The Ex-president of Ghana John Dramani Mahama has revealed in a recent tweet what the universities in the country need. According to the National Democratic Congress leader, our universities need partnerships.
A partnership that fosters academic freedom, enhances their efficiency and also invests in research and development. The KNUST-INCAS COVID-19 rapid test kit innovation is one such outcome that is begging for support.
Our academics and students need support to focus on their core mandates of creating and sharing knowledge, not a Public Universities Bill that seeks to control and undermine the independence of our intellectuals and other researchers in state-owned universities.
