Teachers’ Coalition for Good Governance (TCGG) with pressure group called Concerned Ghanaians have declared to demonstrate against the government on Independence Day March 6, over erratic power supply and the “refusal of the government to reduce fuel prices despite a drastic drop in prices worldwide.”

The statement collectively signed by Frank Amoako, Benard Barffour, Martha Kodua, Gyawu, Frank Ntiamoah and Alex Nyamekye said TCGG “shall also demonstrate in protest” to “the victimisation and unfair treatment being given to teachers in the Ashanti Region who are perceived to be averse to government.”

“The now persistent lack of electricity has rendered teachers unable to adequately prepare lesson notes for class, relying on candlelight, torches, paraffin lights and other primitive forms of electrical power.

The statement said a lack of lighting and power has frequently forced closures of tertiary and secondary schools, not to mention libraries, laboratories and other resource centers.

“As educators of the next generation of our future leaders, we strongly feel it is our civic and moral duty to draw to the attention of our current leaders, that this ‘dumsor’ crisis is sabotaging our educational institutions – from kindergarten to the university.

“One does not need to be told that the country is living in the dark ages, both literally and metaphorically. In this 21st Century, it is ridiculous that Ghana cannot produce the electricity required to meet its needs,” the statement said.

 “Due to the perpetual state of crisis that this government has plunged the nation into, it does not deserve the salute of any student or teacher on 6th March”, the statement added.
