The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Hon. Emmanuel Agyarko has donated fifty (50) pieces of ceiling fans to the Jean Nelson Aka Hall of the University of Ghana.
Hon. Agyarko said he deemed it a privilege to serve the University which falls under his jurisdiction. He stated that he interacted with the Senior Tutor of the Hall, Dr. Ebenezer Owusu and the President of the Junior Common Room (JCR) and found out that there was the need to provide fans to the Hall for students to feel comfortable during the hot season. The MP emphasized that this was not the first time he had made a donation to the University adding that he would continue to do so to support the University.
Acknowledging the support, the Hall Master thanked the MP for his kind gesture. She called on other organizations and individuals to emulate the MP’s example adding that he should not be surprised to receive other sponsorship requests from the Hall. The Senior Tutor also expressed his profound gratitude on behalf of the Tutorial Board and said the fans donated was the perfect solution to the problem of damaged fans in students’ rooms.
