The Concerned Students Of Colleges Of Education In Ghana have sent an expressive message to the government and Principals.
In the message, the trainees indicated the ongoing strike by CETAG and CENTSAG is affecting them drastically.
They also gave the government and PRINCOF Sunday, 20th November 2022 to accomplish the needful, or else they will all leave to their various houses because they can not stay on campus for hunger to ‘kill’ them.
Adding that, when they leave, they will not return until the next academic year in January 2023.
The message reads;
We, the students of all the 46 colleges of education in Ghana here, write to inform you that, we are suffering in our various colleges as a result of the ongoing CETAG and CENTSAG strike, where the side of CETAG, all classrooms, and academic activities has been stopped then on the side of CENTSAG, which comprises of the Non-teaching staffs, has also stopped all their activities, including the cooks, who prepare our daily meals for us.
We want to inform the principals and the government that we are dying of hunger, so we are pleading with the government to do the need for these people to come back to work so that we can also survive.
We are giving up until the 20th of November, 2022 if we don’t hear any good news, we will all leave for our various houses, because we can’t stay here for hunger to kill us, and if we leave we are not coming back for the rest of the semester unless, in January where the next academic year and the next semester begins due to the increment of lorry fare because most of us leave far from where our school is, some of us even spend Gh¢500.00 on transportation alone before we get to campus.
