Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Minister of Education, says the government will grant clearance to all public tertiary institutions in the coming months to enable them to recruit and replace critical staff, the GNA reports.
Dr Adutwum made the statement in an address read on his behalf by Professor Yayra Dzakadzie, the Deputy Director of Ghana Education Tertiary Commission (GTEC), during the Ho Technical University 24th Congregation.
He said the government was determined to provide adequate funding for Technical Universities, creating an environment that fostered relevance to both national and international development through retooling, innovative, high-quality teaching and learning that is driven by ICT and research.
It is unknown the number of teaching and non-teaching staff government intends to recruit at the universities and other tertiary institutions across the country.
But in June 2020, then Education Minister Dr Mathew Opoku-Prempeh announced at a press briefing that government has given financial clearance for over 6,178 staff to be recruited into the tertiary institutions in the country. SOURCE: Kasatintin.com
