Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, Professor Anthony Afful Broni, says the University is prepared to make sacrifices to enlarge the budgetary allocation for sports as a way of encouraging other students to take up the challange since sports plays a key role in the development of the mind and personality.
Speaking to Citi News after members of team UEW who placed second at the just ended GUSA games presented their trophies to the University, the Vice Chancellor commended the team for their efforts in winning trophies for the University at the games and added that the university’s strong belief in a student-centered approach is what propelled them to place second at the games.
“These are some of the things that you can always remember people for. In fact, it was going to cost me having to neglect a few important things but having been a Pro VC before, I have had to even reprimand some lecturers who ignored the mandatory period of sports.
It shows that we value it with our hearts and our minds but I have been following the activities and in fact, if it is possible to make some sacrifices to enlarge the budgetary allocation for sports we are committed to do that.”
“We managed to achieve this because of our strong believe in one of the big themes that have been added to the existing theme of student centeredness”
“Whatever it is that students will benefit from is what I will spend my energy and my time on.”
Chairman for the Amalgamated Sports Club of the University of Education,Winneba Kwame Kyere Diabour was optimistic that the University would emerge the overall winner at the next GUSA games.
“We will keep on training and will see if we can add some additional players to beef up our squard for the next GUSA games.”
