“This morning, we have called you to remind you of your responsibilities and to assure you that just as we take good care of you and make all the necessary sacrifices to ensure that you are well taken care of, I will also require of you to do your part as security guards and workers of this great University,” Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni stated.

The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Andy Ofori-Birikorang admonished the security personnel to put the interest of the University first in order to safeguard their job. “Do everything to protect your job by being loyal to the institution that has given you the job and never take things for granted with the view that whether you work assiduously or not, your job is secured and you will be paid at the end of the month.”

The Registrar, Surv. Paul Osei-Barima Esq., advised the security personnel to be proud of their profession. He pointed out some qualities of a professional security person. “Security means loyalty, dedication, allegiance, trustworthiness and respect for authority.”
