Ghana ministry of education has erupted another hullabaloo opening pundits box for concern citizens to share their view.
The Minister for Education head by Matthew Opoku Prempeh has asserted that government is considering reducing the time spent on pursuing undergraduate degree program at universities from 4 years to 3 years.
Education minister Hon.Matthew O. Prempeh, speaking at the 2019 Danquah Institute Leadership lecture under the theme: “World Class Education and Imperative for the Next Generation of Leaders,” Matthew Opoku Prempeh said he gathered an information that, the University of Ghana originally ran three-year-long degree programs with the first year dedicated to general studies whose exams are non-scoring while the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology also take three years.
“Because we have learnt [from] our history, they took two years in doing a degree in the University of Ghana. KNUST took three years because at the University of Ghana, they had a first university exam that was non-scoring and still came out with PhDs,” the minister explained.
Honourable Matthew Prempeh said, countries all over the world, it takes three years to complete undergraduate degree program, it is very unfortunate that our country happens to be part of the few countries instigating undergraduates to enroll for four years to attain a degree.
“Everywhere in the world, undergrad is three years not four years, why should we spend four years doing undergrad? We will sit down with the university lecturers and challenge them, because Ghana is not an island. Government is committed at enhancing technical and vocational education as it has outlined in its campaign manifesto.

Canada’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange, QuadrigaCX is battling to retrieve $190 million belonging to 115,000 clients.
The owner who is the only one who knew the password to access the amount went to the grave with the password.
The founder Gerald Cotten, 30 years of age died of complications from Crohn’s disease while doing philanthropic work in India in early December, according to a post on QuadrigaCX’s Facebook page.
The company didn’t announce Cotten’s death until more than a month after he died. Then, as customers panicked and tried to withdraw their funds, QuadrigaCX’s website went down and the company went off the grid. For security purposes, very little cryptocurrency was stored in the hot wallet, according to an affidavit by Cotten’s widow, Jennifer Robertson.
Cotten’s laptop was encrypted, and Robertson and the expert she hired have been unable to access any of its contents, Robertson’s affidavit said. It said the company had no corporate bank accounts and used third-party services to manage payments and withdrawals.
QuadrigaCX’s board of directors wrote in a Thursday letter to customers ” “For the past weeks, we have worked extensively to address our liquidity issues, which include attempting to locate and secure our very significant cryptocurrency reserves held in cold wallets, and that are required to satisfy customer cryptocurrency balances on deposit, as well as sourcing a financial institution to accept the bank drafts that are to be transferred to us, Unfortunately, these efforts have not been successful”.
The mysterious circumstances surrounding Cotten’s death have spawned many conspiracy theories, most of the aggrieved customers suggested that Cotten is faking his death as part of an exit scam.
