‘GTUC to be renamed Ghana Communications Technology University’ – Management
The Management of Ghana Technology University College (GTUC) has announced to rename the University to Ghana Communications Technology University, GNA has said.
This was revealed by the President of the GTUC, Professor Emmanuel Ohene-Afoakwa after a presentation of COVID-19 relief support to more than 300 of its resident international students and some needy Ghanaian students, who were already receiving a scholarship from the Institution.
He commended and expressed gratitude to the government, President and Parliament for the gesture that GTUC, which was now formally going to be named as the Ghana Communications Technology University has been added to the Public Universities Bill.
“We are very happy and we grateful to the President and then to the Government about this inclusion, and therefore, we know that once the Public Universities’ Bill is passed, automatically, Ghana Communications Technology University will become a fully-fledged public university and then we will start to receive aid from the Government,” he said
Among the relief items donated to the students are bags of rice, tubers of yam, cooking oil, tomato paste, bottled mineral water, spaghetti, facemasks, and alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
The items are said to be part of the first batch of donation to be made by the GTUC from an amount of GH¢100,000.00, which had been set aside by Management to provide support to international students, who are currently in residence on campus and some needy Ghanaian students.
Mr. Joel Koume, President, GTUC International Students Association, receiving the items expressed his gratitude to Management of the GTUC for the kind courtesy.
