As Ghana joins the rest of the world to mark World Engineering Day today, Wednesday, 4 March 2020, the Institution of Engineers and Technology Ghana (IETG) is calling on the government to fully implement Engineering Council Act 819 to ward off quack engineering schools and practitioners.

The World Engineering Day is set aside by UNESCO to highlight the work of engineers.

According to President of IETG, Engr. Eric Atta-Sonno, passage of Legislative Instrument to back the Engineering Council Act 819 of 2011, will clear off unqualified engineers and mushrooming of substandard schools in the country.

In an exclusive interview with Class News’ Jerry Akornor, Engr. Atta-Sonno said employers in Ghana risk getting shoddy work and services if they fail to engage services of licensed engineers.

“To the government, we’ve had the Engineering Council Act since 2011, unfortunately, it has not been fully implemented because enabling LI has not been enacted. We’re pleading with the Attorney General’s Department to fast track it as envisioned…” he said.

Engr. Atta-Sonno also urged players within the construction industry to cooperate with certified engineering practitioners in the discharge of their duties in Ghana.

“To employers, we want to crave your indulgence that you make sure you engage engineering practitioners who are licensed and qualified for various engineering tasks”, he told Class FM.

According to the World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO), the goals of World Engineering Day have been outlined to demonstrate the role of engineers and engineering, develop solutions to climate change, raise the profile of engineering and technology, and its role in improving the quality of life worldwide intended to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

My dear friend,
"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live." – George Bernard Shaw
Over the last couple of years, I’ve dedicated a bit of my time to join the struggle of helping to raise the younger generation. This has been to ensure that they are well positioned to take over the reins of this country and improve on its lot.
Being a committed Christian, I have for the better part of my adult life been inspired by the philosophy, ‘Omnibus Omnia Factus Sum’, a Latin phrase adopted from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians 9:22 where he wrote that he became all things to all men that he might save some by all means.
I have therefore, utilized all manner of approaches to help influence positive change in the attitude and orientation of our people for the overall purpose of nation building. To this, I welcome you to my blog. Enjoy my take on issues espoused through the scripts as well as my brief thoughts on issues as they play out daily and news stories on various endeavors that I may play a part in.
Feed back is always critical for improvement and I would thus appeal to you to always leave a note after reading any piece on this blog.
