The University Teachers Association of Ghana ( UTAG) strikes continues this week.The General Secretary of the University Teachers Association of Ghana, (UTAG) Professor Ransford Gyampo has strongly to the public to disregard reports that UTAG has suspended its strike action over poor conditions of service.
A lot of reports circulating on the social media is indicating that UTAG has called off the strike. Mr. Ransford Gyampo upon seeing such report has come out strongly to voice out that the information circulating is a false alarm. He further explain that unless the needs of the Teachers are being met, they are not going back to their various lecture halls to teach.
In accordance with the statement made by The General Secretary of UTAG, the National Union of Ghana Students have beseech UTAG to let them go home for a break until the strike is called off.
Mr Julius Kwame Anthony, who is the General Secretary of National Union of Ghana Students voiced out in an interview with the daily graphic that, " Students have been greatly affected by the strike action as they cannot write their examinations, as well as pursue further studies outside since they would need their transcripts to do so"
At the moment, the probability of students going home is unlikely but if the need arise for them to go home, they will.
