The chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), who also chairs the GETFund, Dr Kwabena Adjei, has challenged authorities of universities to stamp out unproductive acts becoming characteristic of some students, which in the end, affects national development.
Dr Kwabena Adjei was addressing the third matriculation ceremony of the Radford University College, here in Accra at the weekend.
Dr Adjei said the GETFund was committed to improving infrastructure in schools in order to improve the country’s human resource base.
He also challenged students to go beyond the comfort of the lecture room and become self-dependent.
The college admitted 362 fresh students for the 2011/2012 academic year.
The Faculty of Business Science enrolled 121 students. Eighty-eight students were enrolled at the Faculty of Fine Arts; another 48 at the Faculty of Applied Sciences and 105 students for certificate programmes.
The president of Radford University College, Professor Ralph Asabere, advised the freshers to take advantage of the opportunity and equip themselves with entrepreneurial skills.
Professor Ralph Asabere advised students to be innovative in finding solutions to challenges that might confront them during and after school, and thereby make good their entrepreneurial training.
The president of the Pan African Christian University College in the Central Region, Bishop David Ofori Adu, advised students to shun immoral societal values.
