The National Council for Tertiary Education (NCTE) and the National Accreditation Board (NAB) have been merged under the new Education Regulatory Bodies Act 2020 (Act 1023).

The Act, which was given a Presidential Assent on August 21, 2020, provides for the establishment of the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC).

Governing Board

A statement signed and issued by the Director-General of the GTEC, Professor Mohammed Salifu, explained that, pursuant to the establishment of the commission, its governing board was inaugurated by the Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, on November 25, 2020.

The board has Professor Kwame Boafo-Arthur as Chairman with Prof. Salifu as the Director-General.

The statement, therefore, advised the public to “kindly take note of the development and ensure that all transactions, correspondence or other business dealings with the now defunct NTCE and NAB are addressed to the Director-General of the commission”.
