Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu has called for the sustenance ‘of innovative methods and creative processes of operation that have been gathered’ as parts of efforts to adapt to changes the coronavirus pandemic has caused.
In his 2021 New Year message to members of the University community, Prof. Oduro Owusu was pleased that the institution was able to complete the 2019/2020 academic year amidst the pandemic.
He said that even though the previous year will be remembered for the negative impact of the pandemic, it saw the “creativity, ingenuity, resilience and resourcefulness of humankind, and the human capacity to adapt to all manner of situations in the face of adversity”
“We can therefore look back, over the past several months, with satisfaction, particularly, with regards to how we have successfully managed to end the 2019/20 academic year and crowning it by graduating over 9,000 students,” part of the statement reads.
“As we prepare to enter 2021, we look forward to a University life that returns us to the new normal created by the COVID-19. Let us sustain the innovative methods and creative processes of operation which we have gathered along the way as we try to adapt to the pandemic,” the statement adds.
Ahead of a possible reopening of tertiary institutions for academic activities, he has urged everyone to adhere to the Covid-19 protocols.
“Hopefully, the University will re-open in the next few weeks to welcome fresh students as well as continuing and graduate students. Thus, with the pandemic still raging, I entreat us to comply with the Covid-19 protocols at all times to keep us safe in all endeavors,” Prof. Oduro Owusu said.
