Speaking on the topic “FASA, its inception and prospects,” Mr. Richard Ansah, a lecturer in the Department of Classics and Philosophy, intimated that the ever challenging job market demands that students develop their full potentials, arguing that, that can only be achieved if students make good use of their time.
“The road to success is very demanding and as students, you must put your shoulders on the wheel so that you can excel. As students in the Humanities, you are versatile, but you must respond to opportunities that avail themselves to you” he said.
Other side attractions included jokes, refreshment and Azonto/Al Kayida battle featuring some of the finest artiste on campus such as Ante B, Willi Evans, Jay Ford and Kofi Farri.
