The State Minister for Tertiary Education in Ghana, Professor Kwesi Yankah, recently emphasized the strong commitment of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to collaborate closely with the private sector to alleviate the various challenges facing the educational sector. This pledge is particularly significant in light of the growing difficulties encountered by private universities. These institutions are grappling with an array of issues, ranging from the struggle to repay loans to being overwhelmed by onerous tax burdens. Such fiscal pressures are not only hindering their operations but are also pushing some of these universities to the brink of collapse.

In his address, Professor Yankah reassured that the existing affiliation system in Ghanaian higher education, which has long been a subject of debate and concern, is on the cusp of transformation. Under the administration of President Nana Addo Danquah-Akuffo, this system is set to become obsolete, marking a significant shift in the educational landscape of the country. This change is seen as a crucial step in accelerating the role of the private sector in driving innovation and in securing its central and pivotal role in the nation's development.

Furthermore, Professor Yankah disclosed ongoing efforts by the Ministry of Education to redefine certain academic grading standards in collaboration with the National Council for Tertiary Education. A key focus of this initiative is the reevaluation of grades like D7, particularly in the context of humanities admissions. The goal is to provide greater opportunities and hope to applicants whose potential may be overlooked due to their mathematics grades, thereby broadening access to higher education for a more diverse range of students.

In his concluding remarks, Professor Yankah offered words of encouragement to the graduating students. He emphasized that the virtues of diligence, determination, humility, and hard work are fundamental to achieving success. His message underscored the belief that these qualities, when earnestly applied, can lead to remarkable accomplishments and contribute significantly to both personal growth and societal advancement.
