Professor Ransford Gyamfo, Secretary to the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), LEGON Chapter has thrown a jab at TV 3 for saying UTAG has called off it’s strike.
Prof. Gyampo, in a Facebook post stated that, UTAG never called of it’s strike as being indicated by the Media General platform.
“Dear TV3, I want to believe u made a sincere mistake. There is difference between CETAG and UTAG. CETAG has called off it’s strike. UTAG remains on strike because up till now, there’s been no offer made by the Government. All TAG no be TAG” he stated.
This came after the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) suspended it’s indefinite strike after observing the payment of their 2017-2022 Condition of Service arrears in the January 2022 validation.
TV 3, in an attempt to broadcast the suspension made by CETAG, generalized it, hence mistaking UTAG for CETAG.
UTAG had been on strike over what they referred to as poor Condition of Service and calling on the government to put measures in place to resolve the matter or they remain on strike indefinitely.
University students across the country have expressed their views, stating that, the government should hasten to act for academic activities in the University to commence.
