The Management and the Academic Board of the University of Education, Winneba has postponed its 2018/2019 academic year congregation.

A press release signed by the University's registrar, Paul Osei-Barimah Esq reviewed that due to prevailing circumstances beyond their control, the much advertised and scheduled July Congregation for the graduands of the 2018/2019 academic year on the Winneba, Kumasi and Ashanti Mampong campuses have been postponed indefinitely.

According to him, new dates for the Congregation shall be announced as soon as the Governing Council is reconstituted for the University.

"Any inconvenience caused to the general public, stakeholders, especially the graduating class of 2018/2019 academic year is deeply regretted," the statement added.

The Council’s mandate expired on Wednesday, June 17 but despite weeks of notice by the authorities of the University to the Ministry of Education and the National Council for Tertiary Education(NCTE), the Governing Council has still not being reconstituted.

The situation, if not resolved, is likely to affect the academic advancement of the students numbering over 15,000 made up of diplomats, first degrees, masters and Ph.D. students.

Some of the graduating students who have traveled far distances to attend Saturday’s ceremony are now left stranded on the campus as authorities cannot also give them assurance on the event and subsequent ones in Kumasi, Mampong campuses of the university.

Some of the prospective graduates who spoke to Starr News Central regional correspondent Kwaku Baah-Acheamfour are worried about the negative development and are calling on President Akufo-Addo to intervene by ensuring that their future is not jeopardized.
