The management of Pentecost University (PU) met with officials of the Media Ministry of The Church of Pentecost yesterday to discuss some issues of mutual interest.
The meeting, which took place at the university’s Sowutuom campus, was held to explore more opportunities for firmer collaborations to champion the Pentecost University’s A+ agenda.
The two-member delegation of the Media Ministry, made up of Pastor Dr. Felix Dela Klutse (Media Ministry Pastor) and Elder Prince Kojo Asare (Senior Editor, Media Ministry), was warmly received by the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Pentecost University, Apostle Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua, who commended them for their continued support to the University.
Commenting on University’s A+ agenda, the VC explained that PU seeks to raise problem solvers with godly character to meet the challenges on the African continent.
According to him, professional skills and ethics are necessary requirements for effective service in society, a reason why PU strives to develop both the skills and ethics of its students.
“A professional like a medical doctor, accountant, or a driver who is ethical but not technically good at their profession can be as dangerous as the one who is properly skilled but is unethical,” he said.
Prof. Agyapong-Kodua, further noted that, the management of PU had, over the years, made it a prime objective to put the University on a solid financial footing. Having achieved this target, he further stated, PU is now focused on building an institution to “spread and last.”
Dr. Abrahma Nyebah, the Acting Chief Finance Officer of the University, shared with the team PU’s road to financial stability and how management intends to sustain and improve upon the gains made in the future.
Dr. Nyebah was upbeat about the future of the University as he revealed that PU currently has three other campuses in Ghana – PCC, Gomoa-Fetteh, Takoradi and Sunyani – with a student enrolment of more than 13,000.
Pastor Dr. Klutse, on his part, congratulated the leadership of PU for the remarkable progress made and expressed his commitment towards helping the University realise its strategic vision.
He said that included in the strategic plan of the Media Ministry is the resolution to help Pentecost University to become the tertiary institution of choice in Ghana and to help meet its objectives.
Aside from promoting Pentecost University on the various digital platforms, Pastor Dr. Klutse said the Media Ministry would also partner with the University to organise workshops and conferences, and provide training and industrial attachment opportunities to students.
Pastor Dr. Klutse also visited the International Digital Centre (IDC), where he interacted with Mr. Isaac Kumah Yeboah, the Acting Director of the Centre, about the prospects of PU’s engineering faculty.
Other PU representatives at the meeting were Mr. Michel W. K. Gyimah (Chief Information Officer), Mr. Isaac Yeboah (Admissions Officer), and Mr. David Kyetong Guun (Acting Head of Business Development and Corporate Affairs).
