Private tertiary institutions struggling
Rector of Pentecost University College, Dr Daniel O. Walker, has cited what he says are unfavorable conditions in the education sector as a threat to tertiary education in Ghana.
He mentioned high charges of programme assessment fees, high institutional accreditation fees, high utility charges among others as some of the harsh realities stifling the growth of the private tertiary institutions.
The Rector wants the government to intervene to enable private tertiary institutions to accommodate the high number of students that expected to graduate from the free Senior High Schools.
Dr Walker was speaking at the 10th graduation ceremony of the university at Sowutuom where some 820 students graduated with diplomas, masters certificates and others in various fields of study.
The leadership of the College have also made an ambitious pledge to build more Senior High Schools in the coming days to sustain the government's policy of free SHS policy.
The university has also pledged to put up prisons, CHIP compounds, and also intensify its sanitation campaign.
He believes the gesture will support the government's development agenda halfway.
The Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led administration has gained international admiration with its bold and ambitious talk of building "Ghana beyond Aid", something the Rector commended and called on well-meaning Ghanaians to support.
Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, who was also at the graduation ceremony commended the leadership of the university and charged them to develop a rich curriculum and deliver first class teaching to empower the students.
Dr Bawumia also pledged government's support to the university's quest to become autonomous.
He also commended the graduands and urged them to be ambitious in their quest for greatness and not to listen to naysayers who will discourage them from taking initiatives.
