KNUST Students receive award of €10,000 for innovative business plans

Innovative Business – It was indeed a night of glitz and glamour as two group of students at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) received €10,000 for innovative business plans.

This was at the third edition of the “Green Entrepreneurship Awards” ceremony held in Kumasi. The awards – an initiative of the German Corporation (GTZ), seeks to encourage university students to come up with brilliant ideas to solve environment-related challenges, while creating jobs for themselves and others.

The first group – comprising of Michael Ampomah, Jeffery Appiagyei and Jerome Lavie, have set up a business – “EvaTECH Ecooler Ventures” that deals in fruit and vegetable storage.

“Nonafate Company Limited” jointly operated by Somba Yabido, Salifu Adams and Amartey Kissieh, has been dealing in environmentally-friendly and efficient irrigation pumps.

Each group were presented with €5,000 to grow their businesses to create wealth and jobs as they helped to safeguard the environment.

Professor Mark Adom-Asamoah, Provost of the College of Engineering, KNUST, said 23 student teams submitted business plans for vetting by experts in this year’s event. The experts were drawn from the KNUST, University of Cape Coast (UCC) and Bonn-Rein-Sieg University, Germany.

Prof. Adom-Asamoah indicated that entrepreneurship was the driver for prosperity in any developing society. He therefore applauded the North Rhein-Westphalia State Government in Germany and the GIZ for strong support they were giving to Ghanaian universities to develop the entrepreneurial skills of students.

The Provost encouraged developing countries to forge partnerships to speed up industrialization and overcome the dependence on aid.

Prof. Imoro Braimah, Provost of the KNUST College of Humanities and Social Sciences, said the days when university students were trained for academic purposes were over.

It was important, he said, to focus on entrepreneurial training for job creation.

Dr. Emmanuel W. Ramde, Director of the Brew-Hammond Energy Centre, announced that the team of experts and supervisors would be mentoring the award-winners to sustain their business plans.

This, he said, was going to be done in partnership with the KNUST Centre for Business Development and other technical units within the University.

Students Suspended For Engaging In Sexual Relationships

The disciplinary committee at Islamic University in Uganda, Mbale campus, has suspended 23 students undertaking different courses on allegations of engaging in sexual relationships, contrary to the university regulations.

The university coordinator, Dr. Sulait Kabali, who also doubles as secretary of the disciplinary committee, disclosed n Monday that the students were found guilty of breach of university rules and regulations.

“The students were found guilty of coupling and having sex on campus, which is contrary to the University rules and regulations, Mr. Kabali, said, adding that other students were also found guilty of theft of property, consuming alcohol and other narcotic drugs, pregnancy and staging acts of violence at the campus.

 According to the letter dated April 14, 2018, the students were reportedly found in the dark corners on different occasions engaging in love affairs.

“During the cross-examining to which you were subjected to, the above Disciplinary Sub-Committee and based on your oral and written submission in which you stated that you were found in darkness engaging in love affairs, you were found guilty of having committed the above-stated offence hence having violated the above-cited rule,” reads part of the letter addressed to the suspended students.

Mr Kabali said the suspension, which will last for one year, should act as a strong warning to other students, saying University administration will not hesitate to expel any student who breaches the rules and regulation governing the University.

The suspended students, who included finalists, were about to sit for their examinations.

The affected students were given one week to appeal if they felt the suspension was not just or fair and indeed Ms Rehema Katono, the public relations officer, acknowledged that the University disciplinary committee will soon sit again to have a final conclusion on the students, who have appealed against their dismissal.

“At the moment, we cannot declare that we have suspended or discontinued them because the final conclusion has not been made as yet regarding their appeals,” she said.

One of the affected students, who preferred anonymity for fear that his appeal may be revoked, said disciplinary committee was too harsh in its judgment.

“I find it so astonishing that the committee based its judgment on an offence I committed two years ago when I had just joined campus. The punishment is too harsh,” he said.

The university is governed by sharia.

According to Ms. Katono, if a student is interested in the other for a sexual relationship, they should apply to the Dawah committee for consent and be allowed to marry officially.

But even as a married couple, you’re not allowed to hug, kiss on the campus or sit with someone of the opposite sex for more than 10 minutes without the third party.

There is also no free mixing at the university between female and male students during lectures and in the compound.

“We are not allowed to sit together with our male counterpart and chat for long. They are always monitoring us,” one of the students said.

A 12-Year-Old African Student Built An App to Help Lost Kids Get Back Home

Help Lost Kids – In a country that is battling its own share of economic setbacks, some bright lights continue to persist. Tomisin Ogunnubi is one of such bright lights who has brought forward a solution to a problem that she noticed.

A number of thought leaders have spoken of the advantages that a country can benefit from when girls are involved in tech and you need to look no further than this 12-year-old girl to back up those statements.

Nigerian student Tomisin Ogunnubi finished up on the development of her Android mobile tracking app, My Locator. The motive behind her development of the app was the need to help lost kids find their way back home.

Tomisin worked on the app under the supervision of an Information and Communications Technology partnership between her school, Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls, and New Horizons Computer Learning Centre. With them, she was able to get the skills and knowledge she needed to build the app she always wanted to.

The app also allows children to save a location, for instance, their house or school and will direct them to the saved location from wherever they are.

The My Locator App also features an ‘alert’ button, which when pressed will alert the Lagos State Emergency Services.

The app will call the services as well as show the child’s location so that they can get the help they need.

Scores of parents have already downloaded the app on their Android phones and have since recommended it to others.

Ogunnubi recently graduated with 16 merit awards in subjects like Mathematics, English, French and Science and Technology, including being named as the best graduating student of the year.

The young app creator, now 14,  has since been encouraging kids on how to be creative in their own way.
