The Minister for Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempreh has revealed that government is considering the reduction of university education duration.

He said if successful, the duration for university education will be reduced from the current four years to three years.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh explained that government is planning on meeting with lecturers to discuss the possible reduction.

Speaking at the 2019 Danquah Institute Leadership lecture, the Minister noted that the reason is because all around the world, University education is for a three year period.

He said Ghana is one of the very few countries who are still practicing the four year system of University education.

Deducing from the Minister’s speech which seem like lecturers may not agree easily, the Minister assured that government will challenge the lecturers to get the current term reduced.

Touching on the history of Ghana’s education, Dr. Opoku Prempeh recalled that initially, the duration for undergoing education at the University of Ghana was three years, with a non-scoring exams taken in the first year.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh again gave an example of KNUST and said that the duration of University education initially was three years.

He described the initial system as good even though shorter than currently, saying that students at the time were still able to attain their PhDs.

Currently, the duration for University education in Ghana is four years and two years for a diploma course.

The Minister stated that government is working hard with the necessary agencies to have the entire years of education in Ghana reduced.

He reiterated that since Ghana is not an island, the country can survive with the reduction and still produce world-class graduates.

Meanwhile recently, Dr. Kwesi Amakye Boateng, a lecturer at KNUST revealed that some lecturers teaching at the Universities have fake PhDs.

He alleged that some of the lecturers seem to know very little about their area of specification and that informed his allegation.

UNN produces Nigeria’s first electric car




unn produces nigeria’s first electric car UNN produces Nigeria’s first electric car university of nigeria nsukka unn 1024x575

Mr Jelani Aliyu, the Director-General of National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC) has commended the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) for being the first institution to produce electric car in the country.

Aliyu made the commendation in Nsukka on Monday during the unveiling of a five-seater Electric Car, named ‘Lion Ozumba 551′, produced by the Faculty of Engineering in the university, NAN reports.

He urged other universities in the country to emulate UNN in giving serious attention to issues concerning innovations and technology in order to move the country to the next level.

He said: “NADDC on Feb. 6, invited UNN, University of Lagos, Usman Dan Fodio University and Metrological Institute and urged them to prepare a paper design on how to produce electric car in the country.

“The council is happy that UNN is the first to prepare a paper design and produced electrical car that has been unveiled and test-run today in the university.

“We urge other universities and higher institutions in the country to emulate innovation and technology spirit of UNN.”

The NADDC boss, who was represented by Mr David Oyetunji, Director Finance and Account in the council, hoped that the growth in automobile industry in the country would help to create more employments and save the nation’s foreign reserves spent in importing cars into the country.

“NADDC commends UNN, which recently produced the first gasification plant that used organic waste to generate electricity and today the same university is unveiling first electric-built car in the country,’’ Aliyu said.

In a remark, Prof. Charles Igwe, the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the university, who was visibly excited, said his administration would continue to give innovation and technology the highest attention in order to move the university to the next level.

Igwe expressed appreciation to the immediate past VC of UNN, Prof. Benjamin Ozumba, who, he said, laid the foundation for innovation and technology in the institution.

“I feel happy that I inherited strong institution from Ozumba and I promised I will consolidate on his numerous achievements.

“I commend the Engineering Faculty for making the university proud and naming the car after Ozumba, who ignited the fire of innovation and technology in the university.

“I also commend NADDC for its encouragement as well as giving UNN a chance to show its potential,” Igwe said.
