Senior lecturers and staff at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), have embarked on a strike.

The workers say they will only return to the lecture halls and other offices if a substantive Deputy Rector is elected.

The Acting Registrar, Julius Atikpui, called off a convocation to elect a Deputy Rector on Thursday.

He said the decision was arrived at in consultation with the Ministry of Education, and the National Council for Tertiary Education.

But the workers argue that the decision was a deliberately taken to frustrate the process of the election.

A mail sent to all staff members and sighted by Citi FM said: “the decision to strike arose from the failure by GIMPA Management to conform to a key element of voting to elect a Deputy Rector today as provided within the road map of 31st January, 2017.”

“The behaviour by Management is contrary to the advice of the lawyers.”

“Please be bold and conform to this directive. This applies to both administrative, teaching and supporting staff.

“The strike action will remain in force until we have a satisfactory resolution; a Deputy Rector is elected,” the mail indicated.
