Vice Chancellor commends Nyamekye-Marfo


Sunyani (B/A)

Professor Mrs. Esi Awuah, Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) in Brong-Ahafo on Thursday commended Mr. Kwadwo Nyamekye-Marfo, Regional Minister for providing effective leadership in the region.

She said the Minister's sterling performance in leading the Local Implementation Committee (LIC) of the new University had not only made it possible for its take off in the 2012/2013 academic year, but also her job as the premier VC “has even been made easier”.

Prof. Mrs Awuah made the commendation when presenting a paper on “The establishment of a Public University in the Brong-Ahafo Region: How Far Have We Gone” at a dialogue session as part of the four-day regional Policy Fair underway in Sunyani.

The VC described Mr. Nyamekye-Marfo as an epitome of knowledge in his career, confessing that, the leadership qualities in him as Minister had changed her thinking and perception about politicians.

"Hitherto I was not going closer to politicians but my association with the Regional Minister has changed me", she said.

The Policy Fair on the theme, “Building Together in a Better Ghana”, is aimed among others at creating the opportunity for the people to seek the right information and interact with policy makers and implementers with the view to enhancing policy formulation and policy review.

It is also to afford Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), as well as Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs), the opportunity to showcase government programmes, projects and achievements within the 40 months rule of the government.

Prof. Mrs. Awuah expressed appreciation to the LIC and the Regional Co-ordinating Council (RCC) for their commitment to duty and co-operation with the Regional Minister towards the realization of the dream to establish a public-funded University in the region.

The VC expressed gratitude to the chiefs, opinion leaders and entire people of the region for their support in diverse ways that facilitated the commencement of the university.

She stated that the aim of the University is “ to provide higher education in science, technology and sustainable harnessing and management of energy and natural resources through teaching and research to all persons suitably qualified and capable of benefiting from that education”.

It is also to establish partnerships, disseminate and apply knowledge gained through research to address the energy and natural resources needs and aspirations of the people of Ghana in particular and the world in general, the VC added.

Prof. Mrs. Awuah said the University would also “provide technical and other skills services and contribute to improving the management and use of Ghana's energy and natural resources”.

The new University is also aimed at “providing leadership and be a role model institution promoting the design and construction of energy efficient buildings and create eco-friendly environments”, she declared.

how is the infrastructure coming up?
any pictures?
I think they shd be patient and get it reasonably ready before enrolling students. They shdnt stampede themselves into enrolling students without requisite faculty just becos of the elections

NDC building university on paper - Kenwuud Nuworsu

Ken Nuworsu

The Volta Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kenwuud Nuworsu, has described the facilities for the take-off of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) as not even fit for a day nursery.

He said it was one thing building a university on paper and another putting the infrastructure on the ground.

“Unless you put the infrastructure in place, you have not done anything; you only have the intention”, he explained.

He said the “National Accreditation Board will not give accreditation to a private person to use those incubatory facilities for a junior high school because private JHSs in Ho have better facilities. It is not even fit for a day nursery”.

Mr Nuworsu disclosed this in an interview with the Daily Graphic at his residence in Ho.

“Yet, these so called communications guys of the government will come on air and claim they have given the region a brand new university”, he wondered.

He said that was the way the NDC had claimed they had constructed polytechnics but it was former President Kufuor who came to resource the polytechnics to become what they are today.

Mr Nuworsu stressed that if the establishment of a university was only about stating it on paper, the NPP government could have declared universities in every corner of the country.

He called on the chiefs of the region to stand up and not be taken for granted, saying “they were taken to the bush to cut sod for a university but what has happened so far”?

In the view of Mr Nuworsu, if that project had gone on as expected, the whole area would have been a haven of economic activities for both skilled and unskilled labour.

“When there are jobs and everyone can do something that can bring money into their pockets to pay bills, buy food, pay fees and able to access other necessities of life, then we can say the people are better off, but not what they are doing now”, he regretted.

I so wish these Universities will be followed up and fulfilled. We have about 10,000 senior secondary schools but barely 4 universities to cater to all these students. Then we turn around and complain about street hawkers.

The lands has been aquired but not yet off the ground but Mills count it as part of his achievments.
