A seasoned university lecturer, Dr Dickson Dorm Tsey, was on Sunday inducted into office as the Principal of the E.P College of Education (AMECO), Amedzofe, in the Ho West District of the Volta Region.
Until his appointment, Dr Tsey, 43, was a senior lecturer at the Department of Sculpture Technology at the Takoradi Technical University.
The induction ceremony was jointly performed by the acting Moderator of the E.P Church, Ghana, Rev Samuel K. Amoako and the Clerk of the Assembly of the church, Rev Dr. E. A. Adjei.
Rev Amoako entreated the new principal to work hard, with God as his guide to lift high the flag of the college.
In his maiden address, Dr Tsey said that team work would be his hallmark, as he would solicit the contribution of every staff member and also collaborate with the E.P Church to move AMECO forward.
“AMECO was once a treasured institution with a unique identity, and so, we must all work together as a team to regain that glory of the college.”
The Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, who was a special guest at the event, gave the assurance that the Volta Regional Coordination Council would support the 73-year-old college in its efforts to acquire a modern kitchen and also improve infrastructure on the campus.
Pursuant to that, he pledged 50 bags of cement to AMECO.
Dr Letsa said that the role of colleges of education in the overall socio-economic development of the nation could not be over-emphasized as “it is from these colleges that the foundation is laid for our young ones to acquire the essential skills necessary for further training, and mentoring of the next generation”.
The success of the E.P Church and the E. P College of Education in producing quality teachers, he noted, was the result of effective leadership of the institution over the years.
The regional minister implored the staff and students of AMECO to cooperate with the principal to get the college to greater heights.
