School of Hygiene students protest over teachers sit-down strike


Two hundred and thirty-five (235) final year students of the Tamale School of Hygiene on Tuesday embarked on a peaceful demonstration within the school premises over the school authority’s failure to address their teachers concerns.

The students burnt used lorry tires while chanting, “Our exam is due, it is not our fault, pay our teachers,” among other things.

Teachers at the Tamale School of Hygiene have been on a sit down strike for the past six weeks now over unpaid marking allowance, invigilation, and research and field supervision.

The final year students say they have paid 5,225 Ghana cedis for four semesters totaling GH₵12, 27875 and cannot understand school authorities’ inability to pay the teachers what is due them.

Students Representative President, Malemoa Jerome told Zaa News the actions and inactions of the school authorities will negatively affect them in their final year exam scheduled in June.

When Zaa News contacted the principal of the school, Mr. Alfred D. Asibi, he said he has gone to Accra to find solution to the problem and would not comment further on the issue.
