Dr Joseph Wulifan, the UTAG branch President at the Simon Deidong-Dombo University for Business and Integrated Development Studies (SDD-UBIDS) has indicated the UTAG members at the university voted against the suspension of the strike on Saturday, February 26, 2022.

According to Dr. Wulifan, the votes stood at 80 per cent against the suspension of the strike while 20 per cent of voters supported the suspension of the strike.

“It is the same, I am even on my way to lectures. Per our bylaws, what NEC sought to do was to put a temporal suspension on the strike to pave way for the discussions to begin with the government. Usually, when they place such, the Constitution mandates that within 10 days, those decisions would be reached”.

“We voted on Saturday and the results were that 80 per cent voted that the strike should continue while 20 per cent supported the role of NEC,” he said.

UTAG members at SDD-UBIDS join their counterparts at the CKT-UTAS in the rejection of the strike action.

Dr. Wulifan argued that while the voting process to count the voices of the lecturers at the local levels is good, it was not needed because NEC would is mandated to call for a resumption of the strike 14 days after it was initially suspended adding that “once members have voted, with today being the fifth day, from today to the close of the week, NEC would have collated all the results and also taken a decision either to resume the strike that very Friday, the next Monday, in two weeks time or whatever”.

Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East, Dr. Wulifan said while the university may have voted against the suspension of the strike, they would follow NEC’s directive to return to the classrooms while the ratification for the collated responses from the universities continues. Also, while the lecturers are in the classroom, they are hopeful that government would address the concerns that have been raised.
