“Having finished payment of debt of about 5 million cedis the Council inherited upon assumption of office in 2017, the Council has allocated 50% that is about 3.5 million cedis of monies collected between September 2019 to August 2020 from its meager Internally Generated Fund for rehabilitation or refurbishment and maintenance of physical structure and upgrade of the University’s Information Communication Technology infrastructure ,data base center and acquisition of tools and equipment to improve the facilitation of Teaching and Learning process,” the Council Chairman explained .

Prof. Obeng Apori said the Coronavirus Pandemic has affected cash flow of the University due to non payment of fees as a results of closure of schools to contain the spread of the virus.

A situation which has been exacerbated by delay in payment of funds to the University by Statutory bodies such as Students Loans Trust Fund, Scholarship Secretariat and GETFUND. He advised, that such bodies must synchronize their disbursement period with academic calendar of the various educational institutions to curb the Challenge .

Students on Scholarship ,GETFUND, District Assembly Sponsorship also do not get their disbursement on time.”
