Nkoranza campus of Anglican University College to open this year

The Anglican Church is set to open the first campus of its University College of Science and Technology at Nkoranza in the Brong-Ahafo Region within the year.

The university which would be affiliated with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has many structures for lecture halls almost complete while syllabi, lecturers and other core staff are all ready.

This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of a four-day National Conference of Bishops and Diocesan Council of the Church, held at the Samaritan Villa in Kumasi, where they deliberated on ways of promoting the growth of the church.

It expressed concern about the growing indiscipline among the youth and encouraged Regional Managers’ of the Anglican Education Unit, to do everything to strengthen supervision in the schools and ensure that they help the children to uphold the values of not only hard work and honesty but to be God-fearing.

The communiqué said this would require the collaboration with the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the District Education Officers, and appealed to the leadership of the various political parties to discourage their supporters from acts likely to disturb the country’s peace.

It said they should be measured in their pronouncements and desist from insults and vulgar language, as there was the need to ensure civility in the political discourse.

The communiqué said the Church is deeply worried by the emerging trend of political intolerance and appealed that this must end.**
