The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has reached a significant milestone by inaugurating its new national secretariat at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).
The generous donation of office space by UPSA, led by Vice-Chancellor Professor Abednego F. O. Amartey, marks a crucial step in UTAG’s ongoing efforts to enhance the welfare and effectiveness of lecturers in Ghana.
Situated within the premises of the Nii Amon Kotei Hostel, the strategically located office offers UTAG members a central and accessible hub for their activities.
This development is expected to streamline coordination among UTAG members and provide a resource center for professional development.
During the inspection of the facility, National UTAG President Professor Solomon Nunoo, along with Dr. Mohammed Sadat, UTAG-UPSA president, and the newly elected national President of UTAG, Professor Mahamoud Akudugu, expressed their delight with the new offices.
Professor Nunoo highlighted the profound impact the national secretariat would have on the association’s operations.
He emphasized that the new office complex would improve coordination, facilitate effective program planning and execution, and serve as a valuable resource center for members.
“UTAG members can now access administrative services more conveniently, strengthening the support network within the association,” Professor Nunoo remarked. He also expressed gratitude to UPSA and Vice-Chancellor Okoe Amartey for their generous support.
Acting Director of the UPSA Business Development Centre, Mr. Robert Gyeke-Darko, who handed over the facility to the UTAG executives, noted that this gesture aligns with UPSA’s tradition of hosting and supporting various professional associations on its campus.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by prominent figures, including the newly elected National President of UTAG, Professor Mahamoud Akudugu, and other UTAG-UPSA officials.
The event signifies a momentous occasion for UTAG and its members, marking a new chapter in their commitment to advancing higher education in Ghana.
