The Department of Biochemistry of University of Cape Coast [UCC] has held a seminar on biosensors for point of need biomedical applications and 3D functional cardiac tissue models for regenerative medicine.

The speaker at the seminar, Dr. Prosper Kanyong, a former student of UCC and now a researcher with the Oxford Impedence Diagnostics of the University of Oxford in U.K, said biosensors are important in the scientific development of every nation due to its analytical properties in finding solutions to scientific problems.

The much-talked about Nduom School of Business & Technology [NSB&T] sited at Ayensudo in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem (KEEA) Municipality in the Central Region has received its accreditation from the Ghana National Acreditation Board [NAB] to admit prospective students.

This was revealed by the 2016 Presidential candidate of the Progressive People's Party [PPP] and Chairperson of Groupe Nduom Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom in a Facebook post some hours ago.

The Nduom School of Business & Technology [NSB&T] sits on a 100-acre land and has lecture halls, an administration block, a cafeteria, a library and an auditorium which was officially opened on December 6, 2016.

Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto

The Ministry of Food and Agriculture has announced that it will employ over 4, 000 graduates from agricultural colleges in the country in 2018.

The Ministry also announced that it had tabled the requests from the students for the restoration of their allowances before Cabinet.

The announcement was made following agitations from students of five of the colleges, who besieged the premises of the Agric Ministry in Accra on Wednesday, demanding the immediate release of their allowances.

The Agric Minister, Owusu Afriyie Akoto, who addressed the crowd, said earlier that “cabinet has its own procedure for considering such demands, and I can assure you that your demand is seriously being considered.”

Degree trainee nurses across the country are calling for an extension of the nurses and midwives training allowance to them. They argue that with a structure similar to that of their colleagues at the training colleges, enjoying the restored allowance is in order.

This appeal comes in the wake of the restoration of the nurses and midwives trainee allowance which was scrapped by the erstwhile Mahama Led National Democratic Congress [NDC] government.
