Winneba (C/R), July 29, GNA – Professor Kwasi
Yankah, Minister of Tertiary Education, has called on the University of
Education, Winneba (UEW) Council work with all stakeholders to resolve existing
challenges affecting the progress of the institution.

I have every confidence that the reconstituted
(UEW) Council in exercising its discretion will take the matter out of court
for amicably settlement and to fully restore normalcy, he said.

Prof Yankah made the call while addressing the
21st congregation, 2nd session of UEW at Winneba.

He said UEW governing council has among its
membership individuals holding highly responsible positions, where alternative
dispute resolution is a routine practice, hence the need to resolve existing
challenges.

Prof Yankah said government under the
leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will not let down
University Teachers Association of Ghana, (UTAG) and would work together to
reach a consensus on existing concerns.

The Minister said considerable goodwill has
been demonstrated in the swift restoration of books and research allowances
which were otherwise being phase out, while the bill for national research
found is almost ready to be laid before Parliament.

Prof Yankah reminded the graduates that their
new status comes with major responsibilities as they are expected to become
role models for their alma mater and the entire society.

The Free Senior High School programme  which been officially launched by the
Minister of Education will make higher education virtually free and accessible
to all who are given placements by the Computer School Selection Placement
System (CSSPS), after the Basic Education Certificate Examinations, he said.
