LIVESTREAMING: Hosi, Gyampo lock horns on PM Express over University of Ghana

The platform is set for Senyo Hosi, Chief Executive of Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors to meet Prof. Ransford Gyampo, Director of European Studies at the University of Ghana for a deliberation over assertions the former made which the latter vehemently debunked.

At an event to mark University of Ghana’s 70th anniversary, a disappointed Hosi, jabbed management and lecturers of the institution stressing, “You guys are not thinking.”

Although he boasts of three degrees from Ghana’s premier university, Hosi remarked he would never employ graduate from UG.

“You are churning out people with degrees not people with an education, not people with skills. Your children don’t have skills that make them viable for the future. They don’t have the thinking; they are robots. Even that robot, they can’t do it,” he said while stating unequivocally that the lecturers equally thinketh not.

“You guys are not thinking. Respectfully, no thinking is going on here. It starts with you guys as lecturers. It starts with you being the thinkers. You guys are not thinking. Respectfully, no thinking is going on here.”
Prof. Gyampo in an epistle slammed Hosi, as he posited the alumnus is rather not being thoughtful.

“I disagree with you that UG people don’t think. I rather will wish to question your own ability to think. It seems to me that you spoke without any introspection. Your words were unexamined. Otherwise, how did you obtain three degrees from an institution of non-thinkers? If you are a thinker yourself, why do you go to a non-thinking school to obtain three degrees? UG taught you well, but clearly, not all students are receptive to teaching and learning. Hence your ignorant outburst,” portions of his eight-point letter read.

Joining both personalities on JoyNews’ PM Express is Prof. Ebo Hinson, Head of Department of Marketing and Entrepreneurship, University of Ghana Business School; and Chris Atadika, President of Graduate Student Association of Ghana.
