The Concerned Alumni Association of the Cape Coast Technical University has called on government as a matter of urgency to constitute the governing council of the university as the absence of the Council is hampering academic and administrative work at the university.
The limited functions of the Interim Management Council (IMC) of the institution , the group explains is slowing the pace of activities at the school with students already complaining about the work of the IMC in addressing their concerns.
The group explains that things will indeed get worse if a governing council is not put in place as members of the IMC are even working on part time basis with most decisions lingering on at the expense of academic and administrative work.
Addressing a press conference at the Cape Coast Technical University Thursday morning , the spokesperson for the group Mr. Daniel Abawana urged government to stop the National Council for Tertiary Education from perpetuating acts of illegalities at the University at the expense of academic and administrative life of the institution.
According to him, they have picked signals of NCTEs intention of imposing the chairperson of the IMC of the technical university Prof. Sarah Darkwah on them as Acting Vice Chancellor.
The group, he says will resist such move as it is unhealthy and against the statutes of the technical university as well as the Technical Universities Act 2016 and the Amendment Act 2018.
