Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism, GIJ are demonstrating over management'sÂ deferment directive
Students who gathered in front of theÂ Osu-Ringway campus are being denied access to the school premises.
The decision according to security officers on duty is â€œan order from above.â€
This comes after the management of GIJ issued a communiquÃ© on Tuesday March 23, 2021, directing all students â€œwho paid their fees after the registration deadline to defer their programme.â€
According to the communiquÃ©, management took the decision â€œat its meeting held on Monday, March 22, 2021â€ a day into their revision week in preparation for their first semester exams.
Meanwhile, management and the Dean of Students will not comment on the matter â€œuntil further notice.â€
Lecturers are however being allowed on campus.
But students are not happy with the directive and are demanding its withdrawal.
