Under the auspices of the United Garment Makers Association of Ghana in collaboration with representatives from the Ketu Municipality, Dr Donald Senanu Agumenu honoured an invitation to a special graduation ceremony held on Sunday 29th May at the SS Peter & Paul Roman Catholic Church in Dzodze.
Dr Agumenu donated full-fledged sewing machine units to each of the 13 graduands, urging them to efficiently put to good use the skills acquired during apprenticeship and create wealth for themselves and society.
He called for a well thought out policy framework by all stakeholders to develop and harness human capital within Ketu North and the country at large. Dr Agumenu reiterated the need for developing cutting edge skills in adherence to new trends in the fashion world.
He also advised the graduands and potential trainees to consider the fashion business as a credible means of job creation and poverty alleviation.
“This profession shouldn’t be considered as a job or career for the school dropouts or the needy,” Dr Agumenu pointed out, saying that fashion designers and their enterprise is a multi-billion business enclave in today’s world that we can all exploit in developing our society.
