Presby College of Education gets new Principal
Akropong Akuapem, Feb. 1 GNA- The Reverend Samuel Yeboah-Antwi, has been inducted into office as the newly appointed Principal of the Presbyterian College of Education at Akropong.
Rev Dr Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, President of the Trinity Theological Seminary in Legon Accra who conducted the induction service urged the new principal to exhibit good leadership skills just like his forerunners in order to continue to position the college as the best among all.
He said many people took leadership positions for their personal interests such as fame and prestige and asked Rev Yeboah-Antwi to use his rich experience to facilitate national development.
The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Right Rev Professor Emmanuel Martey, admonished the principal to be strong and continue to seek the face of God in order to be able to deal with the challenges associated with his position.
He called on the teaching and non-teaching staff to co-operate with the principal in the development of the college.
He appealed to the authorities to ensure that unacceptable practices such as occultism, homosexuality and lesbianism were not entertained in the college, adding that any student found culpable should be dismissed.
The Vice Principal of the college, Mr Samuel Ofori Aboagye, said the academic facility, which was established in 1848 by the Presbyterian Church of Ghana had seen a number of heads with Rev Yeboah-Antwi as the 24th principal.
He said one major challenge facing the college is lack of science laboratory to meet the ever increasing students' population hence the need for a new facility.
Rev Yeboah-Antwi thanked the stakeholders of the school for the confidence reposed in him and assured that he would live up to expectation.
He expressed his gratitude to his predecessors for the solid foundation that they laid for the college.
He appealed to all stakeholders to support the management of the College to move it from the current stage to better heights.
Rev Yeboah-Antwi, who holds a Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) from Leeds University, has authored many publications.
He is an old student and former tutor of the College and married with four children.
