The Minister Of Education Swore in 4 New Members of The Governing Council of The University Of Cape Coast.

The Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh on behalf of the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, swore in 4 new members of the governing council of the University of Cape Coast at the University’s campus and also joined the council for it inaugural meeting.

Thanking the members for accepting to serve this country in this capacity, Dr Prempeh entreated them not to compromise on quality, but rather strengthen the niche carved for the University since it’s establishment.

He also stressed the importance of education training and capacity building that the University is noted for as well as the need to improve upon the gains achieved over the years for the utmost benefit of the country.

The Minister of Education further emphasized the government’s commitment to supporting the University to adequately prepare for the first batch of the graduate students of the free senior high schools. The success of the free SHS has seen the successful increase of students entering our senior high schools.  Our tertiary institutions must therefore expect large numbers of students to gain admission this year, with implication for hall accommodation, lecture theatres, laboratories and other facilities. Government will augment the University’s internal arrangements with regards to its developments.

He congratulated Prof. Johnson Nyarko Boampong on his appointment as the new Vice Chancellor of the University and extended his compliment to Mr. Jeff Teye Emmanuel Onyame on his appointment as the Registrar. I am confident that their leadership will propel this university to  greater heights in the times to come, he concluded.
