Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the University for Development Studies [UDS], Prof. Felix Kofi Abagale has called on the government to support private tertiary education institutions, in order to help absorb the increasing number of graduates from the second cycle institutions in the country.

Speaking at the 3rd Congregation of the Millar Institute for Transdisciplinary and Development Studies at Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, Prof. Abagale predicted that in the next 3 to 4 years, there will be pressure on public tertiary education institutions in the country, and the support of private institutions will be required, provide quality tertiary education.

“With the current double-track educational policy for secondary education, it is very much predictive that in the next 3 to 4 years, there will be pressure on public tertiary education and it is only the private tertiary education institutions which can support the government in delivering quality education,” he said.
