He shared his personal life experiences with the grandaunts and noted that God had a reason for bringing them to CSUC and exposing them to their respective academic programmes.

Postgraduate Education and National Development

Commenting on the theme for the graduation, “Postgraduate Education and National Development”, Prof. Agyemang noted that Ghana has been blessed with abundant natural resources yet is affected by “resource curse phenomenon”. That is, the exploration and the mining of the abundant resources have sadly not resulted in corresponding economic development. On the contrast, he was of the view that indeed, no nation can rely solely on its natural resource to develop. In fact, the surest way to develop is to maximise the nation’s potential “intellectual property”. Based on this premise, he charged the grandaunts to demonstrate the critical and analytical skills which are key ingredients of intellectual property and is the focus of postgraduate studies, to create jobs to foster national development.
