We’ll continue to engage UTAG on how best we can get them back – Education Minister
Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has reiterated that further engagements will be held with the leadership of the University Teachers’ Association of Ghana (UTAG) to address their concerns.
He described the ongoing strike by UTAG as unfortunate and assured that all relevant channels would be used to reach an amicable solution.
Answering questions at a press briefing on Sunday, January 30, Dr Adutwum said, “as we did the last time [when UTAG embarked on strike], so it will happen this time around to make sure that we can bring a resolution to this problem.”
“We know that, unfortunately, university lecturers are on strike, but we’d continue to engage them as to how best we can get them back. As a Minister for Education, I’ve said that I am the chief advocate for teachers and professors.
“When we find ourselves in this space, I do everything possible, formally and informally, front door and back door to make sure that we come to some resolution,” he said.
