The leadership of Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana (GRASAG) last week called off the planned picketing at the Flagstaff House to press home our demand for the release of bursaries and thesis grant. The main reason behind the call off was to engage government further, as moves were made by same but unfortunately as at now we have not been able to get government to give us assurances on the release of our bursaries and thesis grant. Again, meetings with the Scholarship Secretariat and the Ministry of Education have not yielded the desired results.
Leadership thus announces to all members, the media and the general public that our planned demonstration comes off this Wednesday 28th September 2016 as communicated earlier.
On this note, members are expected to report at Obra Spot, Kwame Nkrumah Circle at 7:30am. Members are humbly requested to wear any black or red attire for the demonstration or any attire with a touch of GRASAG. The GRASAG National President will address the gathering briefly. The address will precede the march which is scheduled to end at the Hearts of Oak Park, National Arts Centre.
ROUTES FOR THE DEMONSTRATION
Farisco Traffic Light
Atta Mills High Street
Hearts of Oak Park
There will be a press conference at the Hearts of Oak Park after the demonstration to brief the media on this action. Petitions will also be presented to the Ministry of Finance and the President through the Chief of Staff.
Leadership will use this opportunity to invite all graduate students and stakeholders of Ghana’s education to come out in their numbers to support this good cause.
Long live GRASAG
Long live Ghana
