The Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management (PAHSM) student association of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) hosted their Cooperate Executive in Residence, Dr Wisdom Amegbletor as part of their week celebration. The seminar dubbed “A paradigm shift from a politically consumed youth to an entrepreneurial minded youth” was held on Wednesday 22nd February, 2017 at the R.S Amegashie Auditorium.
Dr Justice Nyigmah Bawole, head of Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management in his welcome address, expressed his appreciation to the association’s leadership for helping him achieve his vision of reviving the association and pushing the students’ agenda to produce a generation of change makers who will be responsible and solution driven. Dr Bawole mentioned that the Public Administration and Health Services Management is at the fulcrum of the national development thus it is important for student and lecturers in the department to join the public discourse in order to shape the country’s developmental agenda.
The Guest speaker, Dr Wisdom Amegbletor, a medical practitioner and CEO of New Crystal Services Ltd who doubles as the Cooperate Executive in Residence for PAHSM, advised students not to over-depend on political parties for job recruitment after school.
He cautioned students against falling prey to political parties who recruit the youth and convert them into “charged ammunitions of insults” to vilify political opponents. Dr Amegbletor noted that students must desist from such attitudes, because no serious business entity will employ such people in when politics fails them.
On unemployment, Dr Amegbletor encouraged students not to be a part of the problem, but, rather act as high class models, using the value added on them while in school to identify the little problems in society and fix them profitably. He urged students to develop the knack for finding solutions that satisfies needs and reap from them in ways that does not compromise their credibility.
A citation of honour was presented to Dr Amegbletor for his sterling contribution to the Department of Public Administration and Health Services Management.
