The Unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana has been described as a disgrace to the intellectual pursuit of Ghana.
Mr. Francis Xavier Sosu described the Association as such when he took his turn to deliver a speech as the Keynote Speaker on the occasion of the Osudoku Senior High Technical School’s 22nd Anniversary and 4th Speech and Prize Giving Day at Asutuare. The event was under the theme “Vocational/Technical Education – A Tool For Socio-Economic Development.”
Mr. Sosu, a lawyer believes that, technical and vocational training is what equips us with those skills to be able to play very critical roles in the development of the nation.
“If Ghana as a country can rise to the highest pinnacle of industrial revolution, we cannot do that without vocational and technical training,” he said.
The Headmistress of Osudoku Senior High Technical School, Mrs Sylvia Baaba Yankey bemoaned the lack of infrastructure in the school which is hampering smooth academic work.
The school does not have enough accommodation for students and tutors. The school needs a dining hall, an assembly hall, a science laboratory and an administrative block complex, she said.
At a colorful ceremony to also award deserving hard working students, Mrs Yankey expressed gratitude to all their stakeholders for their support, especially John and Samuel Abu Jinapor for gracing the occasion and pledging to assist the school get its share of the projects earmarked for schools under the Better Ghana Agenda.
She took the opportunity to encourage students to strive hard to acquire the knowledge and skills that are being taught because they will need it in future.
The school recorded 100% pass in the 2012 WASSCE.
The old students pledged to play a key role in organising the 25th Anniversary.
The occasion was graced by dignitaries including Nene Ablor, the Chief of Asutuare.
