The Technical University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (TUTAG) has viciously slammed government.
The group are accusing government of not taking their concerns seriously despite their strike.
Chairman of the Accra Technical University branch of TUTAG, Dr. Ibrahim Zubairu in an interview said government’s posture is disrespectful to both students and teachers.
TUTAG went on strike on October 7 after emoluments due them were not released despite a directive from the Ministry of Finance to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department with effect from 1st August 2019.
They were joined by the Technical Universities Administrators Association of Ghana (TUAAG), who are also demanding full benefits of migration onto the public universities’ salary structure.
After two weeks, Dr. Zubairu said he was still hearing excuses that clearance had not been given.
“They promised us last week Friday…If they really respect students and we the lecturers and our students’ parents, they would have responded and done it long ago but because they don’t respect anybody but themselves alone, that is why they are dragging.”
