Adehye Hall Celebrates 54th Hall Week

Adehye Hall, affectionately called Royals, has climaxed its 54th Hall Week with a colorful grand durbar. The week-long celebration was on the theme " Women in Enterprise Development: The Role of Tertiary Education." Speaking at the grand durbar, a banker and a retired army officer, Nana Kwesi Amoako, advised students to be creative and innovative in creating jobs for themselves so as to reduce unemployment in the country. He urged students to come out with creative and innovative skills to make themselves self-reliant. He advised Royals to seize opportunities available to them on campus to start their own businesses. “You don’t need to wait and get out of school and be jumping from one office to the other looking for a job, where you are going to have problems with managers and directors and CEOs trying to go to bed with you before they can help you with a job,” he advised. Mr. Amoako called on young entrepreneurs to find a mentor in life, adding that mentorship would help them to realise their dreams and achieve greater heights. He advised students to be very smart in life and to be time conscious in all their endeavours, emphasising that "time lost can never be regained." The Hall Warden of Adehye Hall, Ms. Paulina Yaa Kwafoa, in her address, advised students to refrain from all negative tendencies that could jeopardize their academic lives. She said Adehye Hall would not compromise the health of its residents and would continue to stand tall as the neatest Hall in the University. Consequently, Ms. Kwafoa urged all residents to keep the Hall clean to prevent any diseases. She explained that the Hall ensures that training was given to Royals in order to make them women of substance. “I must confess that Adehye Hall inculcates good virtues in her Royals to excel everywhere. The Hall continues to ensure that the Royals are trained in all spheres of their lives, traditionally, culturally and intellectually", she said, to cheers from the audience. Ms. Kwafoa bemoaned the lack of wardrobes as one of the major challenges facing the Hall. "I mentioned it(wardrobes) at last year's Hall Week durbar that majority of our students’ wardrobes are dilapidated, forcing most of our students to keep their belongings on their bed", said the Hall Warden, who was clad in the Hall traditional cloth. The Hall President, Ms. Mahalia Esi Bamford, extolled the remarkable achievements the Hall had chalked during her presidency. She called on students to take their studies seriously and work hard to take positions of trust in the society. The Hall durbar, which was interspersed with colourful cultural performances by the Adehye Cultural Troupe, saw the enstoolment of a new queen mother with the stool name Obaahemaa Rachael A. Coffie. As part of activities marking the Hall Week, the Hall donated 30 packs of toilet roll and medical equipment to the Kids' Unit of the University Health Services.
