Mr Louis S.K Apetor, the SRC President of the graduating group in his speech took time to recount some fond memories they had on campus with the Faculty of the school. His speech sent laughter on the faces of all and sundry, especially Faculty and Graduands.
As Idiosyncratic of every Awards event, there were some graduands who registered unofficially their disapproval of some awardees, with others also expressing their displeasure on only the Certificates received by awardees without other motivational prices attached to it.
The Registrar of the School, Mr Michael Fosu Faakye officially ended the glamour inundated event by calling on graduands to sing and file-out with Methodist Hymn 413,“A charge to keep I have”.

One can blatantly see or feel the quagmire(state of confusion) final year students find themselves in when making the very critical decisions of destinations for attachment.
Uploading…It is an undisputed factthat the decision one will make today has the propensity to determine the success or ruin of one’s career. I must first acknowledge the Great orientation effort by Management for us(level 400’s).
Below are 6 cogent points I believe one must consider in making this salient decision, in addition to the enormous beneficial advice given to us by our father Mr Listowell and faculty.
1. LEARNING ENVIRONMENT(room for mistakes)
The Livio English dictionary defines environment as a particular social setting, arena or condition”.
Why Learning Environment? Learning Environment because, the last time I checked, prior to the 2016 General Elections, reknowned, eloquent, articulate celebrated Super Morning Show Host on Joy Fm, Kojo Yankson was given a two weeks suspension for an offence of cracking a joke on the incumbent President then, Mr John Dramani Mahama. From a hindsight, the issue would probably have been no issue had it occurred in a budding or young media house.
Therefore in making this all important career choice, I suggest we consider destinations that have enough room to tolerate our mistakes.
Adaptability connotes one’s ability to fit or suit a place or purpose. It would be very disingenuous of me to quote the exact time spand one will take to adopt to a media house or an attached institution.
I suggest one should carryout a personal adaptability assessment on him or herself, devoid of peer influence to determine how easy or cumbersome(difficult) it will take you to adapt, fit or suit into what they term as the modus operandi(mode of operations) of a ‘big’or ‘small’ institution.
Never forget, adaptability is relative, so don’t be influenced by your peers.
3. PROXIMITY & COST
Proximity denotes distance while cost as we all know engulfs finance or money. The Distance and it cost in accessing your attached institution is very imperative, and therefore humbly suggest that it informs your choice. Don’t forget,I maybe quite oblivious, but am yet to know any institution especially media house that will pay an ‘attachee’ immediately after commencing work. Well!! you may the exceptional one
Least I forget, no competent media house or institution tolerates absenteeism.
Hmm relevance, would it be important to explain relevance?Well!! Talking about relevance, please sincerely ask yourself this questions.
1. What is your area of specialization(what do you do best)?
2. What is your dream institution’s area of specialty?
3. Is there any nexus or link between your area of specialty and theirs(preferred institution)?
4. If there is, great!!
5. If there isn’t, please advice yourself.
Again, I guess no need to worry my dictionary. Exposure is simply getting exposed. As far as I appear to be a proponent for budding or young learning environments, I can confidently speak without any sense of cynicism that a non-visioned, non objective or goal oriented free media house or institution can jeopardize, kill and burry your vision(career).
Please have in mind exposure while you make this decision, but never forget under exposure is better than over exposure. Over exposure can disintegrate your body, spirit and soul, even the unknown infinitesimal part of you. Please let’s be extra careful.
This point is quite synonymous to my earlier point relevance. Benchmark according to the Livio English Dictionary is “a standard by which something is evaluated or measured”. Don’t forget, every competent institution has it already set standards or benchmarks. It will never be compromised or diluted to fit or suit in anyone.
It is either you are ready to operate within the set benchmarks or standards, or find yourself completing your attachment prematurely(early before everyone).
Woow!! I almost forgot guys, on a brighter note, you can gather an unprecedented momentum(vim or morale) and raise higher the set benchmarks or standards in your attached institution.
Dont be pessimistic, YOU CAN DO IT.
Please note, THE BIG 6 POINTS TO ATTACHMENT SUCCESS is not mandatory but free suggestions.
As our Papa, Mr Listowell always say,not the best students always excel, but the humble.
With Determination, Humility(readiness to learn) & Favor(from God), we will all come out victorious. Congratulations to us all for successful completion.

The Champions League quarter-final draw has been made and there are, as you’d expect, some interesting match-ups.
The final pairing saw Liverpool drawn with Man City, meaning that there is an all-Premier League clash to look forward to. Jurgen Klopp’s side are the top scorers in the competition so far with 28 goals and City are no slouches either. Indeed, if their previous meetings this year are anything to go by, this will be a goal-fest.
Holders Real Madrid have been drawn against Juventus in a repeat of last season’s final, while Barcelona have been handed an assignment against Roma. Sevilla, who are taking part in the quarter-final of the Champions League for the first time must travel to Germany to face Jupp Heynkes’ Bayern Munich.
Which quarter-final match are you most excited about? Let us know!
The draw in full:
Barcelona vs Roma

China’s Xi allowed to remain ‘president for life’ as term limits removed China has approved the removal of term limits for its leader, in a move that effectively allowsXi Jinping to remain as president for life.
The vote was widely regarded as a rubber-,stamping exercise. Two delegates voted against the change and three abstained, out of 2,964 votes.
China had imposed a two-term limit on its president since the 1990s.
But Mr Xi, who would have been due to step down in 2023, defied the tradition of presenting a potential successor during October’s Communist Party Congress. Instead, he consolidated his political power as the party voted to enshrine his name and political ideology in the party’s constitution – elevating his status to the level of its founder, Chairman Mao.
On paper, the congress is the most powerful legislative body in China – similar to the parliament in other nations. But it was widely believed that it would approve what it was told to. In depth: Xi, the president who lived in a cave
How China’s ‘two sessions’ meetings work A Chinese move that many expected Xi forever?
Analysis by Stephen McDonell, BBC China correspondent in Beijing. It is now hard to see Xi Jinping being challenged in any way whatsoever.
He has amassed power the likes of which has not been seen since Chairman Mao Zedong. Only five years ago Beijing was being ruled by a collective leadership. Under ex-President Hu Jintao you could imagine differing views being expressed in the then nine-member Politburo Standing Committee.
There was a feeling that Mr Hu needed to please various factions within the Communist Party and it seemed that every 10 years a new leader would come along with their own people in a process of smooth transition.
From today all this has gone. The constitution has been altered to allow Xi Jinping to remain as president beyond two terms and they would not have gone to this much trouble if that was not exactly what he intended to do.
There has been no national debate as to whether a leader should be allowed to stay on for as long as they choose. Quietly but surely Xi Jinping has changed the way his country is governed, with himself well and truly at the core.
Rare dissent The issue is not, however, without controversy. Online censors in China have been blocking discussion around the topic, including images of Winnie the Pooh. Social media users have taken to using the cartoon character to represent Mr Xi.
One government critic described the proposal in an open letter last month as a “farce” , in a rare show of public dissent.
Former state newspaper editor Li Datong wrote that scrapping term limits for the president and vice-president would sow the seeds of chaos – in a message sent to some members of the national congress.
“I couldn’t bear it any more. I was discussing with my friends and we were enraged. We have to voice our opposition,” he told BBC Chinese.
State media, however, have portrayed the changes as much-needed reform.
US President Donald Trump was criticised by some commentators for seeming to approve of Mr Xi’s unlimited rule, saying on Monday: “President for life… I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot some day.”
At a political rally on Saturday, Mr Trump insisted he had merely been joking during a fundraiser, ,and that his comments were represented unfairly by some media.
Xi Jinping thought ,Mr Xi’s possible third term is not the only item ,the National People’s Congress is likely to approve. It was also expected to: confirm China’s new government line-up for the next five years, kicking off Xi Jinping’s second term as president ratify a law to set up a new powerful anti-corruption agency ,ratify the inclusion of the president’s political philosophy – “Xi Jinping thought” – in the constitution
Xi Jinping thought is the ideology approved by the Communist Party last October. Officially, it is “Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era”.
Schoolchildren, college students and staff at state factories will have to study the political ideology, which the Communist Party is trying to portray as a new chapter for modern China.

Mr Xi became president in 2012, and quickly consolidated personal power while cementing China as the regional superpower.
He also fought corruption, punishing more than a million party members – which has helped his popularity among some.
At the same time, however, China has clamped down on many emerging freedoms, increasing its state surveillance and censorship programs.
Critics also say Mr Xi has used the anti-corruption purge to sideline political rivals.
