We're creating the next generation of leaders to drive change - Bishop Titi-Ofei
Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei, founder and chairman of the Governing Council of Accra Business School (ABS), says the institution is creating the next generation of leaders who will drive the needed change in various sectors of the economy.
He said this at the 13th congregation of the ABS, where 212 students were conferred various degrees, including the Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Accounting and Finance, and the Bachelor of Science in Administration and Global Leadership, among others.
The 13th congregation was themed, "Creating Jobs in the Ghanaian Economy: Challenges and Opportunities."
Speaking at the glamorous convocation held at the Accra International Conference Centre, Bishop Titi-Ofei congratulated the graduating class of 2022 on reaching the latest milestone.
"We are creating a global business school that is creating the next great leader who can drive change, lead innovation, and solve the numerous problems confronting our beloved country.
"As a business school, we are creating leaders who will help fine-tune the moral fibre of our society," he said.
Bishop Titi-Ofei added that his outfit was poised to produce job creators who would increase income and reduce poverty.
"At ABS, we believe that there is a direct correlation between democratic stability and economic growth. For our democracy, which we have laboured and worked hard for, to grow and thrive, we must work hard to create an enabling environment for entrepreneurial opportunities for young people," he stated.
He further stated that they would continue to invest in research and development to create leaders who could drive change.
Former President John Dramani Mahama, who was the guest speaker, in his keynote address, lauded the management of ABS for positively impacting the educational space for developing leaders through various programmes.
"Let me congratulate ABS for the incredible job it has done at nurturing and training generations of leaders whose success in their various fields of endeavour would propel the progress of this dear country of ours," he stated.
The former President also congratulated the students for their achievements and urged them to take up leadership roles to help drive the change we yearn for.
Mr. Prince Nuamah Amoako was adjudged the overall best student at the 13th convocation of the Accra Business School.
