Ghana can be a Mecca for African students – Commissioner

The Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA) has expressed its readiness to work with Ghanaian universities to position education as a veritable export offer in the non-traditional export basket, writes Uchechukwu Nnaike for This Day.

The Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria, Rashid Bawa, stated this at the first GEPA Students’ Recruitment Fair, organised in Lagos, in collaboration with 16 universities in Ghana and with the support of Access Bank.

Bawa, who was represented by the Consul General of Ghana in Lagos, Hajia Samata Bukari, said Ghanaian tertiary institutions have established and distinguished themselves as centres of quality education and learning, attracting students from all over the world, with particular reference to African students. “With a foreign student population of over 5,000 in our tertiary institutions, Ghana is well positioned to become the Mecca for students from Africa, the Caribbean and many parts of the world,” he said.
