NUGS ‘Yentua’ demo set for May 11.
National Union for Ghana Students (NUGS) will on Monday May 11, 2015 hit the streets against the payment of utility bills by students in the tertiary institutions.
The demo dubbed: ‘Yentua’ is to vent their anger on government over its very unpopular policy.
According to the Central Committee, the second highest decision making body of NUGS, the Greater Accra Regional Police Command have given them the green light for the protest.
In a statement copied to Adomonline.com, NUGS will present a petition to government after a procession through some principal streets of Accra.
It urged all demonstrators are to converge at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle (Obra Spot) which is the starting point at 6 am and match through the principal streets of Accra.
“From Nkrumah circle to Farisco traffic lights, then UTC through to Accra Polytechnics to Nkrumah mausoleum and finally converge at the hearts park where a formal petition will be submitted” the statement added.
NUGS urged all students, parents and guardians to join the demonstration because “Education is and must remain a RIGHT rather than PRIVILEGE as underscored in Article 25 of our 1992 constitution”.
