The Minister for Education, Hon. Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum who inaugurated the council, urged the members to ensure that the institution produces graduates who are critical thinkers.
“One of the critical things you need to do is to create critical thinking graduates. If they think critically, they will be able to surmount any challenge they come across when they graduate from the institution,” he said.
Mr. Piesie Kofi Asante, Chairman of the governing council pledged the commitment of he and his members to work tirelessly to support the Management of the University to improve upon what their predecessors built.
He identified inadequate infrastructure for students as the main challenge facing the school and pleaded with the Minister to assist in that regard. I believe if the facilities are improved, we can attract more students, he disclosed.
He also used the opportunity to thank the Minster of Education for the support given to GIMPA over the years.
“As Boss of SIGA with the responsibility to supervise and administer the interest of the State in SOEs, JVCs and OSEs, Mr. Asamoah-Boateng is to use his position to get the Management of these Entities trained to perform to the highest standards. This should go a long way to turn around their businesses. His membership of the Governing Council is also to enable GIMPA become financially sustainable Higher Education Institute for the country’s Public Administrators”.
