Mahama Vowed To Repeal Public Universities Bill if passed by Government

Leader of the opposition National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama has vowed to ensure that Public Universities gain back control of their respective institutions should the government proceed and pass the Public Universities Bill into an Act of Parliament.

John Mahama says that he will not hesitate to initiate steps for its immediate repeal if he is elected President in the 2020 election.

In a statement released on Sunday, June 14, the former president urged the government to listen to stakeholders in the education sector and immediately withdraw the Public Universities Bill 2020.

He says that the “Bill, as it stands, does not only risk undermining academic innovation and ingenuity but will also jettison decades of scholarly excellence and adversely affect Ghana’s position as the preferred destination for international scholarly collaboration”

“Our academics and students need support to focus on their core mandates of creating and sharing knowledge, not a Public Universities Bill that seeks to control and undermine the independence of our intellectuals and other researchers in state-owned universities,” he said.
