The coalition of concerned tertiary students will soon issue a petition to the minister for education, Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh over growing concerns about the E-learning platforms introduced by most universities in Ghana.
The petition will seek to note the negative realities that have exposed students to the dilemma of sound academic minds amidst the scare of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The association which consists of students from various institutions like KNUST, UMAT, UG, UEW, UDS, and UCC amongst others argue that the platform does not really favor Hungry students and also accessing the platform is complex which is also associated with slow leaning.
The concerned tertiary students believe in Academic freedom as they plan to meet the minister.
Below is their statement
As CONCERNED students we remain resolute in our quest of ensuring academic freedom and liberty in this trying times.
We urge each and everyone here to support the vision as we petition the Minister for Education to halt academic activities in this trying times due to the instability in the minds of students to focus on academics .

Academic freedom now!!!
We seek the audience of discerning students to join us as we petition the Minister of Education and all major stakeholders in Education since the decision of the Ministry through the University Management to enroll students on Virtual(Electronic) Learning System is not going down well with most students due to varying cogent reasons.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
