The tour proceeded to the environs of the main entrance to the University to inspect the ongoing perimeter fencing. According to the contractor, Pel Construction Limited, about 95% of the first of three phases of the project has been completed. The contractor indicated that the frontage of the University entrance will be given a beautification facelift, to serve as a leisure garden.

Next, Senior Management visited the School of Engineering Sciences, where the landscaping project is near completion. The Dean of the School, Prof. Boateng Onwona-Agyeman, commended the contractor and requested the installation of streetlights on the stretch of the road lying between the School and ISSER.

From the School of Engineering Sciences, the Senior Management team went to the Sports Directorate to inspect the nearby 12,000-seater capacity stadium and the ongoing beautification project around it. Dr. Bella Bello Bitugu, Director of Sports, conducted the team round the furnished offices of the Directorate within the stadium. He indicated that the track and field portions of the stadium were being re-grassed because they become waterlogged whenever it rains heavily.
