Change is coming - Bishop Agyinasare

Presiding Bishop of the Perez Chapel International (PCI), Bishop Charles Agyinasare has predicted a whirlwind of change that will propel Ghana and Africa into an era of landmark achievements.

He pegged Africa’s woes to the “endemic corruption and many visionless intellectuals and graduates from institutions who will rather stay at home than work if they have not been employed, and where we have engineers who sit in the office and are not manufacturing, teachers who are still using books written in the 60s instead of writing new materials, where most of our people do not want to think outside the box to accomplish unprecedented feats”, the man of God said “I am convinced that there must be a change and I am glad to announce to you that change is coming.”

That was during his investiture as the newly appointed Chancellor of the Perez Christian University College (PUCUC) over the weekend in Accra.

The University is now located at Gomoa Pomadze-Winneba, along the Winneba-Swedru highway, about a kilometer from Winneba roundabout (Junction).

Speaking at the event which was held at the Perez Dome, Bishop Agyinasare promised that the institution will churn out problem-solving scholars.

“I strongly believe that very soon this university college will churn out graduates who will not be learning by rote, but will be problem solving and solution providing scholars who will bring significant change and transformation to their spheres of influence,” he said in presence of President John Dramani Mahama who was the special guest of honour.

The Perez Chapel International acquired the Pan African Christian University College in November 2015. The institution and its two schools are duly accredited by the National Accreditation Board of Ghana since 2007. The School of Theology has affiliation with the Trinity Theological Seminary (TTS) and the School of Business is affiliated to the University of Cape Coast.

On his part, President John Mahama expressed confidence in Bishop Agyinasare’s ability to lead the school to chart a new course as he takes over as Chancellor.

He also encouraged educational institutions in the country to change curricular to reflect what businesses and industries need for economic growth and growing needs.
