The memorandum is to ensure that the governance, administration and accountability structures of public universities are appropriately harmonized without tampering with the autonomy and education freedoms of the Public Universities.
“Therefore, UTAG took into consideration the best practices as captured in the existing Acts and Statutes, and inputs from the ten (10) Branches of UTAG in arriving at this memorandum.”
UTAG President,Professor Charles Marfo speaking to Nana Ampratwum on Omanbapa show said;
''Everything is wrong with the bill as at now....the bill has not been able to serve the purpose it was designed to''
''The bill should have been clearly stated the preambles for which it was introduced and to correct the wrongs in the education system but this bill has not done that''
''UTAG national believes in government policies and as Universities we cannot take entrenched position on such matters and so that led us to forward a memorandum to the parliamentary select committee''
''Even before 2018 when the bill was passed we had earlier admonished the committee with recommendations on the bill''
