CEO of the Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors, Senyo Hosi, has stirred controversy during a Q&A at an alumni homecoming conference to mark the 70th anniversary of the University of Ghana when he made some contentious statements.
The outspoken CEO who has earned three degrees including a PhD from the University of Ghana said he would not hire any graduate from Ghana’s premier university because students complete school with '‘degrees and not an education’’ .
He emphasized that the university does not equip ‘‘people with the skill on how to live’’.
He continued: ‘'This is a university of mediocrity. Look at the panelists, their tables, no plates for them to even keep their books on…and water…they have to put it on the floor.’’
He further stated that the University of Ghana is not ‘‘doing anything that is relevant for the future’’ and added that he would not hire even students who complete the University of Ghana with Master’s degrees.
Senyo Hosi also called for some of the old lecturers in the university to be laid off for fresh and creative minds to fill their positions.
He challenged management of the university to live beyond its past glory and work hard to give its products viable employable skills.
