Tertiary students on vacation in all the six public universities, could have their holidays extended following threats by the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) to strike.
UTAG has petitioned the Presidency to order the appropriate agencies to pay them their remaining 10 month's salary arrears; failure to comply will see them lay down their tools.
In an interview with the National Vice President of UTAG, Kakraba Bakubo, he noted that the students should not bother to show up when school re-opens, if the government does not meet their demands.
“They’ve not fulfilled the arrangement, we are reminding them that July is the end of the schedule. If they don’t pay, schools will not reopen. Even if they re-open, we will not respond to any call."
