Rev. Enoch Thompson inducted as new GBUC Chancellor
The Executive President of the Ghana Baptist Convention, Rev. Enoch Nii Narh Thompson, has been inducted as Chancellor of the Ghana Baptist University College (GBUC).
He was inducted into office by the Chairman of the University Council, Prof. Michael Tagoe, at a ceremony in Kumasi last Friday.
He took over from his predecessor, Rev. Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi.
Rev Dr Ernest Adu-Gyamfi said Ghana as a developing country faced many challenges in all sectors including that of education.
He added that access to higher education in the country had been a great challenge due to the lack of modern infrastructure, accommodation, lecture rooms, and inadequate staff.
Dr. Adu-Gyamfi said that for the university to yank itself off the current challanges, the new chancellor would have to use his networks to expand accessibility.
He called on the management of the college to ensure teamwork, hard work, commitment and innovative policies to achieve its objectives.
Rev Dr Adu-Guamfi urged the management to support and assist the university going forward.
The new chancellor, Rev. Enoch Nii Narh Thompson, thanked the leadership of the university for the confidence placed on him and pledged to discharge his duty to the best of his abilities and take the university to another level.
He pledged to foster unity on all fronts and help in the expansion of the university.
The Chancellor said the university was facing financial challenges but expressed the hope that they could work together with the university council to achieve financial solvency.
Rev. Nii Narh Thompson appealed to all stakeholders to help strengthen the college while urging the government to consider ways of facilitating and helping private and mission-based tertiary institutions.
