Council Chair of the Garden City University College (GCUC), Rolland Akosah has billed the government to roll out concrete actions to update Ghana’s net broadband solutions as an issue of national security defect.
He left the call in the semi-online alliance of some 629 graduates, the vast majority of whom didn’t attend the service, except for top-notch graduating students.
Rolland Akosa insisted the COVID–19 pandemic renders Ghana without a justification to update its infrastructure to combine the team of super high-tech markets exploiting information technologies, to provide seamless digital instruction to its citizens.
He insisted:”the broadband solutions which produce digital instruction possible has to be updated within this nation. There should be no ifs or buts because if we don’t do that, a number of our pupils participating in our remote e-learning platforms can’t participate.”
Creating a need of authorities, he asked,”We aren’t requesting freebies, we’re requesting a significant infrastructure” As a tiny private college, we’re doing everything we are able to deploy the infrastructure which enables us to instruct our students and we all want the backup that comes in the Ghana government”
In a speech read on his behalf, the president of the Garden City University College, Prof. Edward Kwame Asante recounted the way the college was forced to rapidly migrate its classes unto the Moodle and Zoom platforms once all colleges were taught to close down to prevent additional spread of their COVID-19 virus one of clustered classes.
He pointed out, however, the surprising conditions have served the positive goal of exposing education institutions into the fact of mixed studies that changes the attention from overreliance on the physical classroom.
“Today it’s apparent that technology-supported training and learning isn’t only an opportunity but a requirement and the entire world today must adopt mixed learning in 1 form or another,” Prof Asante pointed out.
The Kenyasehene, Barima Fredua Agyemang challenged the pupils to become distinguished in supplying the greatest integrity of professionalism because they deploy their acquired knowledge to affect nation-building.
He cautioned that the batch to remain clear of acts of misconduct that he discovered, was the order of the afternoon when scholars gain employment in the private and public sector associations.
In most, a four hundred and four guys and two hundred and twenty five men graduated from the Business School, the Faculty of Applied Sciences, the Faculty of Humanities and Education, the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Centre for Open Distance and E-Learning together with the best pupil visiting France Nii Gyan who participates in Accounting from the Business School.
The faculty also graduated its first batch of seven Dental Therapists in the Dental Therapy class that’s the first to be provided by any University in Ghana.
A very physically challenged but brilliant pupil Solomon Evans came an outstanding student who flipped out using first-class honours at BSc Information Technology in the school of Applied Sciences.
The impending elections weren’t missing on the alliance because a Midwifery Graduate in the Faculty of Health Sciences Diana Naa Adukwei Kofie was allowed to execute her personal written patriotic songs on calmness before the December 7 elections.
