The Leadership of the Coalition of Concerned University Students (CoCUS) has expressed concern and despair over what they describe as the deliberate attempt by the government through the Ghana Police Service to frustrate its intended demonstration in the most unwelcoming manner.
The CoCUS issued a notice to demonstrate against the government over the protracted strike by members of the University Teachers Association (UTAG) that has left students stranded on various University campuses across the country.
The Police according to the CoCUS wants the demonstrators to change their already approved route on the grounds that the public stands to be inconvenienced by the use of the road leading from Okponglo to the Jubilee House. Moreover, the police said their demonstration is a national security threat to the nation.
The Concerned students said they consider this an attempt to prevent them from demonstrating and holding the government’s “feet to the fire.”
The leadership of the CoCUS has, thus, postponed the demonstration to Thursday, 10th February, 2022.
The group said they will join various CSOs, youth groups, and the National Democratic Congress in its yentua demonstration to register their disquiet.
They also added that their resolve to fight for the ordinary Ghanaian students is unquenchable and that they will through all means necessary, fight for that common interest.
