Education Expert, Nii Armah Addy has described as “too little too late” Parliament’s intervention in the current stalemate among the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), the National Labour Commission (NLC) and the employers; the government.

“Education is the one single thing that when it goes wrong, it throws the whole country into a jigsaw puzzle. When it happened in the first week, going on into the second week, Parliament should have stepped in,” he said.

Mr. Addy said Parliament’s failure to address the issue quickly could lead to speculation that the delay was deliberate to drive home government stance that there is no money to run the affairs of the country, as such, the Electronic Transaction Levy (E-levy) should be passed with haste.

He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East.

It would be recalled that when the Ranking Member on the Education Select Committee and MP for Akatsi North, Peter Kotoe Nortsu spoke on the same platform, he hinted that the Parliamentary Select Committee would meet UTAG after all else had failed.

The NLC and UTAG are expected back in court Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
