UCC Postpones Reopening Date Indefinitely Over UTAG Strike

The University of Cape Coast (UCC) has postponed indefinitely its reopening date for the 2014/2015 academic year. Management of the University after a crunch meeting issued a statement on Thursday to announce the school’s inability to reopen for the new academic year on due to ‘circumstances beyond our control’.

UCC was to reopen for the start of the academic year on 2nd and 9th August, 2014 for fresh and continuing students respectively.

Although reasons for the postponement was not contained the statement, it is believed that it is as a result of the impending strike action embarked upon by the University’s branch of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG).

UTAG has since July 24 been a strike to press home their demand for the payment of their books and research allowances owed them by government.

In the statement signed by registrar, Mr. John Kofi Nyan, the new re-opening arrangements will be announced later.

Students of the University have therefore been entreated to check from electronic and print media as well the University website for updates on the development.
