The management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism has indicated some media reports claiming students of the institute are required to pay their fees fully before registering are ‘inacurate’.
The annoucement comes at the back of a near violent protest by some students on the premises of the institute yesterday, which they say was in solidarity to some students who were denied access to examination halls on Saturday 1 December, 2018.
According to the management of the premier journalism school in Ghana, some media reports asserting that there is a ‘policy’ that demands students to ‘make full payment before registering is inacurate and should be discarded’.
The students were prevented from sitting for the exams because they couldn’t register on time and some first year students, who are required to settle 80% of their fees were denied because they failed to do so.
Some students on certain scholarships also suffered similar fate.
But in a press release ealier today the management of the school outlined the resolutions for the impasse.
Among them is the institute’s resoluteness of continuing the ‘examination… as scheduled’.
Below is the resolution by the management of GIJ after a meeting with the SRC of the institute.
