The continuous strike by the Colleges of Education Teachers Association of Ghana (CETAG) has forced some teacher trainees at the Koforidua-Asokore SDA College of Education into playing cards on campus in order to kill time.
CETAG has been on strike for over a month now, following disagreements with government over market premium and research allowance.
The strike begun on October 29,2018 and has so far disrupted the academic calendar of teacher trainees across the country.
A report by Accra-based Starr FM indicates that students of the Koforidua-Asokore SDA College of Education have resorted to playing cards since their teachers are still on strike.
Others also choose to play football on campus from morning to evening since they have nothing doing throughout the day.
The SRC president, Bright Boakye Sarkodie Yiadom, disclosed that all that students do each day is to roam and dine.
“What we do here is right after dinning those who want to roam about they roam about, those who want to go to town they go those who want to play games they play these are the daily activities going on here,” he told Starr FM.
“So the strike is really affecting us. For the second years, the Courses for this semester is what we call Methods and it is not easy for you to study on your own.
“It has been a problem here we are just roaming about, we don’t know what to do so it will be better we close down the school for students to go home so that proper negotiation is done to resolve the impasse so that they recall us to resume academic work,” he added.
