The Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni has affirmed Management’s eagerness to raise responsible graduates for future development of the nation.
He refuted assertions that the youth were inexperienced and had nothing better to offer the nation but were rather hardworking and visionary. He consequently beseeched people in leadership to support and encourage young people to be excellent at what they do.
The Vice-Chancellor said this when he received a delegation from the School of Business and the Division of Publications and Communication to officially introduce Mr. Emmanuel Kodwo Amoako (one of the winners of the 2017/2018 Databank Leadership and Excellence Award) to him for making the University proud.

“It is relevant that as stakeholders and as Management of this University we do not in any way belittle such a great opportunity to let the world know that this University is leading in a number of things and it is important we let the world know that there are amazing, smart, brilliant, passionate, and genuinely kind young people who care about the good of society.
“No matter how much money we have, no matter how much great goals and visions that we have, if we do not have the right kind of human beings and most importantly dedicated, committed, genuine and passionate leadership starting from the youthful age of our dear brother, we have no future.” He said.
The Vice-Chancellor assured the awardee of Management’s support to make him shine in his exploit. Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni encouraged the award winner who also served as Students’ Representative Council (SRC) Vice-President for the 2016/2017 academic year to share his ideas with colleagues and other young people to emulate his steps.
The former SRC Vice-President expressed warm gratitude to Management, staff and lecturers at the School of Business for the overwhelming support and delightful reception.
Among Management and University staff present were the Ag. Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. James Kagya-Agyemang; Head, University Relations Office and Media, Obaapanin Adu Oforiwaa; Head, Department of Human Resource Management, Dr. Bernard B. B. Bingab; Head, Department of Marketing, Procurement and Supply Chain Management, Dr. Mawuko Dza; and Assistant Registrar, School of Business, Ms. Rebecca Tachie-Menson.
