The founder of the New House of Thunder Ministry, ?Apostle Owusu Amissah has called for the total overhaul of the country?s educational policy from producing academic graduates who just become job seekers to technologically inclined graduates who become job providers.

Apostle Amissah who made the call at Agona Kwanyako said the concept of producing academicians introduced in the country by the colonial masters has no place in the development of any nation, as the world is now driven by technological ideas.
He said it is now time for the country to reconsider and reposition its educational policies to suit the current trend of development in the world, and has therefore called on the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service to work towards this objective.
According to him, lack of innovative graduates in the country has contributed to the problem of increasing rate of unemployment, as the current university graduates churned out are trained to be administrators, rather than technologist.
He expressed regret why the country abounds in both natural and mineral resources, yet its political leaders always go cup-in-hand to Western countries who do not have even half of these resources to beg for alms under the guise of donor support.
He pointed out that until Ghana, and for that matter African leaders begin to see themselves as capable of solving their own problems with their own resources, people of theContinent will forever remain under the bondage of slavery under the guise of donor support from Western countries.
He later described Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah as one patriotic and selfless African leader who saw the need to emancipate the minds of all Africans through the establishment of technical institutions to make them productive, so as not to rely on colonial oppression.
He has therefore challenged Ghana?s political leaders to emulate the selfless character of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and desist from bowing to external pressures such as the proposed forced passage of homosexuality law in Africa in exchange for aid as suggested by British Prime Minister David Cameron.
