UBA Ghana launches essay competition
UBA Foundation on Friday, September 30, 2016 held a press launch in Ghana to call for entries for the 2016 edition of the UBA Foundation National Essay Competition in the country.

The MD/CEO of UBA Ghana, Abiola Bauwah expressed her gratitude to the press and members of the public who were present at the launch. She appealed to the Directors of the Ghana Education Services who were present to help raise awareness about the competition, amongst the school education system. Mrs. Bauwah said that she hopes that this year’s entries would match or even surpass what is collated in other African countries where the competition is also holding.

MD/CEO of UBA Foundation, Ijeoma Aso reiterated UBA’s commitment to fostering educational development in Africa, especially in countries where UBA has presence. She joined Abiola to appeal to the Ghana Educational Services (GES) to help create awareness in schools about this laudable initiative.
Ms. Araba Zentey, a Deputy Director of the GES, who declared the launch open for 2016, stated her commitment and that of the GES to promoting the initiative. She made a firm commitment on behalf of the GES, who she said were highly appreciative of UBA’s commitment to the development of education in Ghana. Mrs Adjuba Adu-Tutu who is the programmes coordinator for the secondary school division of the GES, also promised to help promote this initiative in the country. She stated that she didn’t know that Ghana had the lowest number of entries compared to other countries where the competition is also holding and promised to help correct this.
One of the winners of the 2014 edition of the National Essay Competition in Ghana, Dorcas Nuku Darko who is now studying Political Science & Information Studies at the University of Ghana was also at the press launch. She was interviewed by members of the press who were interested in getting her take on the competition and how it had positively impacted her life.
