The Ghana Telecom University bill will be laid before parliament in the first quarter of 2019 to ensure the autonomy of the institution, Minister of Communication Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has said.
Mrs Owusu-Ekuful was speaking to Accra-based Citi FM after the swearing in ceremony of an interim government council for the GTUC on Friday, 16 November 2018 in Accra.
The minister said: “I’m working with the Minister of Education, once we complete that process the bill is going to go through parliament hopefully early next year.
“It’s a critical organisation for the government’s digital agenda. We do need trained skilled manpower with the right skills to assist the government and the nation itself to transit from this informal economy to a digital economy.”
