Bolgatanga Poly lecturers lack office spaces, use their cars for academic work

The Rector of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic, Professor Samuel Erasmus Alnaa has painted a glooming picture about his outfit, saying the Polytechnic has no office spaces for lecturers to carry out other relevant academic works.

The Rector, Prof. Samuel Alnaa made the revelation at the 7th congregation ceremony of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic, where he also announced that most of lecturers there have turned their cars into offices, whiles others use the shades of the Mango Trees on campus for some academic works.

“…our lecturers have no office spaces to do any serious academic work. Some have turned their cars into offices, others use the shades of the Mango Trees, others rush back home as soon as they are done with their lessons. Indeed, the situation is negatively affecting lecturers who want conduct research and other academic work.” He said.

He however, advised graduates not to use the knowledge gain from the polytechnic for bad deeds, rather they should be seen as championing good practices that will profit the whole nation.

“As you go out into the world of work, I challenge you not to become complacent or give up when you are faced with difficulties on the field. Use the entrepreneurial skills you have gained here to face your difficulties head-on.” He said.

Upper East Regional Minister, Hon. Paulina Patience Abayage who was the special guest of honor 7th Congregation ceremony of Polytechnic, assured the graduates of government’s commitment and efforts to create employment opportunities in the public sector and ensure an enabling environment for the private sector to thrive and to employ more of the teeming youth in the country.

“Government has not relented in its effort towards ensuring that the unemployed teeming youth are engaged. Without doubt the economy needs and has more room for Technical and vocational professionals like you. I wish you well and encourage you to reflect on this thought that nothing can stop your aims in life when you work out with a clean heart.” She said.

A total of 299 students graduated at the 7th Congregation; 26 were awarded with Bachelor of Technology whilst the rest were awarded with Higher National Diploma in various fields of study.

Management and staff of the institution therefore hoping that the Bolgatanga Polytechnic will soon be converted into a Technical University like others have had.
