UTAG Strike

A group of University students in Ghana named, Coalition of Concerned University Students (CoCUS) has threatened to stage a mega demonstration against the sitting government over its inability to address the ongoing strike action by the University Teachers.

The industrial action by UTAG has entered its forth week and no proper measures have been made to bring a resolution to the problem.

George Kofi Abuah on Citi News monitored by Honestynewsgh, stated that the group will petition the presidency and other stakeholders to intervene for a resolution.

“We have acquired all relevant requirements for the demonstration, we have approval from the Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service on our intended demonstration which will be held hopefully this week”.

“We already pleaded with the government to intervene. But we still haven’t heard from them. Does the government expect university students who have paid accommodation and school fees at exorbitant prices to sit idle all the while?” he questioned.

Public universities across the country are at risk of closing down. This is because the regulations guiding public universities indicate that where there are no teaching activities for 31 days after academic activities are resumed, the school must be closed down.
