A former Chaplain for USA Military Hospital, Chaplain and General Secretary of Asanteman Association of Georgia - Atlanta, Very Reverend Jubilant Boakye Danquah aka Rev. J.B Danquah has expressed worry on how public universities in the country have failed to be innovative enough to come out with their own initiatives to produce necessities.
The Missionary and a Retired Senior Methodist Minister said it's very sad these public universities can't even provide production units where they can show to the public their own produced items such as vaccines to fight covid-19, fufu pounding machine etc.
He revealed that it's high time stakeholders took upon themselves to structure "our educational system to suit innovative skills after course completion."
He however made a passionate appeal to the minister of education to come out with a curriculum that will help these universities to train productive graduates for the country.
He made this observation when the Methodist Church Ghana honoured him for his 40 years of dedication in the Service as a minister alongside his 70th birthday at the Down well Methodist, Krofrom.
He also advised all churches in the country to make human investments especially in the field of education in the upcoming young generation of the church who are future leaders by providing them quality education.
Moreover, the Reverend minister urged the youth to stay away from the attitude of becoming rich overnight and concentrate on their education.
He urged the young generation to follow the life's procedure through which success may come their way instead of using dubious means to make money overnight. He said the only way through which this can be achieved is by learning how to work hard etc.
