Asogli State Chiefs reject proposal to rename Ho Technical University after Dr. Ephriam Amu. Stay updated on the latest developments in education.

The Chiefs of the Asogli State strongly objected to the government’s suggestion of renaming Ho Technical University after Dr. Ephriam Amu. This decision, which was first revealed in February 2018, has faced criticism from the Traditional Council because key stakeholders were not consulted.

In a press conference on Monday, April 22, 2024, the council expressed profound disappointment with both the government and the university’s governing council for moving forward with the renaming without involving major stakeholders, such as the Asogli State Council, who are the guardians of the land.

The Asogli State Council characterized the decision as regrettable, ill-conceived, and disrespectful, highlighting its failure to take into account the views of those directly impacted.

Togbe Adzi Lakle Howusu XII, speaking on behalf of the Asogli State Council, reiterated their firm stance against the renaming, stressing that it not only lacks justification but also undermines the university’s identity and heritage.

“Our attention has once again been drawn to attempts by authorities of the Ho Technical University and the government to rename the institute to Dr. Ephraim Amu Technical Institute. The Asogli State Council wishes to reaffirm our strong opposition to the government’s decision to rename the university without consulting the chiefs and people of Ho.

“The Asogli State Council views the decision to rename the institution without due consultation as an unfortunate, misplaced and disrespectful decision.”
