Cryptocurrency usage has increased significantly over the past several years. While the vast majority of its use is for legitimate purposes, it has also been exploited for illicit use in scamming, money laundering, ransomware, and more. As cryptocurrency artifacts are more frequently found in, and can be used as key pieces of, digital evidence, law enforcement and corporations need access to cryptocurrency-related knowledge and tools to investigate criminal activity and help solve cases.

Together, Cellebrite and Chainalysis are enabling customers to modernize investigations by leveraging the transparency of blockchains. The integrated solution will provide automated, efficient capabilities and knowledge to identify and assess cryptocurrency risks and correlate such information to additional elements of a related case. Cellebrite’s DI suite of solutions will reveal accurate, real-time cryptocurrency data and insights from Chainalysis’ data platform. As a result of this cooperation, examiners, investigators, analysts, and compliance officers will be able to seamlessly identify illicit cryptocurrency-related activity in a single place as part of their familiar digital investigation workflows.

Cellebrite and Chainalysis are also collaborating to empower customers to bridge the cryptocurrency knowledge gap. Together, they will educate customers’ internal experts by offering cryptocurrency training and delivering cryptocurrency expert investigation services, as well as making Chainalysis’ Reactor, the investigation tool, available for advanced cryptocurrency tracing.

“Cryptocurrency, as any other financial instrument, has become a vehicle for funding crime and laundering money, and as its adoption increases, our customers must be equipped with cutting-edge solutions to identify this important category of digital evidence,” said Leeor Ben-Peretz, Chief Strategy Officer at Cellebrite. “Providing our customers with an integrated cryptocurrency investigation solution will expedite their investigations through automation and help them seamlessly uncover a wider range of digital evidence within Cellebrite’s suite of Digital Intelligence solutions. We are happy to join forces with Chainalysis to further enhance our customers’ tools and knowledge, modernize investigations, and accelerate justice.”

Professor Alnaa inducted Vice Chancellor of Bolgatanga Technical University

Professor Samuel Erasmus Alnaa, Acting Vice Chancellor of the Bolgatanga Technical University has been inducted into office as substantive and first Vice Chancellor of the University.

At a colourful Investiture ceremony held at Sumbrungu, the main campus of the University, Professor Francis Abantanga, Chairman, Governing Council of the University, who performed the ceremony, charged the new Vice Chancellor to remain focused on the development of the school.

Professor Alnaa joined the Bolgatanga Technical University, the then Bolgatanga Polytechnic in 2007, as a lecturer and rose through the ranks to become an Associate Professor in Economics in 2016.

Before becoming the Rector of the Polytechnic in 2018, Professor Alnaa held the positions of the Acting Dean of Students from May to September 2014, Vice Rector from 2013 to 2018 and Acting Rector from 2017 to 2018.

Since the conversion of the Polytechnic into a Technical University in April 2020, he had been acting as the Vice Chancellor of the University until his appointment by the Governing Council and subsequent approval by the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC).

Professor Alnaa is an astute academician and a scholar in financial economics.

Professor Abantanga described the new Vice Chancellor as a soft-spoken person whose elevation was as a result of resilience, hard work and perseverance also as one who played critical role in the conversion of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic into a Technical University.

He said the Vice Chancellor had extensive background in economics and financial training in both formal and informal sectors with genuine interest in research and an excellent ability to work under pressure.

“His achievements are wide, covering the entire University; from chairing committees to providing strategic leadership and management of the University resources including staff, finances, equipment and vehicles, to drafting curricula for both HND and Bachelor of Technology programmes and providing necessary infrastructure for successful conversion of the Bolgatanga Polytechnic to a Technical University,” he said.

On his part, Professor Alnaa expressed gratitude to the Governing Council and GTEC and other stakeholders for the confidence reposed in him and pledged “to position the University as a world-class technical and vocational education and training institution with innovative academic programmes and turning out graduates with 21st century skills.”

His vision, Professor Alnaa said was driven by six main but interrelated strategic thrusts aimed at addressing key challenges confronting the University to position it on the global map as the most preferred TVET institution.

He said the University would put in place measures to increase revenue mobilisation, good governance and management and strengthen institutional linkages to meet global, national and local best practices.

He said “becoming a Vice Chancellor is an uphill task but being a Vice Chancellor is a daunting downhill task. Getting down this hill may take four to eight years, but how one gets down this hill is what matters most. I have, therefore, taken upon myself to leave behind tracks worthy of emulation in my downhill descend”.

Mr Stephen Yakubu, the Upper East Regional Minister, charged the new Vice Chancellor to introduce innovative programmes which would respond appropriately to the fast transition world of integrated and interdependent global economy.

Intercontinental collaboration is key for African Scholars-Prof Atuguba

Professor Raymond Akongburo Atuguba, the Dean of the University of Ghana School of Law, has reiterated that collaboration with other African scholars is the solution to the current publication challenges faced by African Scholars.

The Dean stated this during an Open Forum and Round Table held as part of activities marking the Day of Scientific Renaissance of Africa (DSRA), organised by the College of Humanities at the University of Ghana.

Speaking on the theme, ‘Law and Multidisciplinary Research in aid of Science and Technology’, Prof Atuguba said there were varying reasons for the stagnant publications of African Scholars.

“First, we do not have the space to write, invent, create and innovate. African Scholars have humongous teaching burden and few hands to support the tutoring process; not enough mentors, research assistants, libraries, Information Technology (IT) support and funding”, he said.

Prof Atuguba also noted that, currently, for the publications of African Scholars to be acknowledged, there had to be a collaboration with foreign researchers.

“The chances for visibility for most African Scholars are therefore only enhanced when you are invited by Western and Northern Researchers to team up”.

To improve the situation, Prof Atuguba stated that “African Scholars can creatively co-opt partners in the places, where the money, time, support and space are, to aid us publish but we must bargain hard for greater intellectual space and visibility”.

More importantly, he advised inter-continental collaboration.

“We should work at collaborating with other African Scholars, a step that always makes the research excellent and powerful.”

He also encouraged scholars to electronically popularize their work and publish immediately.

“In Africa, Ghana and the University of Ghana, we have an outpouring of science but have not fully harnessed, utilized and incubated it,” Prof Atuguba.

He advised African Scholars to make their science available to African countries and students.

Funding allocation to technical universities worrisome-Vice Chancellor

Professor Samuel Erasmus Alnaa, the Vice Chancellor of the Bolgatanga Technical University, has called for increased funding allocation to the technical universities for them to expand infrastructure to train result-oriented and problem-solving graduates.

He said inadequate allocations could not position them well to play their established roles of leading integrated innovative skills development through vigorous Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) to create jobs and reduce unemployment.

“Last year, each of the 10 technical universities got just GH?1million. With all sincerity, what infrastructure project can a technical university undertake with this amount?

“I am aware that even the already endowed traditional universities get tens of millions of Cedis each, but we the technical universities should just manage with GH?1million. Let us not as a nation behave like the proverbial pig which litters its piglets and then turn around and lie on them thus suffocating them to death,” he said.

Speaking at the 10th Congregation of the Bolgatanga Technical University, Professor Alnaa indicated that the University had not been able to access its annual allocations from the GETFund for both faculty and infrastructure development, in the past years.

“Staff undertaking studies are unable to get refund for their school fees, thereby making it difficult for them to pay subsequent fees. Also, all our infrastructure projects have been abandoned by the contractors because they cannot redeem their certificate of payment from GETFund,” he revealed.

Professor Alnaa noted that the University was determined to put the necessary structures in place including developing a 10-year development plan to serve as a strategic document of the University.

“Plans are also advanced to introduce new programmes including mining engineering, process engineering and welding to take care of the growing mining industry in Northern Ghana”.

The Vice Chancellor expressed gratitude that the government funded a multipurpose workshop constructed by the AVIC International, with ultramodern teaching and learning equipment installed to provide commercial services to the public and set the pace for practical learning for engineering programmes in the University.

However, he said, the University continued to face infrastructure deficit, adding that although the university since 2017 had engaged relevant stakeholders including President Akufo-Addo regarding the lack of a lecture theatre complex which was impeding academic work, there seemed to be no help in sight.

He said “the situation was more precarious when the University had to give out about 10 lecture rooms for the installation of electrical and electronics equipment for teaching and learning.

The University is therefore appealing to our President to come to our aid as this dire situation is fast suffocating the growth of this young university.”

Professor Francis Abantanga, the Chairman of the Governing Council of the University, noted that TVET held the key to reducing unemployment through entrepreneurial skills development and proposed a motivation package to be designed for students who chose to study TVET programmes.

He urged the graduates to use the knowledge acquired to take advantage of youth enterprise schemes to ensure that they made a positive impact on society.

A total of 441 students who completed their programmes in 2021 were awarded various honours with 69 students awarded Bachelors of Technology.

Teachers Strike: GES to meet Unions

Accra, July 5, GNA – The Ghana Education Service (GES) has invited the leadership of the striking teacher Unions to a meeting over their industrial action.

Meanwhile, the Service has directed Heads of Senior High Schools through the Regional and?District Directors to mobilise their management teams to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students in schools.

It also asked District Directors to ensure that Basic School Heads kept schools opened and supervised all children who reported to school pending further directives.

Four teacher unions on Monday July 4, 2022,?declared an indefinite nationwide strike over demands for the payment of “Cost of Living Allowance” (COLA).

The Unions – the Ghana National Association of Teachers, the National Association of Graduate Teachers, the Teachers and Educational Workers Union and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers Ghana, are demanding 20 per cent of their basic salary as COLA.

They said the strike was necessitated by government’s failure to meet the June 30 deadline to pay the COLA, which they argued could have helped to mitigate the impact of the rising cost of living.

Mr Ofosu Asamoah, the Executive Secretary, National Labour Commision, in a statement, urged the Government to immediately engage with the aggrieved teacher unions and negotiate settlement of their grievances within seven days and report to the Commission.

The statement urged the Unions to rescind their decisions and discontinue their industrial action to pave way for the process of engagement.

A statement from the Ghana TVET Service advised its teaching and non- teaching staff to “remain at post to provide quality skills and training to the Ghanaian child,” saying they were not part of the industrial action.

Hohoe schools closed amid strike despite GES directive

Hohoe (V/R), Jul. 5, GNA – The strike action declared by four teacher unions has hit basic and second-cycle institutions in the Hohoe Municipality as classrooms remain closed.

The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), the Teachers Educational Workers’ Union (TEWU) and the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, Ghana, (CCT-GH), announced the strike action on July 4 to back their demand for a Cost-of-Living Allowance (COLA).

Both teaching and non-teaching staff in all pre-tertiary educational institutions are expected to fully participate in the strike action.

However, the Ghana Education Service (GES) in a statement directed Heads of Senior High Schools to ensure safety and well-being of students in school while all Regional and District Directors were to ensure that Basic School Heads kept schools open and closely supervise all children who report to school.

A visit by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) to some basic schools showed that students and teachers did not report for academic activities except Form Three students of some schools who were writing their mock examinations.

At the Gbi Central R.C Boys JHS, final year students were writing final papers of their mock examinations, which they began before the strike action was declared.

Mr Stephen Kwabla Afedo, the Headmaster of the Hohoe E.P Basic ‘B’ School, said the final year students could not be denied preparations towards their final exams hence they were given a two-hour tuition.

Although there was no declaration of the strike at the Hohoe E.P Senior High School by authorities, checks and interaction with some students and teachers showed that the action was in force.

The kitchen staff of the school had served the students breakfast as at the time of the visit and it was also observed that some students were taking part in some sporting activities.

Information gathered by the GNA revealed that leadership of the affected Unions in the Municipality are on a monitoring exercise to ensure that their members complied with the strike action.
