In an effort to protest a decision to raise tuition by 15% that was made without consulting the Student Representative Council (SRC), Tamale Technical University students skipped class on Friday.
The students argue that the increase is unjustified in light of the numerous problems that remain unresolved.
On Friday morning, the pupils gathered in front of the school leadership to voice their complaints.
According to Abdul Razak Aziz, the majority leader in the student parliament, “management made this choice without us, which renders the result void.
The SRC is required to participate in such choices by our rules. We therefore reject whatever choice they may have made.
Management, meanwhile, has rejected the increase, saying that it is only a suggestion.
Osman Mubarik, the director of public affairs, stated that “the academic board yesterday reviewed it and adopted a motion.
We’re still debating it because we’re not positive by what proportion we should raise it.
Despite this, we think the rise is justified because other southern institutions have raised their tuition, and we feel we must do the same.
