The Vice-Principal of the Methodist University College, Very Reverend Professor Joseph M.Y. Edusah-Eyison, has expressed worry over what he described as ‘the lack of commitment on the part of some teachers’ to the welfare of students’ across the country’.

He said instead of utilising instructional hours efficiently, some teachers rather organised extra classes to make extra cash, while some went to the extent of threatening to fail students who refused to patronise such classes.

“There were no extra classes in the olden days but we passed… teachers must show commitment,” he stated.

Induction of new principal
The Very Rev. Prof. Edusah-Eyison expressed these sentiments at a service at the Wesley Methodist Cathedral in Cape Coast  last Sunday, to induct Mrs Comfort Sarpong Akosa into office as the new principal for the Komenda College of Education.

Mrs Akosa, 55, was appointed by the National Council for Tertiary Education and the Methodist Church, Ghana,  to replace Miss Gladys Annan Nunoo, who retired last year.

Before her appointment, Mrs Akosa had served for 10 years as the Vice-Principal, out of the 21 years service she had rendered to the St. Louis College of Education in Kumasi.

The Very Rev. Prof. Edusah-Eyison , who is  also the Director, Tertiary Education Division of the Methodist Church, stressed the need for education in the country to be geared towards problem solving and explained that  “education without values makes one only a cleaner devil”.

Women making a difference
Addressing the theme of the sermon, “Women Making a Difference”, he acknowledged the essential role women played in society and advised them not to allow this same society to belittle their intelligence and capacity.

He praised the courage, intelligence and resilience of Queen Esther, Priscilla and other female biblical personalities and urged women to leave a mark and make a difference wherever they found themselves.

Mrs Akosa is a former student of Bekwai Seventh-Day Adventist School; Wesley College of Education and the University of Education, Winneba, where she specialised in teaching Music. She also has a Master of Education Degree in Administration from the University of Cape Coast.
