Group questions NUGS over press statement

nugsA youth group; Brigade of young social democrats has questioned the motive behind a recent press statement from the National Union of Ghana Students.

The Umbrella body for students in Ghana last week in a press conference highlighted several policies being churned out by government which they believed is inimical to education in Ghana and threatened to take legal action against government if some of the policies were not reversed.

The group, which insists it is non-partisan has expressed disappointment in the leadership of NUGS describing their Press statement as inaccurate and a clear demonstration of bad faith.

They maintain, the leadership of NUGS should have engaged government and other stakeholders to address the challenges faced by the Ghanaian student rather than politicizing the issues.

Deputy Public Relations Director for the group, Allen Degraft Quansah tells the allegations NUGS leveled against government is not immediately relevant to its course as a student body. He also questioned the wisdom in the action of the NUGS executives at a time students in Ghana are facing serious challenges in their quest to get quality education.

He accuses NUGS of sidelining pertinent issues affecting students and dabbling in partisan politics.
