The Vice-Chancellor of Pentecost University, Prof. Kwabena Agyapong-Kodua has asked all past students to renew their commitment to the University. According to him, the commitment of the alumni will encourage equally good students to choose the University thereby increasing their numbers in the corporate world for strategic networks. “When this happens, you will have many of yourselves in key positions thereby creating strategic networks and opportunities for yourselves and to some extent the University…Prof. Agyapong-Kodua added.
The VC made these remarks when he met a section of the alumni of the University on campus on Thursday 11th August 2022. The Vice-Chancellor praised all alumni of the University and touted their contributions to businesses in Ghana and beyond. He enumerated some of the strategic places they work including the Ghana Revenue Authority, giant audit firms, indigenous and transnational commercial banks, influential media houses, The Church of Pentecost among others.
He added some also build on their PU foundation for higher education in some of the most prestigious Universities abroad while others work with firms with global outreach out there. He added that, “we are not only aware of the influential places our past students work in but also the testimonies of their capabilities and the performance of those who are self-employed are what inspire us the most.”
The VC therefore used the opportunity to call on all past students to continually rally around the University and enhance their commitment to the renewed vision to make it A+. He concluded by charging those present and all to take interest in the activities of the University and be proud to share the success stories that emerge from time to time.
The meeting was meant to improve upon the engagement between Pentecost University and its past students. In attendance were a cross-section of prominent alumni including Dr. Abraham Nyebar, an alumnus who holds a doctorate degree in Finance from the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, and Dr. Christian Tsekpoe, also an alumnus of the University who went on to earn a PhD from the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies, UK.
