The government has handed over the Brong Ahafo University of Energy and Natural Resource Management to the Vice Chancellor at a ceremony held at the premises of the university on Thursday. This ostensibly means that academic work can commence in earnest on the university.

The University of Energy and Natural Resource Management is one of two universities that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) promised to establish to complement the efforts of the public universities in the country. The other university, known as the University of Health and Allied Sciences is being established in the Volta Region.

Mr. Eric Opoku, Deputy Brong-Ahafo Regional Minister, who represented government at the event said “as part of the NDC campaign promise to the people of the Brong Ahafo region in particular and Ghanaians in general, to establish two universities in the Bronga Ahafo and Volta regions barely a year after that ceremony, today that promise has been fulfilled.”

According to the minister, the handing over ceremony should serve as ample evidence that the NDC government is committed to living up to its promises.

“Today’s ceremony is also a testimony to our quest to invest in people jobs and the economy as part of initiatives of our better Ghana agenda,” Mr. opoku added.

He said the university is expected to provide leadership in the sciences and technological education.
