Vice Chancellors of public universities in Ghana have threatened to cut down on student intake should government continue to prohibit them from replacing and recruiting staff.

According to the Executive Secretary of the Vice Chancellors Ghana, Peter Kaba, who spoke to Starr News, a government embargo on staff recruitment is putting undue pressure on the few staff.

“It is seriously impacting on the activities of the universities because the universities cannot move forward…Society is dynamic and universities must move to meet the dynamism of society but we cannot”.

“Even there is a PHD (holder) who came from Canada in Aerospace Engineering for University of Science and Technology. They put him on wait for approval; the approval never came and he’s gone back to Canada. You finish Aerospace Engineering today, Airbus is picking you as an employee. Is that not industry based?”

“The end result of this whole thing is, the universities might be forced to cut down on student numbers, because we cannot put more pressure on the few faculties”

“They will die. Look at marking 800 or 1000 scripts, 1100 scripts, he is also a human being. He will go off and we do not want to put much more pressure on them. Every day they are reporting ill, pressure at the university hospital,” Kaba lamented.

According to the Vice Chancellors Ghana, the worst affected institutions are the newly established University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho and the University of Energy and Natural Resources in Sunyani whose subventions have delayed for six months.
