President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Saturday disclosed that Government is taking steps to expedite the process for granting Presidential Charters to tertiary institutions in the country.

He said the undue period associated with the granting of a Presidential Charter for both public and private universities, would be a thing of the past as Cabinet has approved recently, the establishment of the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission to regulate all universities in Ghana.

Speaking at the 14th graduation ceremony of the Ashesi University, one of Ghana’s highly rated tertiary educational institutions, President Akufo-Addo said with the imminent establishment of the Commission, applications by private universities would be expedited and those deserving of Presidential Charters would be granted one.

The granting of the Presidential Charter would make such institutions independent degree awarding universities. They would cease to be affiliated to other higher institutions of learning before awarding their certificates.

The President, who at the graduation ceremony, granted the Ashesi University with its Presidential Charter, said all public and private tertiary institutions, because of their contributions to education and learning in the country, would be treated fairly and equally when they made request for a Charter change.

He applauded the Ashesi University for its distinctive world-class educational standards and identity, and expressed the hope that the receipt of the Charter would inspire the institution to continue to operate with the same discipline and commitment quality which had made graduates of that university stand out in the world of work across the globe.

Passing on good wishes to the graduates, the President told them to reflect at all times the quality of the Ashesi brand and to make their mark in all spheres of endeavour.
