The University of Education, Winneba, has suspended its planned and publicised congregation for 2018/19 graduands has been postponed indefinitely.
The decision comes after government failed to constitute a new governing council to supervise the ceremony following the expiration of the tenure of the existing one last month.
In a statement, the University said: “Due to prevailing circumstances beyond our 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 has been postponed indefinitely. New dates for the Congregation shall be announced as soon as the Governing Council is reconstituted for the University”.
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 corespondent 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.
