The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Rev. Professor Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, has called for the restructuring of the curriculum of Ghanaian universities to ensure that students use their initiative to create jobs for themselves on completion of their respective courses of study.

He said any new curriculum should hinge on entrepreneurship, irrespective of the course a student offered.

The Moderator, who made the call at the 43rd Congregation of the Christian Service University College in Kumasi, said it was imperative that students completed their tertiary education with job plans on hand, instead of waiting for employment.

He said the ‘new era’, if adopted, should be based on science and technology, with entrepreneurship and values leading the charge, adding that “an educated person without good values is more dangerous than an illiterate”.

Graduating students

A total of 548 students, comprising 70 postgraduates and 461 undergraduates, received their certificates of graduation.

Out of the number, 222 (40.5) per cent were females.

Support

The Rev. Prof. Mante said private universities contributed to shaping Ghana’s education and development, for which reason the government needed to support them.

He suggested that the government could provide scholarships for students who could not make it to the public universities to enable them to pursue their studies in any of the private universities.
