The Pro Vice Chancellor in charge of students and Academic Affairs of the University of Ghana, Professor Gordon Awandare has called on industries to stop the importation of labour into Ghana.
He said the practice of bringing in foreigners to come and work in Ghanaian industries when the same professionals can be sourced in Ghana is a bad practice and draining the economy.
He argued that industries are always making excuses that the Universities are not producing graduates for the job market. This assertion the professor noted is palpable false.
Speaking to TV3 on the sideline of the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the University of Ghana and Nestle Ghana, Professor Awandare said the University will continue to build more industry partnerships to give practical training to students.
“The University of Ghana wants to train students for the 21st century and tailor the needs of graduates to meet the demands of the job market”, he stressed.
