As part of efforts to train and churn out students with good leadership skills, the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) and the Accra Business School, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)
The Accra Business School headed by Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei and NUGS will provide leadership training for student leaders across the country.
The MOU, which was signed by Isaac Jay Hyde, NUGS President, and witnessed by Divine Edem Kwadzodeh, NUGS General Secretary, establishes a framework of cooperation between the NUGS and the Accra Business School to enhance the quality of student and youth leadership in Ghana through leadership training activities such as capacity building programmes and projects, leadership boot camps, mentorship and career coaching amongst others.
Speaking at the signing ceremony held at the Accra Business School, Bishop Gideon Titi-Ofei, President of the Accra Business School, emphasised the need for a new generation of Ghanaian and African student and youth leaders who are well trained to understand that leadership thrives on service, integrity, empathy and genuineness.
He expressed hope that this renewed partnership between the NUGS and the Accra Business School will see to the emergence of a new generation of student leaders dedicated to these leadership values.
Isaac Jay Hyde thanked Accra Business School for taking a keen interest in the development of Ghanaian student leaders and expressed the resolve of NUGS to making the partnership succeed.
He stated that the first training sessions would begin sometime in February upon the return of students from vacations.
The Memorandum of Understanding signed by the two parties is expected to last for seven years, and makes provision for free accommodation, learning resources and a certificate after the training.
In attendance at the signing ceremony were former NUGS General Secretary, Mr Courage Nobi, President of the Ghana Union of Professional Students, Ebenezer Gabson, all national executive officers of NUGS as well top management officials of the Accra Business School.
