Konor of Yilo Krobo Traditional Area Interacts with UESD Management and Heads

The Konor of the Yilo Krobo Traditional Area, Nene Oklepeme Nuer Anobah Sasraku II, along with his entourage of sub-chiefs and queen mothers, has paid a familiarization visit to the management of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development (UESD).

They were received by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eric Nyarko-Sampson, together with his management team and some divisional and unit heads at the auditorium in the Multi-Purpose Building, where a meeting was held and moderated by the Registrar, Mrs. Mary Abena Agyapong.


The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nyarko-Sampson, extended a warm welcome to the chief, expressing his excitement about the visit. He also noted that UESD would celebrate its fourth anniversary on August 5, 2024. He remarked that the majority of staff members had relocated from different parts of the country to areas around the University and its environs. They had been well-received, allowing them to focus on their responsibilities, and he expressed gratitude to the chief for his assistance in areas of difficulty.

After the Vice-Chancellor’s address, the Registrar invited three Senior Members of the Management team to brief the Konor on the progress made in their various fields. The first to present was the Director of Physical Development and Estate Management (DPDEM), Surv. Abbam. Among other things, he briefed the chief on the progress of work on the various infrastructural project phases on campus. He also mentioned UESD’s land ownership and a reservation area between the road and its boundary pillar. He noted that work has begun to assess this reservation area and determine its length and other measurements.

The Director of the Directorate of Information Technology Systems and Operations (DITSO), Dr. Emmanuel Kitcher, spoke on the progress made concerning technology. He mentioned that in the beginning, call connectivity was a significant challenge for the university. However, with support from the Vice-Chancellor and Management, the necessary infrastructure was installed, greatly improving connectivity.

The Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Daniella Delali Sedegah, also spoke on student issues. She reiterated the Vice-Chancellor’s suggestion from an earlier visit to the chief, proposing the institution of two awards in his name for the best-graduating students at the school and faculty levels, with the hope of encouraging excellence among the student body. The SRC Vice-President, Mr. Chris Afari Addo, a Level 300 student, also reported on the activities of students.

The Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Edward Wiafe Debrah, briefed the chief on the collaborations between UESD and other institutions. He revealed that UESD has signed forty (40) Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with various national and international organizations.

On his part, Nene Oklepeme Nuer Anobah Sasraku II commended the Management of UESD for their contributions and efforts towards its progress. He stated that he views the University not just as a government institution but as a university of the land, asserting that the local people would be the primary beneficiaries of its success. He also expressed his commitment to continue supporting the Uiversity in every way possible.
