Members of the Graduate Students' Association of Ghana (GRASAG) at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) have inducted into office seven new executives to steer the affairs of the association for the 2019/2020 academic session.

The officers are Mr Raphael Apetorgbor, President; Mr Adam Mohammed Iddrissu, Vice President; Mr Christopher Flomo, General Secretary; and Mrs Fuseina Issah, Women's Commissioner.

The rest are Alhaji Yussif Baba Suleman, Organiser; Mrs Mariama Dauda, Treasurer; Mr Eric Ofosu Asare, Public Relations Officer and Mr Osei Kwame-Griffiths; Chief Justice.

The induction and inauguration ceremony was on the theme: "Setting the pace for proactive leadership".

Speaking at the ceremony, the Deputy Rector of GIMPA, Professor Phillip Duku Osei tasked the student leaders to be accountable not only to the student body, but to the authorities they work with, and Ghana as a whole.

He also underscored the need for the executives to nurture the undergraduates as well as ensure that their welfare was completely taken care of through better customer service, adding that: “This is why we have set up two offices, Office of the Dean of Students and Office of the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies”.

Prof Osei said this was planned with an objective to grow the graduate school, and as such, GRASAG-GIMPA had two key offices to support their programmes.

The Deputy Rector said Ghana was at a point where she needed a lot of graduate products with critical thinking and were able to do problem analysis “to resolve all the numerous problems we have in our communities and at the national level.”

The Dean of Students, Prof Anthony Sallah, urged the student leaders to work closely with the university management to bring about meaningful change in the lives of the students.

He advised the executives to work as a team in order to achieve their vision and mission as student leaders.

The Dean of Graduate Studies and Research, Prof Bertha Osei-Hwedie reminded the new executives that good leaders should be role models to their followers.

She challenged them to work hard on their academic work in order to perform well academically.

The President of GRASAG-GIMPA, Mr Apetorgbor promised that he will lead the association as a vehicle to fight for the rights and welfare of students.

He also noted that through effective education and proactive policies, GRASAG-GIMPA was determined to build a welcoming community for all postgraduate students and the entire GIMPA fraternity.

Mr Apetorgbor recounted that inasmuch as they would want to be seen as visionary and proactive in their dealings in managing the affairs of GRASAG-GIMPA, they would not forget to keep accuracy in their timing and positive attitude in handling their records and activities.
