Rector of the Valley View University (VVU), Kumasi Campus, Pastor Dr. E. B. Amponsah has admonished his campus congregation to put their God – given talents to good use.
According to him, it is high time God’s children refrained from putting all their hopes in non existent miracles and forged ahead in their endeavours through practical means.
This was contained in a sermon delivered by the Man of God on Saturday, 28th April, 2018, during the Swearing In Ceremony organized for newly elected executive of the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) at the Kenyasi – based campus of the university in the Kwabre East District of the Ashanti Region.
Basing the sermon on a scriptural lesson from Daniel 6 : 3, Pastor Amponsah implored the gathering not to make decisions with blind hopes, but rather, be realistic.
He admonished the gathering to learn to go through the process, since, according to him, God Himself does not negate the importance of process as a means of achieving one’s goals. He also implored the congregation to climb the professional ladder with performance.
Delivering his handing over speech, the outgone president of the SRC, Mr. Prince Gyasi outlined the successes chalked by his administration as well as some challenges.
The newly elected president of the council, Mr. Maxwell Wireko, in his acceptance speech, commended the past administration for its service to the university over the past year. In his short speech, Mr. Wireko drummed home the need for the new administration to be united. According to him, even though each of the executive members rode on the back of individual campaign promises to win the elections, the need had come for all those promises to be synchronized into one agenda to seek for the forward movement of the Seventh – Day Adventist (SDA) owned and managed university.
The Valley View University (VVU) has the singular distinction of being the first private university in Ghana to be granted a charter. The university which has its main campus in Oyibi, Accra, has many other campuses scattered across the country and promises to offer the best form of education to its students as it churns out thousands of products every year. The university thrives on three pillars of Excellence, Integrity and Hardwork.
The new leadership of the VVU SRC comprise of:
Messrs Maxwell Wireko (President), Charles Nyame (Vice president), Emmanuel Brobbey (General Secretary), Asante Seth (Welfare Secretary) and Francis Obeng Agyemang (Editor). Others are Mr. Robert Mensah (Finance Officer), Miss Mary Osei Konadu (Public Relations Officer) and Miss Christiana Dadzie (Women’s Organizing Secretary).
Undoubtedly, students’ expectations from the Wireko-led administration are very great and enormous. Is this team going to bring anything different to the table? Well, it is everyone’s hope that it does. So how shall it go with the Wireko – Nyame team? Surely, anyhow it goes, the inquisitor is watching closely and will report any drop that falls from this bucket of water.
