Accra, July 22, GNA –
Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana,
has expressed happiness with news of the inauguration of councils for public
universities to ensure the progress of the institutions.

He said: “The absence
of a Council has meant that many decisions and initiatives at the University
have had to be placed on hold.

“I look forward
to the inauguration of the new Council, and to working with members to move the
University forward.”

Prof. Owusu said this
during the University of Ghana’s College of Humanities Undergraduate
Congregation at the weekend.

He said 3,858 students
were to graduate on Friday and Saturday at various levels from all the four
Colleges of the University of Ghana.      

This is made up of
1,148 at the Postgraduate, 2,449 at the Bachelor, and 261 at the Diploma levels
respectively.

Prof Owusu challenged
the graduating students to raise the bar of excellence and to be team players
wherever they find themselves.

Mr Kojo Addo-Kufuor,
the Chief Operating Officer, and co-founder of Ghana Home Loans, urged the
graduates to set ambitious goals as they follow their passion to fulfill their
desired purpose in life.

He advised them to
start saving towards their pension and not to wait until they are nearing the
retirement age.

Mr Addo-Kufuor, who
was the guest speaker at the event, told the graduates to consider every job
opportunity as an entry point into their desired career.

Mr David Agyeman-Duah,
the Valedictorian, urged his colleague graduates to go into the world and take
up entrepreneurship.
