Barely a week ago, we presented a petition raising some concerns across the student front to the outfit of the Ministry of Education. We were very amazed that, in less than 24 hours, we were called into a meeting so that we can put our issues up so that major stakeholders like the National Council for Tertiary Education, Vice-Chancellors Ghana and other relevant stakeholders were brought together as much as possible for our issues to be addressed”, he added.
