Four public universities in the country will be renamed after the newly drafted Public University Bill is adopted and passed by Parliament without any amendments.

The affected institutions include the University of Development Studies, the University of Professional Studies Accra, the University of Health and Allied Sciences, as well as the University of the Energy and Natural Resources.

It is expected that the University of Development Studies will be renamed after the first President under the Fourth Republic, Jerry John Rawlings.

The University of Professional Studies, Accra will be renamed after its founder, Nana Opoku Ampomah.

A former member of the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC) and Convention People’s Party (CPP) will be honoured with University of Health and Allied Sciences while the University of Energy and Natural Resources is to be named in honor of former Prime Minister of Ghana, Kofi Abrefa Busia.

Last year President Akufo-Addo gave the hint that government will soon rename the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) after its founder, Nana Opoku Ampomah.

This was after he officially renamed the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) to the George Grant University of Mines and Technology, after the first President of the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC).

The president also announced that the Wa Polytechnic will be named after Ghana’s former President, Dr. Hilla Liman.
