GHANA ALSO REQUIRES A FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT REVOLUTION
IN TERTIARY EDUCATION THAT ADDRESSES EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS

ACCRA (Xinhua) -- Ghana’s minister of education here on Wednesday called for a more sustainable funding mechanism for tertiary education that caters for research and the needs of financially distressed students.

Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, while addressing a National Dialogue on Tertiary Education in Ghana, said the situation where the cost of education was skyrocketing uncontrollably was a matter of concern to the government and sponsors.

“We do not only require more diversified innovative means of financing tertiary education but we also require a financial management revolution in tertiary education that addresses efficiency and effectiveness,” she stated.

NATIONAL SUMMIT ON TERTIARY EDUCATION ENDS IN ACCRATertiary education is an inseparable component in the development of every nation state while research activities of universities provide a crucial support for national innovation and the development of new products and services, Prof. Jophus Anamuah-Mensah, former Vice Chancellor, University of Education, Winneba, has stated. 

Prof. Anamuah-Mensah, who was delivering the key note address at the opening of the National Summit on Tertiary Education in Accra, last week, indicated that tertiary education was integral to the achievement of the national vision of a just, free and prosperous Ghana that supported economic development, productivity and broad-based social development. 

He said the prosperity of Ghana depended on the quality of education of its citizens, particularly the leadership, and that the vision of the nation could only be realized through a world class tertiary education system that was accessible, internationally competitive, efficient, diversified and enabling Ghana to be a productive knowledge-based economy.

However, he said, the current state of Ghana’s tertiary education system did not provide opportunity for developing entrepreneurial and innovative skills and the realization of such a vision.

Senegal, at the UN General Assembly on October 31, “invite[d] all States Parties to contribute all of the assistance and cooperation necessary for the court.”
