A Senior Lecturer at the KAAF University College, Prof K.B Omane-Antwi has expressed disappointment about the government's inability to extend Ghana Education Trust (GET) Fund support to Private Universities, despite the huge sums of taxes the Institutions pay to the government.
He disclosed that Ghana Education Trust (GET) Fund is not for public Universities alone, hence Private Universities must enjoy GETFund projects to improve the academic performance in the Private Universities.
Prof Omane-Antwi who doubles as the Board Chairman of the KAAF University College made this statement during the inauguration of a 15 member Governing Council Board in the College.
According to him, Private Universities are suffering and not getting any financial support from the government but have no option but to use students School fees to settle lecturers as well as other infrastructure development.
Prof Omane-Antwi called on the government to support the management of the private Universities while providing a conducive environment for teaching and learning to prevail.
He bemoaned the situation where the government is giving free Laptops to public teachers but has ignored Private University teachers who are also contributing to the development of the country.
Prof Omane-Antwi appealed to the government to as a matter of urgency pay keen attention to the private Universities and give them the needful support.
KAAF University College is the first private University in Ghana accredited by the National Accreditation Board to run degree programs.
It is affiliated with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
