On Thursday, 8th June 2023, President Akufo-Addo commissioned the National Aquaculture Centre and Commercial Farms.
The aim of the National Aquaculture Centre is to produce quality fish products, and create employment through the training of the local population as fish farmers, with emphasis on graduates from our universities.
The Centre complements the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development’s programme on Aquaculture for Food and Jobs (AFJ), and reaffirms government’s determination to reduce graduate unemployment in the country.
He also used the opportunity to interact with this year’s winners of the Junior Graphic Essay Competition.
He had the honour of being the reviewing officer at the graduation parade of Officer Cadet Course Intake 31 of the Prisons Service, at the Prison Officers’ Training School, Roman Ridge.
At the graduation ceremony for Intake 31 Officer Cadets of the Prisons Service, the president entreated the graduands to continue to carry forth the ideals of the Prisons Service, which have been imbued in them during training.
“I urged them to let discipline and professionalism guide their conduct at all times. I implored them also to internalize the principles of vigilance, humanity and fortitude. These must be their watchwords in their relationship with their fellow officers and the inmates,” he wrote in a Facebook post.
He assured winners of this year’s Junior Graphic Essay Competition and all Ghanaians that the Akufo-Addo government remains committed to providing quality education for all our youth.
“Government will continue to invest in the development of our educational system, ensuring that every child has access to the tools and resources they need to succeed. We will create an environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and innovation, empowering our youth to shape the destiny of our nation and our world,” he pledged.
