Professor Ransford Gyampo, a Senior Political Science lecturer at the University of Ghana has been “scammed” by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
This comes after the vibrant and outspoken Professor took to social media to shower a lot of praises on Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Dr Yaw Adutwum for allegedly playing a vital role in government’s efforts to convince UTAG to suspend their 3 weeks strike, and to most importantly put in place the necessary measures to improve the condition of lecturers across the country.
“Thankfully level headed leaders like the Vice President and the Minister of Education were humane enough in empathizing with our poor conditions of service and demonstrated palpable commitment towards bringing a finality to the impasse,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
Barely a month after this praise, Prof Gyampo is back screaming on social media over how the Akufo Addo/Bawumia government sweet-talked UTAG into suspending it’s strike only to adopt a lukewarm attitude.
Apparently, after Dr Bawumia pretended to shed crocodile tears to UTAG over their plight to hoodwink them into believing he cared about them and was going to do everything possible for their demands to be met within a month, the Vice President then went into hibernation.
Neither him nor his government showed commitment to seeing to it the agreement reached before the strike was suspended was met.
After one month of doing nothing about the demands of UTAG, Prof Gyampo is once again here making a series of posts complaining about the bad manner in which the Finance Minister and the officials of government are treating UTAG.
According to Prof, the Minister for Finance, Hon. Ken Ofori-Atta is currently treating UTAG and its members like a rag.
Earlier today, Prof took to Facebook to once again lament on the bad way in which government is treating UTAG.
“There is no money to improve the conditions of service of Lecturers and all other Public Servants. But there is money to improve the Conditions of Service of politicians & article 71 office holders. We must brace up for action to restore equilibrium.”
