Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for South Tongu has urged students of The Ghana Institute of Journalism who are affected by management’s decision to petition Parliament for redress.

He encouraged affected students to put together a petition and presented it to the house and the “current Parliament and the new Speaker are committed to deal with matters of public interest”,

As done in the case of petitions from Dr. Kwabena Duffour and Kofi Amoaneng, through MP for Bawku, “we the Minority wants to make the eight Parliament a participatory one, so the public can count on us”.

Mr. Ablakwa at the news conference in Parliament described the decisions of the school authorities as “draconian” which must not be tolerated under “this economic recession”.

On Wednesday 25th March 2021, some students of The Institute pinched camp at the main entrance of the school for several hours demanding reversal of decision by the authority to refer students who did late payment.

Management of the Ghana Institute of Journalist (GIJ) has directed students who failed to meet the deadline for registration and payment of fees to defer their courses.

Authorities in a statement said it decided at a meeting on March 22 “that students who paid their fees after the registration deadline should defer their Program.”

Adding that “all affected students are to take note of this directive and act accordingly.”

But the affected student never took the decision kindly, hence the ongoing public disturbances on the streets of State House, near Parliament house of Ghana.
