The leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) led by John Mahama, today met with the national executives of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) in Kumasi.
The meeting was part of the NDCs engagement with stakeholders ahead of the 2020 elections.
Speaking at the meeting Mr. Mahama said, “The party will continue to promote greater academic freedom in the universities, promising that developments on the campuses of the University of Education, Winneba, and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) will never occur under his administration”.
He has, therefore, cautioned government against actions that are affecting cordial relationships between lecturers and management.
Mr. Mahama was accompanied by Professor Joshua Alabi, a former Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Accra, NDC Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Ashanti Regional Chairman Nana Kwasi.
