The Inspector-General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare, has urged graduates of the 14th Congregation of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) to contribute to the world as they graduate.
According to the IGP, providing value and assisting in the resolution of global problems will allow them to become financially stable because value can be commercialized.
The advice was given by the IGP during his graduation speech at the 14th Congregation of the UPSA in Accra on Tuesday, August 30, 2022.
“The world is waiting to celebrate you or punish you depending on what you throw at it. Let people benefit from your knowledge and skill set as you leave here today. As soon as people begin to benefit from your knowledge, then you’re providing value to others. You can commercialise this value and become financially stable and independent. Providing value also makes you very useful to the rest of the world,” the IGP said.
“You should continue to be disciplined if you want to make the world a better place. You should see failure as part of the process to success and never give up. With perseverance, a breakthrough will come. Don’t give up easily, if you do, you miss an opportunity to turn the world around”.
On his part, the Vice Chancellor of the University Professor Abednego Amartey urged the graduands to step up and be better ambassadors of the school.
In all about 2000 students comprising of diploma, undergrad and masters level graduated today.
