Members of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic branch of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) have expressed dissatisfaction at delays by government in converting the Polytechnic into a Technical University.
In a release signed by Chairman of the branch, Emmanuel Akampaadgi stated that, after working hard to meet the requirement set by the Technical Committee that assessed the school and the passing of the Technical University Amendment Act, Act 922 members taught Bolgatanga Polytechnic would have become a Technical University by now. This however, appears to be a mirage.
The statement indicated that, the delay in the conversion is causing a lot of anxiety among staff of the Polytechnic and the effects of low enrollment, staff attritions and lowering of status.
They further disclosed that the enrollment of the Polytechnic in the 2018/2019 academic year has been worse ever, since the inception of the institution, and many potential applicants are opting for Technical Universities the reason being that eight out of the 10 Polytechnics in the country are elevated, making it difficult for people to enroll into the institution.
