Speaking after the handing over of the documents, the Vice-Chancellor reiterated the importance of the project, emphasizing that it would serve to create uniformity and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the University, particularly as the institution seeks to further establish its identity through the ongoing mass rebranding campaign. He stated his expectation that the project would be completed in time for his Investiture which is scheduled for 18th December, 2021, especially bearing in mind that as part of the occasion, the University would be hosting many high-profile visitors. The Vice-Chancellor affirmed that he was confident that quality work would be done as he had been impressed by some of the previous projects undertaken by WaxHome Ghana Ltd.

The representative of WaxHome thanked the Vice-Chancellor for the faith placed in the company and assured those present that even before the completion of the project, the University would be physically transformed and beautified beyond expectation.

Mr. Baapiri also assured those in attendance that the Directorate of Works and Physical Development would work closely with WaxHome, and also gave his assurance that he and his team would work assiduously to supervise the project and ensure that it would be completed under the strictest quality and safety guidelines.

We look forward to the successful completion of the project and we are confident that it will contribute to the progress of the mass rebranding campaign which continues to transform the face of the University.
