Mr. Kofi Asare who is the Executive Director for African Education Watch has dropped a bombshell on the meager pay of University Lecturers in Ghana.

University lecturers across the country are currently on strike after many years of demanding for better conditions of service.

Speaking on the issue, Mr. Kofi Asare revealed that University Lecturers in the country receives 5,000 or less as monthly salary at entry level into the job despite attending university for ten years to be able to attain the qualification to be able to lecture in the country’s universities.

In a post, Mr. Kofi Asare said “After spending 10 years in university from L 100 to PhD, a lecturer earns GH 5,000 or less a month at entry level, equivalent to 18% of the salary of a Deputy Minister and 5% of the GRA Boss’ salary. They have been negotiating with GOG since 2012 but to no avail.


They want to be restored to an entry level salary of about GH 12,000. Thats the simple summary.

Should they call off the strike?”
