Knowledge exchange key to human capital transformation – Ya-Na


Ya-Na Abukari II, the paramount chief of Dagbon, emphasized the transformative role of education and knowledge exchange in human society during his visit to Turkey. He underscored that while financial aid from developed nations is important, it alone cannot foster the necessary human capital and infrastructure development in Africa.

Speaking at a meeting with the Vice-Chancellor of Bursa Technical University (BTU), Prof. Dr. Naci Caglar, Ya-Na Abukari II called upon leaders and policymakers in Africa to prioritize programs that facilitate the transfer of knowledge, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This, he stressed, is crucial for accelerating Africa’s development and asserting its place on the global stage.

Ya-Na Abukari II commended Prof. Dr. Naci Caglar for his leadership and the willingness of BTU to partner with Tamale Technical University (TaTu) in Ghana. This partnership aims to enhance research opportunities, facilitate exchange programs, offer scholarships, and promote knowledge transfer across various fields of study to bolster human capital development in Ghana.

Prof. Dr. Naci Caglar reciprocated the praise, highlighting BTU’s strengths in artificial intelligence, robotics, engineering, and other disciplines. He expressed optimism about expanding this collaboration to include postgraduate and doctoral programs, welcoming more Ghanaian students to BTU in the future.

The meeting, attended by dignitaries from both sides, including Dalun Lana Tapha Mahamadu III and representatives from BTU, culminated in plans for a delegation from BTU to visit Ghana later in the year to finalize the partnership agreement between the universities.
