Academic activities have halted at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Basic School as a strike by the Senior Staff Association of Public Universities continues.
Checks by Citi News at the premises of the KNUST basic school show empty classrooms with no activity ongoing.
The leadership of the KNUST-branch of the Senior Staff Association has directed its members to leave duty posts except for essential services.
Some parents who spoke to Citi News about the development said the situation is worrying.
“This is a big inconvenience to all of us. They said, they announced it last night on our WhatsApp platform, but honestly, I didn’t see it. We live far from campus”, one parent said.
Another retorted that “the situation is very worrying. We have been home for more than 10 months now and school reopens for one week, and then we have to go back home again. I think those who have embarked on the strike have not done anything bad because what they are asking for is very legitimate.”
Meanwhile, KNUST branch Chairman of the Senior Staff Association, George Ansong says members will be forced to withdraw all services if the Government fails to address their concerns.
