The Director General of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT), Dr. John Ofori – Tenkorang has urged students of University of Cape Coast to put their ideas into great innovations and business while studying in school.

Citing world-renowned individuals such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Albert Einstein among others who made great innovations and major successes during their time as students, Dr. Ofori- Tenkorang prompted the students of their bright talents which according to him can be turned to great innovations.

The Director of Quality Assurance and Academic Planning at the Cape Coast Technical University, Rev H.A Ndebugri says universities need to design innovative programmes that turn ideas into products for national development.

According to him, Ghana has over the years produced more people to fit into white colour jobs than producing people who are innovative to start their own business.

Senior staff Association of University of Cape Coast (SSA-UCC) has officially held a ceremony to sendoff its chairperson, Mr. Daniel Arthur Egyir and hand over the mantle to the vice, Mr. Charles Amos Odoom.

The transfer of power became necessary due to Mr. Egyir‘s promotion to become a member of the Ghana Association of University Administrators (GAUA).

Barclays Bank Ghana Limited has launched its Barclays Tertiary Awards at a ceremony held at the University.

The award seeks to provide financial support in the form of scholarships to deserving students to go through their tertiary education without any financial difficulty. It was for this reason that Barclays after a thorough selection procedure selected 20 students based on their academic performances. They were given a laptop computer each to facilitate their academic work.

Explaining the rationale behind the awards, the Head of Communications of the Bank, Mr. Cyril Nai said time was changing very fast, therefore, there was the need for students to get training that would help them to achieve their aims in order to help in nation building.

Researchers in Africa have been urged to collaborate and lead research into issues that affect the lives of people on the continent.

This call was made at a roundtable discussion during the closing ceremony of the two-week International PhD Summer School which was hosted by the Institute for Development Studies.

Making a presentation at the function, a former Director of the Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana, Prof. Akosua Adomako Ampofo, said the goal of research was to make a difference in the society so African Researchers should be bold and open minded to new ideas that would enhance their research capabilities on issues affecting the continent.

The Institute for Development Studies (IDS) in collaboration with the Youth Inclusive Entrepreneurial Development Initiative for Employment (YIEDIE) is organising a five-day training for trainers course on campus.

The programme which is aimed at providing participants with skills to train the youth and service providers across the value chain. It will equip them to also train young women and men in the technical construction skills and how to start and grow small businesses.

Opening the programme, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. George K. T. Oduro, said the programme was particularly important in the context of the many unemployed, underemployed, out of school and people living on the minimal expected standard of Two Dollars per day in Ghana. He said a key contribution to impacting the development of Ghana was through such initiatives as YIEDIE that is estimating to reach about 24, 000 youth with training in technical, life and entrepreneurial skills leading to employment.

The Ashanti Regional Education Directorate has interdicted the headmaster of the Tweneboah Koduah Senior High School, Francis Badu Agyare, following allegations of sexual misconduct involving three female students.

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed an application by former Deputy Attorney General, Dominic Ayine seeking to file additional arguments to the case in which he is challenging the eligibility and appointment of Martin Amidu as the Special Prosecutor.

According to Dr Ayine, Mr Amidu's age of 66 does not make him eligible for the position.

Dr Ayine is arguing that by a true and proper interpretation of Articles 190(1)(d), 199(1), 199(4), and 295 of the 1992 Constitution, the retirement age of all holders of public offices created pursuant to Article 190 (1)(d) is sixty (60) years, anyhow not beyond sixty-five (65) years.

The Ghana Health Service says the health practitioner who administered the injections that are suspected to have led to three deaths at the New Senchi Health Center in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region, had been operating illegally.

Last year, import exemptions granted to foreign companies and other institutions rose by 15.5 per cent to GH¢2.6 billion.

The rise in exemptions from GH¢2.3 billion in 2016 to last year’s figure brings to the fore the country’s inability to control the amount of tax freebies granted to foreign firms in spite of the government’s pledges to help curb it.

The 2017 provisional outturn for import exemptions also means that the government missed its import exemptions target of GH¢1.3 billion by 100 per cent.
