The purpose of the statement released by teacher trainees is to ensure that government should come to their aid to solve the issue at hand. They are not in a better position to tell CETAG and CENTSAG to call it off.

They are assuring the government and management of colleges of education that if the strike is not resolved by the 20th of November, they will go home.

The current strike action resulted in teacher trainees feeding themselves in school in this time of hardship where trainees’ allowances are not paid.

Below is the full statement teacher trainees want the government to read and they call for consideration

Teacher Trainees Release Statement Over the Strike Action

We, the students of all the 46 colleges of education in Ghana here, write to inform you that, we are suffering in our various colleges as a result of the ongoing CETAG and CENTSAG strike.

Where the side of CETAG, all classrooms, and academic activities have been stopped then on the side of CENTSAG, which comprises the Non-teaching staff, has also stopped all their activities, including the cooks, who prepare our daily meals for us.

We want to inform the principals and the government that we are dying of hunger, so we are pleading with the government to do the need for these people to come back to work so that we can also survive.

We are giving up until the 20th of November, 2022 if we don’t hear any good news, we will all leave for our various houses, because we can’t stay here for hunger to kill us, and if we leave we are not coming back for the rest of the semester unless, in January where the next academic year and the next semester begins due to the increment of lorry fare because most of us leave far from where our school is, some of us even spend 500 cedis on transportation alone before we get to campus.
