Dr. Clement Apaak, Member of Parliament for Builsa South, has described the government’s decision to raise fees in public tertiary institutions by 15% as insensitive.
Dr. Apaak, a member of parliament’s education committee, believes this will burden students, parents, and guardians at a time when the country is already in a serious economic crisis.
The MP stated in a tweet that the various universities have not been able to function as efficiently as expected due to the GETFund being capped.
As a result, he wants the government to de-cap GETFund ro function as needed.
He said the various school is struggling due to inadequate funding, and the government must do the needful.
”Students cannot afford 15% fee increase in this shambolic economy, yet universities are struggling to function due to inadequate funding so want to charge students more than 15%. The de-capping of GETFUND is the solution, universities will get support, gov’t must do the needful.”
