Petrochemical required for the emerging market of the oil and gas industry in Ghana.
Mr Ofosu-Ampofo asked the graduands to be innovative and urged them to lead
disciplined and morally upright life styles.

indiscipline, occultism in schools and senseless murder of innocent people among other
things and called for concerted efforts from all to help address the situation

technologies, which make skills redundant and said continuous skills upgrading was needed.
