GIJ authorities justify deferment order to students

The management of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has described as lawful its order for students who could not pay their school fees on time to defer their programme for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The directive angered the students, who besieged the school’s Osu campus on Wednesday morning.


However, the school (GIJ) has justified the directive is in accordance with the Institute’s Undergraduate Academic Policies and Procedures.
