As a Commonwealth Scholar, he attained his PhD in Education from Keele University, England.
Dr. Ibrahim Gunu is widely respected for his dispassionate contribution to education matters in Ghana and beyond.
On 18th September 2020, he underscored the need for government to reopen basic schools and provided appropriate mechanism for safe school reopening and continuation process.
He explained in his submissions that, “We need to know that children cannot wait for that long. Children learn less, and lose the habit of learning.”
“In some parts of Ghana if schools are not reopened, students may give up their studies and start work or get married. Children are more likely going to suffer abuse, malnutrition and poor mental health, ” he bemoaned.
Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim Gunu has been actively involved in teaching and research in UDS from 2009 up to date.
