Mr. Franklin Sowah, Director, Marketing and Sales, Graphic Communications Group Limited, in brief remarks noted that the partnership will seek to shape Ghana’s developmental agenda.
Mr. Ato Afful, MD, Graphic Communications Group Limited, in his address, commended the University for its vital role in knowledge dissemination and providing opportunities for students to engage in practical training. He added that his organisation intends to expose both students and faculty to the Graphic News Plus app which offers enormous benefits in their research work and day to day operations in this technological era. Mr. Afful disclosed that the company’s Massive Print Press Operation will be available to assist in the printing of textbooks, manuscripts, and exam booklets.
Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, Vice-Chancellor, in his remarks, indicated that the University is basically involved in teaching, research and extension; thus extending frontier knowledge to affect the society, nation and the international community positively.
