Education News | Three bodies call for conversion of two Polytechnics

Sun, 21 May, 2017

Sumbrungu (UE), May 19, GNA – Three bodies have appealed to government to convert the Bolgatanga and Wa Polytechnics into Technical Universities to represent Upper East and Upper West as had been carried out in the eight other regions.

The bodies; the Technical Universities Administrators Association of Ghana (TUAAG) , Polytechnic Teachers Association of Ghana (POTAG) and Teachers and Educational Workers Union of Ghana (TEWU ) , made the call at the seventh Delegates Conference of TUAAG held in Bolgatanga on the theme” The Role of Technical Universities in the implementation of one District , one factory”.

 

According to Mr Kamal –Deen Alhassan, the National President of TUAAG, the scenario where all the Polytechnics in the country had been converted into Technical Universities leaving the two out could jeopardize their growth.

 

He cited the possibility of the converted technical universities poaching good lecturers from the unconverted ones and also the likelihood of many students seeking admission to the technical universities to the detriment of the remaining two unconverted Polytechnics. 

 

Speaking on the theme “The Role of Technical Universities in the implementation of One District, One factory”, the National President stated that technical education was key for the effective implementation of the policy.

 

“To ensure Regional balance in development and to avoid discrimination, there is the urgent need for the government to fast- track the upgrading of the Bolgatanga and Wa Polytechnics to be at par with the eight converted technical Universities”

 

Mr Emmanuel Akampaadge, the Local Chapter Chairman of POTAG, who expressed worry about the slow process in converting the two Polytechnics said the implementation of the One District, One factory policy in the two regions was likely to suffer .

 

Mr Elias Ayambila Apasiya, Local Chapter Chairman of TEWU stressed the need for government to speed up in constituting governing councils of the Technical Universities to ensure the efficient management of the affairs of the institutions.

 

The Vice Rector of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic, Professor Samuel Alnaa, who welcomed all the delegates from the ten regions, expressed optimism that the government policy of one District , One Factory had the huge opportunity in boosting the growth of the national economy.

 

He said the one District, One Factory policy could also serve as one of the focal points for students of the technical universities to undertake their industrial attachment.

 

The Upper East Regional Minister, Mr Rockson Ayine Bukari, gave the assurance that plans were underway to convert the two institutions into technical universities and to also constitute the governing councils of the institutions.
