“We in CoCUS believe that student activism has been pivotal in Ghana’s political and democratic history.”“Given that Ghana’s democratisation process since 1992 has not been static, some remarkable strides have been made in improving the nation’s democratic quality through student activism.”
As the lecturers’ strike enters its fourth week, a shutdown of public universities may still be considered.
Lecturers are pressing for better working conditions, requesting salaries of more than GHC 1200 for entry-level positions.
