‘Culture of Maintenance’

Jonathan concluded by calling on everyone to learn the ‘culture of maintenance’ as it helps sustain the little resources and facilities at every institution in the country.

“Sustainable development becomes a paramount tool for curbing financial setbacks in developing countries like Ghana. And the difficulty of the country’s government to put up adequate infrastructural facilities in the educational institutions dotted across the country is a wake-up call to authorities and individuals to embrace sustainable practices, that would help maintain the few available resources and facilities at every institution in the country” Jonathan stated
