Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) have protested a directive from management asking those who paid their fees late to defer their courses for the year.
Dressed in black and red, the students crowded the entrance of the school singing war songs. The students in an interview accused the management of being unfair to them asking them to a least give them a fore notice about the consequences of late payment of fees.
They also accused the school of being insensitive considering the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has had on people’s source of income.
“Students were unaware of the consequences of late payment of fees. So we went about our duties, doing our assignments, online tests and all that only for management to come out that [affected students should defer their course]. They must just change this decision that is what we are saying,” one student said.
