The Management of Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) has paid a courtesy call on the Atwimahene, Nana Antwi Agyei Brempong II, to thank him for the role he played towards the establishment of the university.
The visit was also to seek his counsel and blessings towards the success of the university.
The team was led by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Frederick Kwaku Sarfo, with the acting Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. James Kagya-Agyemang; the acting Director of Finance, Mr Geoffrey Mensah; Deputy Registrar and Head of the University Relations, Mr Michael Kofi Twum-Ampomah, as other members of the team.
On behalf of the Governing Council of the university, Prof. Sarfo expressed the board’s appreciation to the Atwimahene and his traditional council for their support.
He explained that the management had delayed visiting him (Atwimahene) partly because it was hoping to resolve all transitional matters between AAMUSTED and the University of Education Winneba (UEW) ahead of the visit to update him adequately on developments.
Prof. Sarfo said the management was working hard towards accomplishing the mandate of the university to be relevant in the country.
By that, he said the university would also be contributing to the development of Atwima and assured the chief that the university would continue to discharge its social responsibility faithfully by identifying societal needs that must be addressed.
For his part, Nana Agyei Brempong II was grateful to the team for the visit and was optimistic that with its new status as a full-fledged autonomous university, AAMUSTED would develop faster and contribute meaningfully to the development of Ghana.
