Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Saturday urged graduands at the Pentecost University College to show integrity and sincerity in all their Endeavours as they enter the world of work to pursue their dreams and aspirations.
He entreated them to serve humanity with sincerity and integrity, noting that, those values are pivotal in building a Ghana Beyond Aid.
"No matter where you find yourself, you're not to look for material things that are not what life is about...you're to serve humanity.
"You're going to look around and see ostenticity, pettiness and greed so much on display...you need to think and say to yourselves...this is not the way to build a Ghana beyond Aid," the Vice President pointed out.
He noted that as they venture into the world of work, they would meet many naysayers who would discourage them from exploring and pursuing their potentials, and urged them to remain focused and utilise the knowledge and skills acquired to make it in life.
He said the vision to build a Ghana Beyond Aid should not be seen as one of the political platitudes in the past, saying that the President's vision would be translated into policies and strategies to better the lives of the people.
He, therefore, called for attitudinal change and a change in the value system as well as build a culture of entrepreneurship in order to accomplish the agenda.
Vice President Bawumia made the call at the 10th Congregation of the Pentecost University College, in Accra.
The event was held under the theme: "Ghana Beyond Aid-The Role of Tertiary Education".
