Government must withdraw the Public University Bill with immediate effect because it is inimical to education, the University of Ghana branch of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) said.
In a statement on Wednesday, the group said claims by President Akufo-Addo that the rationale behind the bill is incontestable is false.
“In an interview on the 4th of September 2020 on Oman FM, the President conceded that “valid criticisms” had been brought against the PUB and said that these would be reviewed. However, the President ultimately concluded that “the basic thrust of the Bill and the rationale for it is incontestable”. With this press conference, UG-UTAG is, in fact, contesting the very basis of the Bill and calling for it to be completely withdrawn.
“In sum, our objections are that the PUB is unconstitutional, unnecessary, and will create more problems than it claims to solve,” the statement said.
