Start Your Own Businesses After Graduation - Bawumia Tells Fresh Graduates

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has announced that all newborn babies birthed in Ghana will have a Ghana card number within a few months.

Dr Bawumia said the actual card will be issued when the child is above age 6 when the biometrics are fully formed.

In a report filed by Starrnews.com, Bawumia said that forms part of digital reforms being undertaken at the Births and Deaths Registry.

This he said would make it more in tune with the times and provide better protected information on the citizens and residents of Ghana.

The Vice President, who made the disclosure while speaking on the theme “TRANSFORMING AN ECONOMY THROUGH DIGITALIZATION- THE GHANA STORY” on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at the Ashesi University, Berekuso, said the transformation at the Birth and Deaths Registry was welcome news.

“Easily one of the most depressing visits I have paid to a government office during my time as Vice President was to the Births and Deaths Registry headquarters. There clearly was insufficient investment in the institution. It was messy and it was sad. It turned out that the Births and Deaths Registry had three separate databases as registers for births and deaths and these databases were in silos. It is not surprising therefore that corruption and fake birth certificates thrived in this environment,” he noted.

“Thankfully, the process of digitization of the records is almost complete and the three databases have been cleaned up and integrated. Furthermore, we are integrating the births and deaths register with the databases of Ghana Health Service, National Identification Authority, Ghana Statistical Service, Immigration and the Police so that the record of births and deaths should be consistent across all these databases.”

2021 NSMQ: Prempeh College Beat Presec And Keta To Win Competition

2021 NSMQ: Prempeh College Beat Presec And Keta To Win Competition

The much touted phrase ‘serving a living God’ by the Presbyterian Boys Secondary School did not materialise as God, instead decided to ‘Glory5’ Prempeh College.

The ‘Amanfuo’ has been crowned the champions of the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) after attaining a substantial victory over the ‘odade3s’ and the ‘Dzoloalians (Keta SHTS) in the final contest.

The race, right from the beginning of the first round, saw a keen and stiff competition by all the three schools as they lock horns neck to neck for a lead.

Although Prempeh College won, it was a super tough five rounds for all the three schools.

At the end of that tough round, Presec-Legon scored 17 points, followed by Prempeh College with 16 points while Keta SHTS garnered 15 points.

The second round’s speed race got intense as all the finalists, especially Ketasco, scrambled to accumulate points.

But the ‘Christian gentlemen’ still maintained their dominance with a five-point margin ahead of Prempeh.

The ‘Amanfuor’ finished with 21 points while Presec beat them with 26 points.

Problem of the Day favoured the contestants of Prempeh College as they secured a perfect score of 10 points.

That feat landed them the Prudential Life NSMQ Star award worth GH₵4,000. Each of the three contestants will receive GH¢1,000 with their teacher getting the rest.

Both Presec-Legon and Keta SHTS scored seven points each at the end of the third round.

The True or False round had the ‘Dzolalians’ substituting Francisca Lamini with James Lutterodt. Presec equally made a substitution for Joel Aboagye to take over from Henry Otumfuor.

Although they did not make any substitution, Prempeh had almost all their answers right in the fourth round.

Prempeh College’s Evans Oppong ‘magically’ kept his cool to conveniently respond to the questions correctly.

At the end of the fourth round, Prempeh took over from their fierce rivals with only a point-margin.

The highly-anticipated race was finally decided in the last round where the boys from the ‘University of Sofoline’ proved their mettle to defeat the Presecans.

Eden Obeng was quick to answer the first riddle correctly to put Prempeh ahead of Presec.

As if that was it all; he made it matter most when he ‘tamed’ the Presec boys by quickly answering the second riddle right!

You can just imagine it. Presec’s Joel Aboagye attempted to answer the third riddle but woefully lost it. He, however, got the last riddle right but that was not enough to grant them any better chance of winning the coveted prize.

The dream of claiming the trophy for the seventh time got thwarted, alas!

That sent the supporters of Prempeh into frenzy as they roared in massive jubilation in the KNUST’s Great Hall. The host and win agenda finally became a reality when the ‘Seniors’ floored the boys with an outstanding brilliance.

Five! Five!! Five is all that’s running through the minds and lips of all those who supported Prempeh’s journey in the 2021 NSMQ from the beginning through to the finals.

The trophy has been retained in Kumasi.

At the end of the contest, Prempeh College amassed 53 points while Presec-Legon accumulated 49 points with Ketasco managing 30 points.

Keta Senior High Technical School could not lift the first trophy but it is doubtless that they have made a name for themselves after rising through the stages to feature in the finals for the first time.

And here are the winners for the 2021 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ), Prempeh College. It is now time to glori-FIVE the Lord.
