The Acting Manager for Human Capital of the Petroleum Commission, Mrs Susana Adjei-Addo in the Company of two officials of the Commission has paid a courtesy call on the Vice Chancellor of UMaT. According to Mrs Adjei-Addo, the visit was to familiarise herself with happenings in the University and to discuss issues concerning Graduate recruitment for the Petroleum sector in the country. She indicated that a good number of UMaT graduates were undertaking their National Service with the Commission and that they were doing very great. Mrs Adjei-Addo also emphasised that there were a lot of opportunities at the Upstream Petroleum Sector which the Commission was doing everything possible to get Ghanaians to take up the jobs offered there. She added that it was very difficult for the Commission to get qualified Ghanaian’s to occupy the opportunities that are offered by the International Oil Companies and so the Companies always depended on expatriates for those job offers.

Welcoming the delegation, the Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma, expressed his gratitude to them for coming for the visit and to understand what was going on in UMaT. He told them that UMaT was giving the best practical training to her students who were doing great at their various work places. He however expressed surprise at the assertion that the Commission was not finding qualified Ghanaians for the jobs in the Petroleum Sector. Prof Kuma shared some of the successes UMaT had chalked which the visiting team were delighted about.

Mrs Adjei-Addo further said that the Commission will support the University’s annual Innovation and Career Fair and also assist students of UMaT for short-term internship programmes and talent development. She again indicated that the students who get the opportunity to do National Service with the Commission would be assisted to acquire certifications required by the Oil Companies for employment. She added that all these plans were being put in place to promote local content agenda and the localisation programme of the Commission. As part of the visit Mrs Adjei-Addo donated an amount GH¢5,000.00 as the Commission’s support for the University’s 5th Innovation and Career Fair held on Friday, 5th April, 2019.

The Vice Chancellor thanked Mrs Adjei-Addo and the Commission for the support and said that the University was ready to collaborate with the Petroleum Commission to push the localisation agenda forward by running programmes in areas identified by the Commission as relevant to the industry to help in the localisation drive.
