Standards of behavior; one’s judgement of what is important in life is fundamental to a country’s development, it’s at the back of moral uprising and traditions that we including you, the professional students must cultivate so that together, we can make Ghana a better place for. As leaders, you must respect the values, Mutapha Abdul-Hamid
The Chief Executive Officer of the National Petroleum Authority, Hon, Dr Mustapha Hamid has bemoaned leaders of student bodies to cultivate ethical values in their line of duty and refrain from political malfeasance in discharging their duty.
He said this at the 21st Handing over and swearing-in of the newly elected executives of the Ghana Union of Professional students (GUPS) at the Blue Crest University College at Kokomlemle in Accra on Saturday 18
“What develops a country is values and not positions”, in our quest to serve, we must remember that the first allegiance is to Ghana and not any political party and that is what every student leader of various Student Bodies should bear in mind and nature the mentality and cultivate them into actionable plans. He alluded.
He further advised and admonished the new governing body of GUPS led by Emily Jemima Nyarko to have the interest of the students they will be serving at heart and eschew politics with their office.
He further promised his unflinching support and opened his doors to the union should they need any assistance.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer for the National Petroleum Authority expressed worry about how Ghanaians are retarding the development of the country by what he describes as poor ethical values.
He said Ghana has an abundance of resources but the country is poor amongst its peers because of the poor attitudes Ghanaians have towards the country.
According to Dr Mustapha Abdul Hamid, some politicians are corrupt because of the heavy demand constituents demand from some of the MPs and those who always want to satisfy their constituents involved in corruption.
He said until Ghanaians refrain from the negative attitudes and
behaviours adopted towards governance, our collective development for the nation will not be achieved.
The new President of the Union Ms Emily Nyarko Jemima outlined her vision for the association under her outfit as the president and promised to work diligently with her executives to achieve the ultimate.
