A delegation from the University has called on the La Traditional Council to commiserate with them on the passing of the La Mantse, Nii Kpobi Tsuru III. The late La Mantse passed away in January 2019.

In a glowing tribute to the late La Mantse, Prof. Kwame Offei, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Academic and Student Affairs, who led the delegation, indicated that Nii Kpobi Tsuru III was a good friend of the University and was always present during University functions.  He eulogized Nii Kpobi Tsuru III as a peace loving statesman and experienced traditional leader, who had the development of youth at heart.  According to the Pro Vice-Chancellor, Nii always pursued in a diligent manner for qualified applicants from the La community to enrol at the University.  Prof. Offei finally assured the La Traditional Council of the University’s support during the final funeral rites, while sustaining the relationship that had been built by the late La Mantse.
