7th Congregation

 
 
The 7th graduation ceremony and the 10th year anniversary which was on the theme ‘Changes and challenges of Private Tertiary Institution: The Profit side of Learning’.
 

The University which commenced operation in July 2005 is affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana.

Founder and chancellor of the GCUC, Mr Albert Acquah said, the contribution of the University clearly showed it belonged to the community and not for individual benefit.
 
He indicated that the GCUC was building a great academic institution that would train good citizens with great work ethics to make them nation builders for the next generation.
“After 10 years of inception, Garden City University College can boast of 16 accredited programs. There are about 145 full and part time faculty members and about 80 administrative support staff. The University has graduated over 3100 of its students who have been absorbed in the entire fabric of society,” he added.
 
Challenges
 
Mr Acquah said, the GCUC since its inception has encountered a number of challenges which were managed with all the attention deserved.
 
The major challenge impeding the progress of the school, he noted was the deplorable nature of the Kenyasi-Antoa roads.
 
He is therefore appealing to Government to expedite work to fix the roads to enhance economic growth within the catchment area of the University and the nation as a whole.
 
He further said, Management was determined to move ahead in spite of the above mentioned challenges.
 
A sod was also cut for the opening of a state-of-the-art facility for a proposed Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Dental Therapy program, whose accreditation was still underway.
 
The University has also completed a business plan for the construction of a 200-bed capacity hospital to facilitate a close monitoring and training of the Allied Health students.
 
The hospital when completed would also cater for the health needs of residents in Kenyasi and its environs.
 
In attendance were the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Ashanti Regional Minister Peter Anarfi Mensah, Pro Vice Chancellor of the KNUST, Professor Samuel Nii Odai, former chief executive of Asante Kotoko Dr. K.K. Sarpong and other invited guest.

The Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has urged Government to fix the Kenyasi-Antoa road in the Kwabre East District in the Ashanti Region.

He expressed concerns about the deplorable nature of the stretch, when he used it to the Garden City University College (GCUC) to attend the University`s 7th congregation ceremony.

The deplorable nature of the Kenyasi-Antoa road has become a major worry to commuters and other road users in the area.

Angry residents from Duase, Kenyasi and Abirem resorted to a massive demonstration to compel authorities fix the road.

The protest dominated discussions not only on media platforms but also on the floor of parliament where the Inspector General of Police (IGP) was summoned to respond to questions why his men injured some demonstrators when they fired gun shots and released tear gas to disperse them.

Otumfuo Osei Tutu II therefore tasked Government to expedite efforts in the construction of the road to make transport convenient and safe for road users.

“Whilst I was driving to this place, I realized the dangers on the roads. And I would entreat and urge the Regional Minister to make the road motorable for me,” he urged.

Founder and Chancellor of the Garden City University College, Mr Albert Acquah re-echoed the concerns of the King and also appealed to Government to fix the road.

Ashanti Regional Minister, Peter Anarfi Mensah, has appealed to graduates within tertiary institutions to accept National Service postings to rural areas.

This is to enable the youth contribute their quota to national development, especially where needed.

He said the practice where graduates rejected National Service postings to remote areas was not good for national development.

The Minister revealed that his office was inundated with a number of requests from some graduates to get his intervention in changing their postings to suit their choices.

Mr Anarfi Mensah made the appeal at the 7th congregation of the Garden City University College (GCUC) at Kenyasi in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

He said the essence of the National Service assignment was to make the year Service available to all graduates at their various Cities and Regions.

“I would like to appeal to our graduands who for one reason or the other have the opportunity to undertake their National Service assignment. My office is inundated with several requests calling for changes of their postings. So I would appeal to such persons to give recognition to where ever they were posted to,” he affirmed.

He also urged graduates to make voluntary request at the National Service Secretariat to be posted to remote areas so they could equip themselves to the challenges of the time.

He however encourages all graduates to take up the challenge of serving the nation with patriotism.

Mr Anarfi further said, the recent development where the National Accreditation Board (NAB) ordered the closure of some private Universities for lack of accreditation could have been avoided if such institutions cooperated with the National Council for Tertiary Education and the NAB to stick to the norms that guided the provision of tertiary education in the country.

Government he added was committed to ensuring quality Education was made accessible to all Ghanaians and was therefore making huge investments in the sector.

The Minister also challenged tertiary institutions across the country to adopt innovative approaches to teaching and learning to enhance national development.
