National President of UTAG faces impeachment for supporting Public University Bill

Prof. Charles Ofosu Marfo is said to be “consistently misrepresenting and sidelining UG-UTAG’s position on the Public University Bill in his public engagements.”

In a statement signed by UG-UTAG President, Dr Samuel Nkumbaan he said reveals the National President is not committed to the withdrawal or rejection of the bill which is before Parliament.

The Public University Bill, 2020 when passed gives the President, the powers to appoint Vice Chancellors and majority members of the University Council.
