THE SANE UTAG PRESIDENT OF UEW
Truly one is not bound to take a decision when confused. What am I hearing ? That UTAG branch of UEW goes on an indefinite strike. Really for what reason? Is it for the fact that The VC and F.O have been injuncted? Where does the injunction affect the existence and daily operations of UTAG?
Indeed Martin Luther King Jr’s. statement, the silence of good people is more dangerous than the brutality of the bad person is real.
Since when did it become that, few minority take a selfish and individualistic decision for it to be imperative on the majority?
Dr. Bekoe and his few selfish cohorts who have been beneficiaries of the supposed illegal transactions made by the victims of today’s high court ruling should for once think twice and stop making vulnerable,the innocent students who have paid fees and needs their service as lecturers.
At least can’t Dr. Bekoe who is spearheading this illegal strike also be forced by his conscience that, the students, and their poor parents after struggling to pay that huge unwarranted fees deserve something better rather than the self awarding contracts that goes on up there?
I don’t intend, to lament about whether there is any strike or not. Our problem has to do with the fact that, The UTAG President Dr. Bekoe has been a living witness to the massive ,improper and malfeasant deals that have bedridden our university. Therefore as an upright and level headed persons as we are, we highly expect that the interest of the students through whom we get meaning to our living here on UEW campus should be prioritized rather than been petty and allowing the name of a respectable body like UTAG to be ran down by meddling in this issue.
As a matter of fact, no one gave you our consent to in the first place get a lawyer only for UTAG to be slapped with a fine, let alone calling a strike. No it’s never our plan and we will be in class to teach no matter what.
The last time, you were roaring and lamenting that you had documents of the illegal deals of the F.O and even called the VC to warn him. What changed today?
The fact that you have been promised Asso. Prof doesn’t mean the entire lecturers should dance to your tune by leaving our work in the name of sympathy and solidarity.
This is a clarion call to you to reverse your thoughts about the strike before we openly disobey your selfish decision.
We are not on strike
