    Hon. Yankah said this at AUCC’S historic graduation ceremony held on December 10, 2011 at the Discovery House campus of the University during which AUCC graduated its very first batch of B.A. degree students (46 students). The occasion was also used to graduate the University’s 8th batch of Diploma Students (33 students).

    Speaking on the theme for the ceremony “Communication is the Major Driving Force in Today’s World”, Hon Kojo Yankah stressed that “the unnecessary political tension generated on the airwaves are mainly due to poor communication.” He added that the use of trained communicators by politicians will enable them to have the time to attend to other national issues.

    Also speaking on the theme, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof. Ernest Aryeetey appealed to media practitioners to be guided by the ethics of their profession when educating and informing society. He advised the media professionals to avoid using the power of the media to disseminate information that would generate fear and panic among the general public. Prof. Aryeetey added that the theme for the ceremony was very apt because since time immemorial, both verbal and written communication have facilitated the transformation of the human society.

    In an address that was read on his behalf by Dr. Emmanuel Newman, Head of the Planning, Research and Policy Development Department of the National Council for Tertiary Education, the Deputy Minister of Education, Hon. Mahama Ayariga, encouraged the graduates to use the knowledge that they had acquired at AUCC to help in the development of their communities by focusing on issues of national development.
