Mr JoJo Entusah, a Florida based Geo-Technical and Environmental Engineer, has called for a strong network among teachers, parents and other stakeholders to help build and sustain values and ethical principles for effective education delivery.

That was the surest way to build the right attitude and aptitude in students and help produce responsible, focused citizens for the future.

Speaking at the 89th Speech and Prizing Giving Day of the Saint Augustine’s College in Cape Coast, Mr Entsuah called for a paradigm shift in the education system to focus on producing problem solvers for the country.

According to him, the biggest problem confronting Ghana and the rest of Africa was lack of problem solvers.

The celebration was on the theme:”Re-igniting the values and ethics of the college for effective education delivery”.

It was sponsored by the 1994 Year Group of St Augustine’s College Past Students’ Union (APSU 94), who refurbished the school’s dispensary and reconstructed the basketball and tennis courts.

“A perfect citizen should be one who is defined as a problem solver. This country needs a lot of problem solvers. We have a lot of people with big designations, but are not problem solvers and that is what our education must drive at, producing problem solvers”, Mr Entsuah stressed.

He said preparation and production of perfect citizens for the future has been and continued to be the ultimate objective of the Augustine’s College and commended the school for offering outstanding quality education to many Ghanaians since it’s inception.

Mr Entsuah who is an Old Boy, charged the students to take their studies seriously, and to live by the motto of the school which calls for hard work and perseverance.

Most Reverend Matthias Kobena Nketsia, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, and patron of the college said the ultimate goal of education was to bring out the unique talents of individuals to meaningfully contribute to solving societal problems.

He therefore called on the students to be disciplined in order to bring out the best out of them and urged APSUNIANS to live by the holistic training they received at the college, and endeavour to give back to their Alma mater.

Mr Kwamena Duncan, Central Regional Minister, underscored that training young people to become holistic and perfect citizens for national development was a shared responsibility of both parents and tutors.

He advised the students against idling, but make maximum use of the resources at their disposal and be mindful of their actions and commended all stakeholders for their invaluable contributions and efforts towards the steady growth and development of the College.

Mr Joseph Connel, Headmaster of the College, said the school continued to perform creditably in all spheres of school activities such as academics, sports, social and religion.

Deserving students, teaching and non-teaching staff were presented with awards which ranged from books to refrigerators and cash.
