UESD Electrification Project Gets Support

In its quest to enhance security within the University community, the Management of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development (UESD) has embarked on an electrification project to light up some parts of campus.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eric Nyarko-Sampson said, the project is necessitated to ensure that the Community remains safe at all times.

As a response to the Vice-Chancellor’s request, the University received ten (10) LED street lights each from Dr. Richard Twum-Barima of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Hon. Albert Tetteh Nyakotey, the incumbent Member of Parliament for the Yilo Krobo Constituency and candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), as contributions to the electrification project.

Dr. Richard Twum-Barima who was the first to donate at the Council Chamber said, it is no secret that Somanya has already begun recording positive gains on account of the establishment of the University there.

He said, business is flourishing for the community folks, particularly in the services and infrastructure sector. This is manifested in the increased investments in the construction of hostels and apartments for students and staff. He again observed that several recreational centres and eateries within the community are also expanding their businesses as a result of increased patronage from students and staff. Dr. Twum-Barima said, these great strides have fortified his resolve to do everything within his power to support the University’s expansion. He acknowledged the challenges facing the University and pledged to continue supporting it.

Dr. Twum-Barima was accompanied by the Municipal Chief Executive of Yilo Krobo Municipality, Mr. Eric Tetteh.

Later in the afternoon, Hon. Albert Tetteh Nyakotey also made his donation. Hon. He expressed his desire to see much more done for UESD in recognition of the invaluable assistance it has provided to the residents of Yilo Krobo and Somanya in particular.

He mentioned that he is aware of the great lengths the University is going to ensure the completion of its infrastructural projects on campus. After inspecting the stalled projects, Hon. Nyakotey promised to lobby for the projects to be completed to enhance teaching and learning. He was accompanied by the Constituency Communications Officer of the Part, Mr. Emmanuel Akumatey.

Prof. Nyarko-Sampson expressed appreciation to the two donors for the kind gesture. He appealed for support from Corporate Ghana, Civil Society Organizations, NGO’s and other stakeholders.

Also present were; the Pro-Vice Chancellor, Prof. Edward Wiafe-Debrah; the Registrar, Mrs. Mary Abena Agyepong and the Director of the Directorate of Physical Development and Estate Management (DPDEM), Sur.Dr. Isaac Abbam.
