Speaking on the occasion, Professor Steve Sobotie, Principal, College of Technical Education (UEW), Kumasi, warned the students not to involve themselves into wrongful cyber activities like 'SAKAWA' which may spoil their achievement.

Stressing on the need of studying at the accredited institution only, Mr. Kapil Gupta , Managing Director NIIT Ghana, warned students and parents to check for proper accreditation for courses and institutions from the National Accreditation Board  website before enrolling themselves, as lots of non-accredited institutions are offering cheaper programs, without having any value for their certificates.
