The Minister of Works and Housing, Hon. Samuel Atta Akyea, has underscored the importance of Ghanaian Architects for their role in the development of the country.
As Architects, one area that requires your contribution will be in the area of the accelerated National Housing Programme where affordable and adaptable housing design concepts targeted at making housing accessible to the low-to-middle income earner will be needed” he said.
Hon. Atta Akyea was speaking at the 20th Induction Ceremony of Newly Qualified Architects organized by Architects Registration Council in Accra.
In all, 60 Architects were officially inducted and out of which, women topped the three overall best students. Miss Hanson Corretta Odura is the overall best student, followed by Miss Nana Ama Kasanga and Boateng Afia Serwaa as the third overall best candidate.
Arc. Ernest Banning, Chief Executive Officer of Modula Group and the Chairperson for the event, advised the inductees to have a positive attitude towards work in their new profession because the job market is full of competition.
