Private university students less privileged – Chairman of the Radford University College

Chairman of the Radford University College has called for increase in loans given to students especially in private tertiary institutions.

Nana Dwomoh Sarpong explained that, the amount given is woefully inadequate for students pursuing practical courses.

He made the call at the sixth congregation and 10th matriculation of the school in Accra over the weekend.

Nana Dwomoh Sarpong bemoaned how students in public universities are given all the largess by government to the disadvantage of colleagues in private universities.

“Students in private universities are really suffering. Their inability to pay fees is also affecting our work so government should support them like they are doing to those in the public universities” he stressed.

The Radford University Chairman is convinced if given equal opportunity many students in the private university will excel to accelerate Ghana’s development.

“Most of the students who graduate are now employers because we teach them to be entrepreneurs so if given the same opportunity like their colleagues in the public institutions, there will be no unemployed graduates association” he added.

No competition

Nana Dwomoh Sarpong said the private universities were not there to compete with the public universities. “They have been there for a long time and have something we don’t have and we also have something they don’t have,” he said.

However, he emphasised that “all of us have the common goal to train our youths to be productive.” Stressing on access, Nana Dwomoh-Sarpong said the private institutions had come to play a major role.

“Until the private institutions came on board, how many people were getting access to higher education?” he questioned.

In all, 172 students were awarded Bachelor of Science and Arts Degrees. They were charged to be hungry for success and be good ambassadors of the school
