Africa: Govt. commits $ 10m to Volta, Brong Ahafo universities

Ghana Students

Government has committed ten million dollars for the completion of the two Universities started in the Volta and Brong Ahafo regions. The Vice President John Dramani Mahama revealed after a tour of the University of Health and Allied Science situated in the Volta region.

In an interview, the Vice President said he is satisfied with progress of work on the facility. According to him the University is ready to take off adding that the structures in place are good enough for lectures to begin.

The Vice President indicated that “we have a financing pipeline and so the projects and infrastructure would continue to happen. They [the University] still have some money with GETfund which they can use to start.

“In addition we have money in the China Exim facility, which was one of the things I discussed when I went to China, asking them to fast track that particular facility out of the whole basket and so ones that is approved that’s another 10 million dollars.

“It can provide much more infrastructure for the two campuses. I saw UDS when it started at Nyankpala, they didn’t have a quarter of the facilities I’m seeing here so this university is ready to start. With 200 students they can start. Once the students are on campus and learning we can continue to expand.”

The Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Fred Binka agrees with the Vice President. He says all is set for the university to start in September this year. Meanwhile reports reaching Citi News indicate that work is yet to commence on the proposed University of Renewable Energy in the Bono Ahafo Region. The University is the second of the two public Universities, President Mills promised the country.
