Five new executive members of the Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) of the Bolgatanga Technical University (BTU) have been sworn into office.

They are Mr. Oswald Atiga, Chairman; Mad. Leticia Yamga, Vice; Dr. George Duut, Secretary; Mr. Baba Ayannor, Organising Secretary and Mr. Redruth Ayimpoya, Treasurer.

The old executive held the fort for the past two years when the institution was then a Polytechnic until the 3rd of April, 2020 when parliament amended the Technical Universities Act (922) converting the Bolgatanga and Wa Polytechnics to Technical Universities.

Speaking to Radio Ghana, the outgoing Chairman of the Bolgatnaga branch of TUTAG, Mr. Emmanuel Akanpaadgi explained that, the old national leadership had some challenges but they were able to defy the odds to form TUTAG which is now the union for the teaching staff of the Technical Universities (TUs).
