NPP YOUTH WING WELCOMES ALL CONTINUING STUDENTS, FRESH MEN & WOMEN BACK TO SCHOOL; ENCOURAGES THEM TO JOIN TESCON
On behalf of the National Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party, I welcome all students who have returned to their various campuses to continue their education.
I also extend deep congratulations ￼ to the fresh men and women who have gained admission to pursue various programs in the tertiary institutions accross the Country.
It is refreshing that in your day, Ghana is led by a visionary leader from the NPP who has taken by far, the boldest decisions in our educational sector and made huge investments in education. God willing, in the next 2-3 years, under the leadership of H. E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, the tertiary strand of the education sector will witness astronomical growth in access by virtue of the successful implementation of the free SHS policy and infrastructure expansion program driven by GETFUND and the Ministry of Education.
Indeed, for the first time in recent history, Ghana has a Tertiary Education Policy Document which encapsulates cardinal policies of Government on tertiary education, from admissions through graduation, funding, graduate studies and cross-cutting issues on gender, equity and inclusiveness as well as the labour market.
The future of the Ghanaian youth is solid and promising under this government. Therefore, I wish to admonish the youth to commit to their books and focus on making the best out of their Tertiary education.
While at this, it is imperative that the youth take active part in the nation building agenda by joining credible and positive groupings that offer supplementary and critical services in the scheme of quality human capital development.
It is instructive to note that the only formidable association on our campuses with the track record in grooming and supplying the country with good leaders is the Tertiary Education Students Confederacy of the New Patriotic Party (TESCON).
TESCON for the past 19 years has trained thousands of young people who have assumed delicate leadership positions at the political, governance and corporate levels and are contributing immensely to the sustainable growth of the economy to enhance shared prosperity.
I encourage the freshers (level 100 hundred students) to join TESCON on their respective campuses and be part of the continuing agenda to have our names inscribed in gold in the history books of Ghana’s contemporary politics. I also encourage continuous students who are not TESCON members to register and join TESCON.
To members of the TESCON fraternity, I urge you to keep the faith, stay committed to the cause and be resolute in the pursuit of greater heights with TESCON as the National Youth Wing strives to reorient, retool and reposition TESCON for victory 2020 and beyond.
Once again, I WELCOME you all and wish you the very best of academic life on campus.
TESCON: Commitment Without Inducement
