The Vice-Chancellor of Kumasi Technical University (KsTU) Ing. Prof Nana Osei-Wusu Achaw together with a section of his team paid a working visit to the Mayor of Kumasi Hon. Osei Asibey Antwi to further deepen the working relationship and collaboration that has existed between Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) and the Technical University. The new areas of further collaboration include sanitation, fire education, energy conservation, revenue collection and inculcation of the spirit of volunteerism among the youth within the Kumasi metropolis.
In his welcome address, the Mayor of Kumasi reiterated the need to have a close working relationship with the various institutions of higher learning especially, Kumasi Technical University that has what it takes to solve the myriad of problems that confront the people of Kumasi and the nation as a whole. He emphasized that the issue of sanitation which has always posed a challenge to all the metropolitan and municipal authorities still rears its ugly head in the operation of KMA. He said, there was therefore the need for KsTU to work hand-in-hand with sanitation department of KMA to come up with advanced technologies that would deal with the sanitation challenge.
On the part of the vice-chancellor of KsTU, he was very emphatic that KsTU has just commissioned Hall Brigade Committee which is a volunteer group formed to operate in three main areas. The issues to be tackled are fire-related, environmental and sanitation issues as well as electrical and energy conservation matters. He further indicated that apart from these areas that KsTU is ready to collaborate with KMA to champion, the Institution has wide range of human resource in the area of engineering, applied science, pharmaceutical developments and various areas of business development including advanced procurement practices.
Included in the Vice-Chancellor’s team were the Registrar of the University Mr. Ebenezer Kofi Boakye, Dr. Charles Obeng-Sarpong (the University Relations Officer) as well as Ms. Elizabeth Betty-Whyte, the Protocol Officer of KsTU.
