The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) Chapter of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has congratulated the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, on his appointment as Vice-Chancellor of the University.

The President of UTAG-UCC, Prof. Kwame Osei Kwarteng, who led a 3-member delegation, indicated the readiness of the Association to support the Vice-Chancellor during his 4-year mandate.

Prof. Kwarteng appealed to the Vice-Chancellor to address concerns of UTAG with dispatch.

Some of the concerns raised by the president bothered on promotion of Assistant Lecturers and other issues at some departments and colleges which affect members negatively.

Prof. Kwarteng assured the Vice-Chancellor that UTAG would support him to achieve his vision.

For his part, Prof. Ampiah thanked the leadership of UTAG for the visit and assured them of his unalloyed commitment in addressing all the problems raised by the Association.

The Vice-Chancellor, however, appealed to the members of UTAG to exercise maximum restraint as he tackled their concerns and that of others holistically.

He said, “I will deal with your matters because they’re matters of concern {to me} and they are matters if we don’t deal with them, then we’ll destroy this University,“

“All the changes will happen at the same time, so that the shock will be received once and that ends it,” said Prof. Ampiah.

The meeting was attended by the Registrar, Mr. John Kofi Nyan; the Vice-President of UTAG-UCC, Dr. Eric Opoku; Secretary of UTAG-UCC, Dr. Bert Boadu-Kusi; Secretary to the Vice-Chancellor, Mrs. Georgina Asi Owusu and the Junior Assistant Registrar of the Directorate of Public Affairs, Mr. Felix Adu Poku.
