Professor Jophus Anamua-Mensah, immediate past Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, has stressed the need to effectively combine spiritual education and academic endeavours to help raise a generation of youth who would be God-fearing, disciplined and patriotic.
He noted that Ghana was in a “spiritual crisis that require spiritual solutions”.
He was speaking at the matriculation of the Christian Service University College (CSUC) in Kumasi at the weekend during which 643 students were admitted to pursue four-year under-graduate programmes in Communication Studies, Theology, Computer Science and Business Administration.
Prof. Anamua-Mensah pointed out that “even though universities in the country are turning out brilliant and intelligent students, they are morally and spiritually bankrupt”.
He appealed to Ghanaians to be tolerant of divergent views and listen to each other instead of indulging in conflicts during the December election.
Professor Emmanuel Frempong, president of CSUC, advised the students to abide by the rules and regulations of the university.
He said the university had a student population of 1,584 with females constituting about 45 per cent.
