A coalition of Hygiene Students have boycotted their end of semester examination which begins Monday, July 20, 2020. The Coalition consists of students of Ho Schools of Hygeien, Accra School of Hygiene and Tamale Schools of Hygiene. These students came together to arrive at the decision to boycott their end of semester exams due to the non-payment of their allowances since 2017 up to date.
The SRC together with the final year students of the Schools of Hygiene writes to inform all media houses about their decision to suspend the end of semester examination scheduled for tomorrow 20th July 2020 to 25th July 2020 until they receive thier due allowance from the appropriate authority.
Some years ago, The Principal of the School of Hygiene at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Mr. Raphael Komla Nutsukpui together with some key people called on the government to restore the trainee allowance of students of that institution. In Nutsukpuis’s address, He stated that the health profession was very essential to the growth of the economy, hence the need to be concerned about the training of personnel of that sector.
This decision together with other ongoing actions has been taken by the entire final year students of our various institutions to propel the decisions of the government to attend to the cry of students of the Schools of Hygiene.
They said the decision is not in any way intended to undermine the authorities of our noble institutions but we believe the aftermath when successful, will inure to the benefit of the Schools of Hygiene.
“We hope to achieve our intended objective in due course so as we can successfully write our exams and complete successfully.” it concluded.
