The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS), has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Union and the Titi-Ofei Centre of the Accra Business School, towards the training of Ghana student leaders across the country.
The agreement, which was reached on Thursday, 9th January, 2020, is expected to establish a congenial framework that will hone the potentials of Ghanaian student leaders and refine their abilities to become distinguished stewards in the now, and in the near future.
Per the terms of the agreement reached, it is expected that over the next seven years, the Gideon Titi-Ofei Centre of the Accra Business School, will man the task of offering Ghanaian student leaders an avenue to develop through arranged mentorship sessions, leadership boots camps, capacity building seminars and a host of other leadership grooming mechanisms.
Such activities, per the terms of the signed memorandum will be serviced at absolutely no charge for participating student leaders. Additionally, participants are also expected to benefit from free accommodation, learning resources and certificates at the end of the training sessions.
Speaking at the august ceremony held at the Accra Business School, the President of the Accra Business School and leader of the Pleasant Palace Church, Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei, stressed on the need for the emergence of a new crop of Ghanaian student and youth leaders, who regard leadership as an endeavour of service, integrity, empathy and genuineness. He was therefore hopeful that the revamped partnership between the National Union of Ghana Students and the Accra Business School, will go a long way to achieve this objective.
Mr. Isaac Hyde, who signed on behalf of the Union also expressed his gratitude to the Accra Business School, for undertaking to help better the lot of Ghanaian student leaders; adding that, the Union will also do well to ensure a smooth execution of the agreement.
According to him, the first tranche of this initiative will commence in February, when school formally resumes across the various member institutions. The initiative is expected to be facilitated with assistance from Mr. Courage Nobi, a former General Secretary of the Union, and the cochairman of the 2019 NUGS Reform Committee.
The agreement was witnessed on behalf of the National Union of Ghana Students, by the NUGS Secretary, Divine Edem Kwadzodeh, who was in attendance alongside other executives of the Union, together with some top management officials of the Accra Business School.
Meanwhile, the executives of the National Union of Ghana Students have been involved in a four day residential meeting at the Alexander Adum Kwapong Hall, to plan the Union’s path, and address other pertinent concerns, relative to the affairs of the Union. The meeting, which begun on Monday, 6th January, 2020 ended on a successful note on Thursday, 9th January, 2020.
