Koforidua(E/R), April 19, GNA - The Koforidua Technical University (KTU) has taken delivery of 100 bags of cement from Friends of Baafi, a philanthropic organisation, which promotes humanitarian issues in the New Juaben South Municipality.
The group is made up of people whose activities are aimed at promoting the political interest of Mr Michael Okyeref Baafi, the Chief Executive Officer of the Free Zones Board.
The donation was to support the improvement of infrastructure at KTU.
The group had earlier donated another 100 bags of cement to support infrastructure development at the Koforidua Nursing and Midwifery Training School.
A member of the Friends of Baafi, Mr Louis Appiah told the Ghana News Agency that the donations were to contribute their quota to the promotion of education in the municipality.
The Vice Chancellor of KTU, Professor Mrs Smile Dzisi, thanked the group for the nice gesture and said the donation was timely as the institution was embarking on a walling project that 30 per cent complete.
Prof Dzisi said, the project was intended to protect the land of the institute from encroachers who were almost taking part of their property of the institute.
She appealed to corporate organisations, philanthropist and individuals to support the institution, as government alone could not bear all the cost.
