Be committed and disciplined in your service to the nation - Sissala East MP to fresh graduates
The Member of Parliament for Sissala East Constituency, Amidu Chinnia Issahaku, has urged fresh graduates, at a graduation ceremony of Dr Hilla Liman Technical University, to be committed and disciplined in their service to the nation as that is cardinal point in propelling the development of the enation.

Mr Issahaku, who is also the Deputy Minister for Water and Sanitation designate, gave the admonishing at the second congregation of the Dr Hila Liman Technical University at the weekend.
He said government has prioritised technical education to improve on skill acquisition for jobs creation as the government alone cannot employ all graduates churned out from the tertiary institutions.

Professor Insah also said the government has taken steps to equip the workshops at the school to improve practical training at the school.
The Chairman of the Council of the university, Professor Daniel Bagah, entreated the students and the staff of the university to follow the due process in getting their grievances resolves.
He observed that some students and staff have the attitude of breaking protocols to seek redress from the highest authority of the university or resorted to the law court to seek redress, which he said is soiling the reputation of the school.
In all, 311 students graduated from various courses of study including engineering and business.
Madam Ruth Abaidoo graduated as the best female student while Mr John Bosco Kuunibe was the overall best graduating student.
