If you are done celebrating, let’s get a little serious…

Members of the Association say they are not happy at the slow pace attitude adopted by the Akufo-Addo administration in putting in place university councils, six months after taking over the governance of the country.

President of UTAG, Dr Harry Agbenu said “It is unacceptable that for six good months none of our public universities has a council. Several efforts have been made, we have contacted the Minister of Education on the havoc that the absence of the councils are causing to the universities. However, he said it is unfortunate that there is still no information as to when the councils will be reconstituted.

“To even make the matters worse the universities are ready to graduate their students; the universities are in a fix as to what to do, and we have given the government an ultimatum of two weeks after which we will take our protest a bit higher” he hinted.

UTAG has again threatened to take on the government should it implement the university remittance policy which mandates the universities to remit 34 per cent of internally generated funds.

“We are going to take them on, we will not sit down for anything like that to happen, but if the government insists then the government may have to go to court to test whether the universities are supposed to generate funds for the government instead of the government funding the universities,” Dr. Agbenu said.
