The 2022 graduation ceremony of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) was brought to a halt after the rains disrupted the event.

The first session of the 15th congregation, which took place at the School’s North Dzorwulu campus on Thursday, was put on hold as students ran to nearby auditoriums to seek cover.

Meanwhile, Police officials are on the ground to ensure calm is restored.

Below are some reactions of students:
