The Presidential Charter has been handed over to us. We are now Methodist University Ghana (MUG).
Our institution has received a Presidential Charter to become autonomous, making it a full-fledged University. This means that our institution is fully matured to be able to award its own degrees.
His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo signed and presented the certificate of Charter to the university on Tuesday, 30th August 2022 in a short presentation ceremony at the Jubilee House in Accra.
The Most Rev. Titus Kofi Awortwi – Pratt on behalf of the Presiding Bishop of The Methodist Church Ghana received the Certificate of Charter from the President of Ghana.
In attendance were officials from The Methodist Church Ghana, some members of the University Council, some management members of the University, Lay President, Mr. William Orleans Oduro Esq., Administrative Bishop, Rt. Rev. Michael Bossman, Northern Accra Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Prof. Edusa-Eyison, Very Rev. Mrs. Naana Dannyame, Very. Rev. Prof. John DK Ekem, Acting President of the University, Prof. Ato Essuman, Founding Dean of the Faculty of Education and Entrepreneurship of the University, Prof. Adom Frimpong, Mrs. Eunice Ametor Williams, Rev.. Ama Afo Blay, Mr. Okyere Boateng, Registrar of the University, Mr. Joseph Dzathor, Interim Alumni President of the University, and Mr. Teddy Amponsah Asamoah, SRC President.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, President Nana Addo Dankwa urged all three universities to continue to improve and introduce more innovative programmes that will equip students with the requisite skills needed for national development. He advised each university to carve a niche area to distinguish them from the others.
As we were told this morning at the Wednesday forenoon divine service, that a team of lions roars together, let us roar together as a team to move MUG forward in its new status.
This is to the Glory of God. Congratulations to us all.
