The University of Ghana chapter of the University Teachers Association of Ghana(UTAG) have unanimously decided not to call off their ongoing strike despite the directive from the National Labour Commission(NLC) to call it off.

On Monday, January 10, UTAG declared that it has laid down its tools due to government’s failure to address the worrying conditions of service of lecturers.
