IGP calls for self-discipline among Ghanaians 3/18/2007
Cape Coast, March 18, GNA- The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Patrick Acheampong, on Saturday pointed out that if there is compromise, better communication, mutual trust, transparency and active involvement of all stakeholders in the administration of schools, most of the problems leading to indiscipline in schools would be reduced to the barest minimum. He said self-discipline was the pivot around which academic and professional excellence revolved and that it was imperative for all to remain disciplined in whatever they do. Mr Acheampong said this during the 97th Speech and Founders Day of Adisadel College at Cape Coast under the theme 93Academic Excellence through discipline". He lauded the theme and said indiscipline had adverse effects on the society in general and on academic performance of students in particularly, stressing that it remains a depressing social canker in the society. The IGP, who is an old student, pointed out that what has made the menace of indiscipline more complex was the fact that some schools and colleges which are responsible for producing future leaders were swimming in a "pool of hooliganism, acts of vandalism and other indefensible acts of indiscipline". Mr Acheampong, who took time to explain the various forms of discipline, urged the students to be focused on self=96discipline or self control instead of being whipped or galvanized to accept disciplinary norms or respect for authority. He urged them to obey all school rules and regulations and eschew vices such as stealing, smoking, drinking of alcohol, drugs abuse and molestation of juniors, adding that, 93if they voluntarily and willing submit themselves to abide by the norms of the school they were imposing discipline on themselves and preparing to achieve better academic excellence. He paid a glowing tribute to the founding fathers of the school, headmasters and Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for their invaluable contributions towards the development of the school, which he said, has helped in the training of great leaders who are all over the globe occupying very responsible positions. He announced that a police cadet corps will soon be introduced in the college and promised them boots, gloves and uniforms. Mr Herbert Graham, headmaster of the College in his welcoming address also paid a glowing tribute to the founding fathers of he college, old students for their unflinching support in the provision of infrastructure and other teaching and learning materials which has helped to improve academic work in the school.Source:
