University of Ghana Suspends Exams Indefinitely Following UTAG strike

University of Ghana has reportedly suspended its end of semester examinations following UTAG’s strike.

The management of the University took the decision at a meeting held on Friday as lecturers across the country have declared a strike.

The exams has been put on hold—perhaps till the teachers resume teaching.

UTAG members declared strike on Monday because the government has refused to solve their poor condition of service.

According to UTAG president Professor Charles Marfo, the government must honour their promise of entry level lecturers $2000 if they want them back inside the lecture rooms.

“…until our demands are considered and met in-toto, UTAG would have no other option than to embark on industrial action by withdrawing teaching, which includes the conduct of examinations, marking of examination scripts, and other related matters, starting from Monday, August 2, 2021, until further notice,” National UTAG President, Professor Charles Marfo.
