The University of Ghana Council has appointed Professor Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, as the Acting Vice-Chancellor of the University.

She takes over from Vice-Chancellor Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu.

Prof. Appiah Amfo’s appointment as Acting Vice-Chancellor takes effect from August 1, 2021.

She will be acting as the Vice-Chancellor of the University until the appointment of the substantive Vice-Chancellor.

Until her appointment, Prof. Appiah Amfo was the Pro-Vice-Chancellor with responsibility for Academic and Student Affairs of the University, a position she assumed on November 1, 2019.

According to a press statement signed by the University’s Registrar, Mercy Haizel-Ashia, the decision was taken after the inauguration of the new Council.

The Council acted in accordance with, “Section 10(2)(b) of the University of Ghana Act, 2010 (Act 806) and section 6(3) of the University of Ghana Statutes,” the statement said.

Her appointment in an acting position was necessitated by the inability of the University to complete processes for the selection of a substantive replacement for the outgoing Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu.

If confirmed, the 49-year old Professor of Linguistics will not only become the first female to assume the role in the nation’s premier university. She will also be the youngest ever to achieve the feat.

With the Chancellor, Registrar and Council Chair of the university all being females, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo completes a quartet of an all-female leadership of the university.

In 2020, Prof. Rita Dickson was appointed as Vice-Chancellor of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, making her the second female to be appointed to the position in a public university after the University of Cape Coast’s Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang.
