The Founder of KAAF University College, Mr Micheal Adu, has urged tertiary students in the country to take advantage of the opportunities offered in school to build a strong networking system, “ key to success in life’’.

He said without exposure and a solid association, it would be difficult to know the right people whose contribution to your life could lead you to your destination.

Mr Adu made the call at the school’s premises at Buduburam, in the Central Region when students from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) visited the school to interact with the students, lecturers and the administration of KAAF.

The purpose was to enable students from the two schools to share experiences, build formidable friendship and further deepen the cordial relationship between the two institutions.

Some of the areas where the discussions touched included, career development, opportunities on the job market and building relationships.

Students had the chance to discuss challenges encountered in their various fields of work.

In an address read on his behalf by the Coordinator In -charge of Monitoring and Evaluation, Ms Theresa Adusei Peasah, he noted that the job market demanded a lot of experience, knowledge and attitude and said students should not take it for granted.

“Education would equip you with the needed power, but i’ts up to you to use it as your tool to create the future you desire’’, he said.

He said tertiary education must offer students the opportunity to discuss experience, learn from each other and build a solid network to enable them “be exposed to things they are yet to face.”

Mr Adu, therefore, advised students to perceive tertiary education as a platform to generate more knowledge and explore all options to enhance their capabilities.

A lecturer at GIMPA, Dr Felicia Owusu Fofie stressed the need for students to come together to share their strengths and experiences to develop their skills.

According to her, the best opportunity in life was hidden in sound relationship, adding ‘’make use of every opportunity life brings your way’’.

Quality leaders must not step upon the toes of any citizen and be free from bad records.
