President Akufo-Addo indicated that Pentecost University and the All Nations University have met the stringent requirements under regulation 20, clause 2, of the tertiary institutions regulations, 2010, LI 1984, “which enjoins the board to consider the following before a charter is granted; a. The length of period which shall not be less than ten (10) years within which the applicant has successfully operated under the supervision of a mentoring institution, b. The governance structure of the applicant, c. The quality if teaching, research, academic staff and work of the applicant, d. The financial, material and teaching facilities and resources at the disposal of or owned by the applicant and e. Other factors that the board determined to be appropriate”.

“The Universities should, therefore, bear in mind that they will be closely monitored especially in the areas of concern outlined by the National Accreditation Board” President Akufo-Addo said.

“As chartered institutions, i urge them to continue to improve and introduce more innovative programmes and course that will equip their students with the requisite skills and competencies needed to develop our country and transform progressively the economy” the President added.
