Minister of State in Charge of Tertiary Education, Prof. Kwesi Yankah has lauded efforts by authorities at the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) in improving education delivery in the country.
He explained that the university’s judicious use of their Internally Generated Funds(IGF) to embark on massive infrastructural development was worth commending as it will go a long way in improving enrolment at the university.
He indicated that the country expects enrolment into public tertiary institutions to increase by 50% by the next academic year necessitating that efforts were doubled to accommodate them into the tertiary education system.
The situation, he said, was due to the first batch of Free Senior High School Education graduating and hopefully seeking admissions into the tertiary institutions including the University of Education, Winneba which already is the most populous in the country with a total of 85,000 students.
Prof. Kwesi Yankah who was at UEW to inspect ongoing projects made up of lecture halls, halls of residence, hospital and accommodation facilities for lecturers expressed satisfaction at the spate of progress of work and indicated government’s commitment in ensuring that the necessary infrastructure was put up to improve accessibility into the tertiary institutions.
