Some aggreived students of Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) have protested a directive from management asking those who paid their fees late to defer their courses for the year.
Clothed in black and red, the students have besieged the premises of the school chanting war songs to drum home their displeasure.
The students have accused the management of the Institute as being unfair and are asking for the directive revoked when they spoke to Ghanaontheglobe.com
For the agitated students, management should have given them a prior notice to the consequences of late payment.
They also accused the school of being insensitive considering the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has had on people’s source of income.

“Students were unaware of the consequences of late payment of fees. So we went about our duties, doing our assignments, online tests and all that only for management to come out that [affected students should defer their course]. They must just change this decision that is what we are saying,” one student said.
Another also added, “I knew that if we don’t pay early, we are going to defer but then the issue is, we are in a pandemic so any wise institute would at least give a grace period since some parents lost their job and the economy became fragile.”
