A proposal by the PRO VC of UCC for government to restrict the use of social media during working hours has sparked a nationwide controversy with some raging over the suggestion.
The Government of Ghana and other major stakeholders in the fishing industry may have to adopt a holistic approach in solving the numerous problems bedeviling fishermen in the country.
These problems ranging from illegal methods of fishing and over capacity as a result of influx of Chinese industrial vessels in Ghana’s territorial waters, government is importing about 60 percent of fish stock to feed the ever growing demand of fish by its people.
The path to solving the problem has always been a banter between government and fishermen.
The Board Chair of the Campus Broadcasting Services [CBS], Prof. Peter Kojo Grant has in his new year message called on the general public to give the necessary support to ATL FM as the station prepares to bring to the general public the University’s TV Station, TV UCC.
It will be recalled that at the occupation of the Campus Broadcasting Centre facility in 2016, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Prof Ghartey Ampiah through Prof Magnus Wilmot hinted that the TV was to begin operation in the coming months.
The Vice Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast, Professor Joseph Ghartey Ampiah says it is becoming increasingly evident that more and more students are opting for the masters’ programme in the distance education because of its convenience and suitability for the working class.
He is therefore urging the College of Distance Education [CoDE] to double its efforts at making technology functional in the delivery of lectures so that the university’s clients could sit in the comfort of their homes and obtain their degrees.
He says by this the university would have rendered a great service to many disadvantaged people who yearn to acquire high academic qualifications.
