[OMG!Ghana] At a recent matriculation ceremony of Jayee University College (JUC) in Accra, the Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, Prof. Emmanuel Abakah, raised alarm on the increasing rate of immorality in tertiary instituions cautioning students against indulging in these activities that could pose danger to their future advancement.

He particularly cautioned students against alcoholism, hooliganism and examination malpractices, which, he said, had destroyed the future of many youth in the country.

The ceremony was the seventh matriculation ceremony of Jayee University College (JUC) in Accra

Cautioning the students, Prof. Abakah said, ?Your destiny is in your hands. What you do today, how you conduct your life today and the seriousness you attach to your studies today determine what you would be in future.?

In all, 265 Ghanaian students and 25 foreigners were admitted to the diploma and degree programmes.

The students took the matriculation oath to abide and obey the rules and regulations governing the school.

Prof. Abakah said without discipline and hard work, it would be difficult for any person to succeed in whatever field or career he or she had chosen.

He said most of the things that hindered students from attaining the best and achieving their dreams were the very lives they led during their days in school.

Prof. Abakah, however, commended JUC for the effort put in place to ensure that students received the best of quality education.

?It is encouraging that the JUC has an eight-week compulsory internship package and industrial attachment programmes for its students. This has the advantage of exposing hard-working and ambitious students to available jobs,? he said.

The President of JUC, Mr John Emmanuel Donkoh, said the institution had nurtured hundreds of graduates, many of whom had become key players in the various sectors of the country?s development.

He, therefore, urged the students not to allow any extraneous or peer group influence to distract their attention from their academic work, adding that such influence could be counter-productive.
