Statement: Blame POTAG strike on government's inefficiencies - NUGS
The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) the
mother union of all students in the country is
growing highly uncomfortable with the closure of
the Kumasi Polytechnic as a result of POTAG
members still holding forte to their strike.
The Union has not failed to point out the
ramifications of the POTAG strike on the student
especially the final year students and the nation
The closure of the Kumasi Polytechnic is worrying
since chances are the other nine (9) Polytechnics
would also witness a shut down in the coming days
as a result of the protracted POTAG strike.
The final year students who are supposed to have
their long essays supervised are getting
demoralize due to the prevailing circumstances.
As a Union, we believe some persons and
institutions must be blamed for the current
situation as far as the POTAG strike is concerned.
The Professor Mills Government, Ministry of
Education (MOE), Fair Wages and Salaries
Commission (FWSC), Controller and Accountant
General’s Department and the Ministry of Finance
must all be blamed for the current status quo.
We cannot run our educational system the way it’s
being run and expect to win the race of
transmuting education into development. We can do
better and the Professor Mills Government must do
The Union calls on the Professor Mills'
Government, Ministry of Education (MOE), Ministry
of Finance and Economic Planning and the Fair
Wages and Salaries Commission (FWSC) to address
the current circumstances with some immediacy
before things get off hand.
