Rotary Club expresses concern about examination leakages

Listen to article

Akrokerri (Ash), May 15, GNA-Mr Kofi Addo, President of the Kumasi Rotary Club, has expressed concern about the increasing rate of examination malpractices and leakages, which, he said had created a bad impression about institutions and students.

He therefore, appealed to students to regard it as a moral duty to study much harder and come out with genuine and acceptable results. Mr. Addo expressed the concern during the inauguration of a 360 million- cedi computer centre for the Akrokerri Training College at Akrokerri in the Adansi North District on Friday. The Centre was constructed with assistance from the Rotary Club of Denmark, through the Rotary Club of Kumasi, and the instrumentality of Mr P.V. Obeng, a prominent citizen of the town.

The Centre is equipped with 60 computers and accessories. The cost of installation of the computers, which stands at 60 million cedis was however, borne by the college from its own resources. Mr. Addo said because of globalisation, there was an urgent need for everybody to become computer literate to enable the country effectively cope up with the advanced countries.

Mr J.K. Asare, Principal of the college said the centre was the result of a passionate appeal made to Mr. P.V. Obeng during the 40th anniversary of the College, to explore avenues to assist it with facilities for computer studies.

He commended Mr. Obeng, the Rotary Clubs of Kumasi and Denmark for demonstrating, in practical terms, their concern for quality education for people of the area and assured them that the facilities would be judiciously used.

Mr. Abu Bonsra, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the College, urged the students to make good use of the facilities to justify the sacrifices and huge funds injected into the provision of the centre. Mr Eric Annor, President of the Students' Representative Council (SRC) of the college, on behalf of the student body later presented some assorted books worth five million cedis to the College to assist in teaching and learning.
