Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has announced an education support package for the contestants that clinched a victory for Prempeh College in the just ended 2017 National Maths and Science Quiz.

Details of the offer are unknown but the support package will take effect when the two students reach the tertiary level.

Four teachers who played key roles in the success story will also receive GH¢5,000 from the Asantehene for their effort.

Dr Wilfred K. Anim-Odame, the Executive Secretary of the Lands Commission has urged graduates of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to uphold the virtues of integrity and honesty as well as work hard at all times.

“Be mindful that, life in a very competitive job market means, you have to recognise the need for hard work. More importantly, you have to uphold the virtues of integrity and honesty at all times.

“And remember not to compromise on commitment to excellence in all your endeavours. No matter how hard you wish, the tooth fairy is not going to come while you are sleeping and replace failure with success. Begin to take responsibility for your life,” he said.

The Winneba High Court on Monday threw out a motion filed by the University of Education Winneba (UEW), challenging the capacity of Mr Supi Kofi Kwayera who is challenging the legality of the University’s Governing Council in the same court.

Mr Kwayera is challenging the legality of the Governing Council of the university arguing that its tenure expired in 2013.

The university filed a motion arguing that Mr Kwayera had no capacity to meddle in the affairs of the school but on Monday, the court dismissed the university’s motion challenging the capacity of Mr Kwayera.
