The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the Tamale Technical University and its alumni have expressed disappointment over Government’s feet dragging in the constitution of a Governing Council for the University.
In a press statement dated Tuesday February 26 2019, the SRC and alumni noted that while Government has been quick enough to constitute Governing Councils for Wa Technical University and Bolgatanga Technical University, it has however deliberately delayed in constituting a council for the Tamale Technical University, making it difficult for management to take certain vital decisions to enhance effective academic work and progress of the Institution.
They bemoaned the fact that Tamale Technical University is the only public tertiary institution in Ghana without a Governing Council. With this, they have called on Government to, as a matter of priority and urgency, put in place a Governing Council to avert a possible collapse of the University.
The statement added that since the conversion of the Institution to a University status in 2016, it has faced numerous challenges ranging from lack of infrastructure, poor state of existing facilities, and poor governance challenges contributing to the slow pace of progress of the institution.
