Withdraw ‘Unconstitutional’ University Bill – UTAG To Gov’t



The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), has described the university bill as unconstitutional demanding its immediate withdrawal.

Addressing the press  in Accra on Wednesday, September 16, Prof. Akosua Adomako Ampofo, Acting Dean of International Programmes at the University of Ghana noted that the bill will only retrogress the country’s universities.

“It poses a threat to the ability of students, lecturers, and administrators to carry out their day to day learning, teaching and research functions without fear of government dictates or reprisals,”she said.

Director of Programmes at CDD Ghana, Kojo Asante, on his part said the sponsors of the bill have not provided an honourable justification for the bill to be passed.

“Despite a proposal for the bill to be withdrawn, the cabinet has since not heeded to our proposal but we are calling for the bill to be withdrawn because it poses a threat to Ghana’s growth in higher education and the autonomy of universities,” he stressed.
