University Lecturers On Strike In Ghana by Lifestone(m): 11:53pm On Feb 20
We have said it over and over again that Ghana is not in any way better than Nigeria. UTAG, the equivalent of ASUU is currently on Strike running to over five weeks. Who will save Africa?

The ongoing lecturers' strike has entered its fifth week and threatens to shut down public universities. As a result, thousands of local and international students have been left stranded.
Public universities in Ghana are on the verge of a shutdown in the coming weeks unless lecturers currently on strike for over four weeks return to work.

The lecturers, who are part of the national umbrella body called the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), downed their chalks on January 10, 2022, over poor working conditions.

The lecturers' union said the government had refused to implement a pay policy that pegs their basic salary and market premium at $2,084 (€1,824). A market premium payment is a salary bonus for a specific group of workers whose posts have been identified as "hard to fill."

This payment aims to prevent workers like university lecturers from abandoning their jobs for other sectors or even traveling abroad to teach elsewhere
