It became worrying, as a matter to demand Justice for students took a sharp partisan turn with political actors seeking to make gains out of the situation.
NUGS is by this statement also calling on all stakeholders to be resolute in the protection of academic freedom and the discussion of academic issues beyond partisan lines.
Finally, we wish to send a word of caution to management that, the intervention of Otumfour does not indicate a support for management but the love of His Highness for progress and to end the impasse. Therefore, management must be willing to engage students in bringing the matter to a peaceful conclusion
Permit us to once again State our readiness as a student body to engage with management in resolving all matters to expedite the reopening of the institution.
Long live student Activism

Press and Information Secretary
