The Ghana Institute of journalism is denying students access to both the Osu-Ringway campus and the new one at Dzorwulu.
The decision according to security officers on duty is “an order from above.”
This comes after the management of GIJ issued a communiqué on Tuesday Mach 23, 2021, directing all students “who paid their fees after the registration deadline to defer their programme.”
According to the communiqué, management took the decision “at its meeting held on Monday, March 22, 2021” a day into their revision week in preparation for their first semester exams.
Although it is unclear why school authorities decided to lock out students, some observers believe it has to do with the planned student demonstration scheduled for today, March 24, 2021.
Meanwhile, management and the Dean of Students will not comment on the matter “until further notice.”
Lecturers are however being allowed on campus.
