Your Finance Minister Is Treating Us Like Rags, Intervene - Prof. Gyampo To Prez.

Earlier in August this year, the University Teachers' Association of Ghana (UTAG) suspended all teaching and learning activities across all public university campusesin Ghana to demand for a better conditions of service from the government. After the legal battle that ensued between the National Labour Commission, the association, UTAG decided to suspend the strike and revisit the negotiation table. The one-month ultimatum for the negotiation is about to elapse but nothing concrete has come out of the meetings.

The actions of the Finance Minister in the negotiation process does not sit well with Professor Ransford Gyampo and has thus called on the presidency to intervene in the matter. Professor Gyampo in an open letter to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, stated that the Finance Minister, Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta does not attend meetings by himself but rather delegates someone to represent him [Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta]. He continued stating that Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta is treating UTAG as rags and their issue to be a trivial one.

He went on further to state that no one can contain the anger of the University teachers should they be allowed to strike again after the expiration of the one-month negotiation period. He thus called on the president to take up this matter and treat it with the urgency it deserves.
