Graduates students across the country are therefore having various discussions on various platforms such as the use of social media to organize a press conference and if it falls on death ears proceed with the a massive demonstration on various campuses across the country.

The executives of GRASAG on various campuses have not said anything to their colleagues about the allowances raising eye brows among students as to whether the executives are in bed with government over the unpaid allowances.

Such allowances are used by Graduate students in printing their questionnaires and also used for travelling to collect data for their project works.

The category of students are master of arts, master of philosophy and PhD students on various campuses across the country.
Speaking with some of the students on University of Ghana campus, Mr. Richard Sogah, an Mphil Economics student said, “I have not been able to complete my thesis up till now due to the lack of enough finance to help me get access to my data.”

The various students therefore calls on government to speed up the payment processes and get the allowance for these aggrieved students to finish their courses in peace.
