A Lecturer at the Department of Anthropology and Sociology of the University of Cape Coast [UCC], Dr. Brempong Osei-Tutu has questioned society why the act of cooking has become the responsibility of the woman and left the man out of this shared responsibility.

In an exclusive interview with ATL FM NEWS, Dr. Brempong stated that food is paramount to our health and should not be left in the hands of the woman alone but must involve the man.

The Minister of State in Charge of Tertiary Education, Prof. Kwesi Yankah says the arrangement for students of Colleges of Education in Ghana to be awarded degrees will be rolled out with new entrants of the Colleges.

Government says all the 43 Public Colleges of Education in the country will be turned into satellite campuses of public universities. Colleges of Education will therefore be degree awarding Institutions.

The colleges will be shared among the public universities which offer education programmes. The idea is that all teachers in Ghana are trained as graduates.

The Academic Board of the University of Cape Coast [UCC] has approved a proposal re-designating and modifying the rank of research assistants in the university.

The re-designation will mean that there will be no permanent appointment of research assistants. Persons already appointed as research assistants with first degrees will be re-designated to Teaching Assistants while those with Masters Degrees will be re designated to Teaching Associates.

The Project Manager of the USAID/UCC Coastal Management Capacity Building Support, Prof. Denis W. Aheto, has said fish is the most widely traded agricultural commodity in the world as compared to other products in the agricultural value chain.

“It is extremely important to put on record that fish, over the last couple of years, is the most heavily traded agricultural commodity compared to meat sources, tobacco, tea, cocoa, banana, sugar, among others”, he said. The Project Manager, consequently, appealed to USAID to focus more on fisheries rather than the agricultural food value chain.

Prof. Aheto was addressing a delegation from USAID-Ghana, led by its new Mission Director, Ms. Sharon Cromer, at a workshop as part of her day’s visit to see at first-hand the progress of the Project in the University.
