The CEO of the Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD), Senyo Hosi has descended on the management of the University of Ghana over their approach in running the school.
He said the management has failed to ensure that the school produces graduates who are relevant to the job market.
“You guys are not thinking…You are churning out people with degrees not people with an education, not people with skills…Your students don’t have the thinking. They are robots. Even the robot, they can’t even do it,” Mr. Hosi stressed.
He stressed that he will not hire most MBA graduates from the University of Ghana because they lacked relevant skills.
Speaking at an open event as part of activities to mark the University’s 70th anniversary, Senyo Hosi said there was no way the school will make progress if some of the school’s management and lecturers whom he said were to old, are not made to exit the school.
“Respectfully, the old men running this school, they are too many. Get them out!”, he exclaimed, adding that, “I beg you, you guys are not doing anything that is relevant for the future.”
Mr. Hosi, further stressed that although he had acquired three academic degrees from the University of Ghana, he will not hire MBA graduates from the school because they are not fit for work.
He said the school was only thriving on past glories and needs fresh ideas to elevate it to a more relevant status.
“If you want to fix it, forget about this your 70 years….forget it the world has moved on,” he said.
Despite his appointment as an ambassador for the [email protected] celebrations, Mr. Hosi criticized the organizers of the celebrations for what he believes was a poor job in getting alumni together to attend the program in their numbers.
“Look at the number of people her….What kind of communication went on to promote this programme,” he quizzed.
Citing among other things the fact that panellists were not provided with water at the event, he said: “this is a school of mediocrity.”
