  • Description

    TWO DAY TALKS ON 'THE EMPLOYMENT OF GRADUATES IN LAND ECONOMY' OPENED ON FRIDAY (9 MAY) AT GHANA'S STATE HOUSE IN ACCRA.

    AT THE OPENING SESSION DR EVANS ANFOM, VICE-CHANCELLOR OF ACCRA'S UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, APPEALED TO GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS, CORPORATIONS AND PRIVATE FIRMS DEALING WITH LAND-USAGE TO EMPLOY GRADUATES FROM THE UNIVERSITY'S DEPARTMENT OF LAND ECONOMY AND ESTATE MANAGEMENT.

    THE DOCTOR, WHO WAS CHAIRING THE MEETING, EMPHASISED THAT PUBLIC EXPENDITURE IN PRODUCING GRADUATES IS ENORMOUS. IT WAS NOT NORMALLY THOUGHT THAT A UNIVERSITY HAD AN EXPRESS DUTY TO FIND JOBS FOR ITS GRADUATES. BUT IN VIEW OF THIS PUBLIC EXPENSE IN THEIR PRODUCTION, THE UNIVERSITY COULD NOT AFFORD TO SEE THEIR SKILL AND TALENTS WASTED BY DIVERSION INTO THE WRONG SECTORS OF THE ECONOMY LARGELY BECAUSE WOULD-BE EMPLOYERS WERE IGNORANT OF THEIR CAPABILITIES.

    HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT, MR. E.ACQUAYE, EXPLAINED ITS WORK TO THE AUDIENCE -- WHICH INCLUDED MR HARRY SAWYERR, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF A SURVEYING FIRM; PROFESSOR SEY, DEAN OF THE UNIVERSITY'S FACULTY OF AGRICULTURE; GHANA'S COMMISSIONER FOR ECONOMIC AFFAIRS E.N. OMABOE; AND J.S. ADDO, DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF THE BANK OF GHANA.

    THE DEPARTMENT TRANS STUDENTS IN LAND MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION, LAND USE PLANNING, LAND ACQUISITION AND LAND DEVELOPMENT. STUDENTS ALSO STUDY LAND SETTLEMENT AND REFORM AND LAND SURVEYING. APART FROM THE RESPECT WITH WHICH GHANAIANS THINK OF THEIR LAND, STRESSED MR ACQUAYE, IT WAS TRUE THAT LAND CONSTITUTED THE BULK OF NATIONAL ESTATE AND THEIR PROPER MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT WAS THEREFORE OF THE HIGHEST IMPORTANCE.
