Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has been honoured by the leadership of the Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG), at a special ceremony in Accra.

He was honoured for his contributions towards improving the standard of technical education in the country as well as improving the welfare of members of TUTAG.

The Education Minister was presented with a citation, a plaque, and a smock.

The President of TUTAG, Dr Michael Akurugu Brigandi, speaking at the ceremony said, the presentation was due to the fulfillment of promises made by the Minister as soon as he was sworn into office as the Minister for Education.

These promises, he said included, an improvement in their conditions of service, scheme of service, payment of research allowance arrears and the migration of Bolgatanga and Wa branches of the group onto the Tertiary Education Workers salary structure.

The President recounted how when the members of TUTAG declared a strike action this year, Dr Adutwum met them and promised to fulfill his promise of resolving all their needs, which he said has been done.

“To show appreciation to him for fulfilling his promises to the group, we are so happy that we feel the whole world should know about it,” Dr Akurugu Brigandi said.

On his part, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, thanked the leadership of TUTAG for the gesture and pledged to continue working hard for the good of the country.

He said, “I was appointed to promote the development of education so there is no way I would do anything contrary to the purpose of my appointment”.

The Education Minister pledged to continue working very hard to support the development of education at all levels in the country to promote the transformation agenda of the country.
