Party-Government Engagements: Scholarship Secretariat boss Kingsley Agyemang visits party officers

The visit forms part of an initiative, introduced by the current NPP executives and styled the Party-Government Engagements, which are intended to bridge the gap between government appointees and party officials

The Registrar of the Scholarship Secretariat, Dr Kingsley Agyemang, paid a visit to the national officers and staff of the New Patriotic Party on Monday (3 October 2022) at the NPP national headquarters in Asylum Down, Accra.

The visit was part of an initiative, introduced by the current executives, dubbed the Party-Government Engagements, meant to bridge the gap between government appointees and NPP officials, in the party’s quest to mobilise its rank and file and secure a third consecutive electoral victory in 2024.

Dr Agyemang, who was accompanied by Richard Gyamfi, head of international relations and partnership at the Scholarship Secretariat, interacted with the NPP national organiser, Henry Nana Boakye; the deputy general secretary Dr Antoinette Tsiboe-Darko; the NPP director of finance and administration, William Amoah; the director of research and elections, Evans Nimako; the deputy director of research Dr Nyame Baafi and other staff at the party headquarters.

The national organiser thanked the Scholarship Secretariat Registrar for visiting and commended him for transforming the Secretariat by successfully rolling out many interventions, including digitisation of scholarship application procedures and decentralisation of the scholarship award process to district level.

Lawyer Nana Boakye urged the Registrar to take steps, as soon as is practically possible, to address the legitimate concerns of government scholarship beneficiaries, such as delays in releasing their subventions.

He also commended Dr Agyemang for doing an excellent job of widening the scholarship net and implored him to do more to increase scholarship opportunities for Ghana’s youth and the members of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) in particular.

The Scholarship Secretariat boss assured the party leaders that his organisation is committed to collaborating with the party and all stakeholders to discharge the mandate of administering government scholarships both locally and abroad.
