Deputy Speaker Advises Universities


Universities in the country have been urged to embrace ecologically friendly principles to help conserve the environment. Mr Freddie Blay, First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, gave the advice at the 13th congregation of the Valley View University at Oyibi near Accra yesterday.

Mr Blay said nature was a special gift from God, which must be preserved for the benefit of mankind, adding, "Our generation holds it in trust for us and owes succeeding generations the duty of preserving this heritage for a better life in the future."

He commended the University for embarking on ecologically friendly projects, adding, "I hope the university will enhance and sustain its focus on the ecology and sustainable and balanced environmental practices which will have far-reaching socio-economic impact on the inhabitants of the environment."
