The management of University of Education, Winneba has rescheduled the planned doctorate award for the minister of education, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh until further notice.
This comes after the President of IMANI-Africa, Franklin Cudjoe criticized the management of the institute to award the minister and the speaker of parliament.
The statement published on the university’s portal on Saturday declared the postponement of the special congregation even though a specific date was not given in the communique.
The communique however added that a new date will be communicated in appropriate time.
The IMANI-Africa president last week expresses his displeasure about the honorary doctorate degree awards from the University of Education, Winneba.
According to his statement, the said award in honour of the two politicians and member of parliaments will rather tend to dishonour them as a result of the confusion rocking the institution currently.
Franklin Cudjo in correspondence to the to the Speaker of the House, stated that it is likely that the decision to honour these two ministers might be a decision coming from or promoted by part of the institutions leadership, reiterating that a very important honorary doctorate degree award of such nature should not be mired in this era of needless controversies in the university.
