The Director of Quality Assurance and Academic Planning at the Cape Coast Technical University, Rev H.A Ndebugri says universities need to design innovative programmes that turn ideas into products for national development.
According to him, Ghana has over the years produced more people to fit into white colour jobs than producing people who are innovative to start their own business.
Dr. Ndebugri was speaking at the 8th National Service Personnel Association’s Delegate Congress held in Cape Coast.
Speaking on the theme, “Entrepreneurship and Capacity Building; A Key to National Development”, Rev Ndebugri noted, in order to promote national development, it is important that universities focus on producing more creative and skillful graduates who can find and manage their own business.
He said, anyone who is engaged in innovative activities puts inventions into practice and transforms a disembodied idea into a workable and economically viable operation. He indicated, determination is one of the virtues that need to be employed in the pursuit of wealth. He encouraged entrepreneurs to adopt the habit of persistence to be successful.
