Vice-Chancellor Commissions School of Pharmacy Building

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, has commissioned the School of Pharmacy building at a brief ceremony held on July 27, 2021.

The Vice-Chancellor paid tribute to his predecessors, and former Deans and members of the School of Pharmacy, who had worked tirelessly for the project to become a reality. Prof. Owusu reminded the audience that the learning environment of students also counts in determining university rankings globally; consequently, there was a duty to keep the structures of the School in a state which is optimally conducive to teaching and learning.

Rev. Prof. Patrick Ayeh-Kumi, Provost of the College of Health Sciences, expressed gratitude to the Vice-Chancellor and his team for the support received, particularly during the construction of the new building. He was proud of the achievements of the School and urged the School administrators to put the new building to good use and to maintain and improve it.

The Director of Physical Development and Municipal Services Directorate (PDMSD), Mr. Charles Kofinti, recounted how the new building, which has come to replace a temporary structure, started in 2010 under Prof. Arthur C. Sackeyfio and later Prof. Alexander Kwadwo Nyarko.

The dedication was performed by Rev. Dr. Charles Antwi Boasiako, the University Chaplain, while the Ghana Armed Forces Central Band played the fanfare.

Delivering the vote of thanks, the Dean of the School, Prof. Isaac Asiedu-Gyekye, expressed the School’s appreciation to the Vice-Chancellor and Provost for their advice and wished them well in their future endeavors as they end their tenures in office. He pledged the commitment of the School administrators to a good maintenance culture.

The facility was opened for inspection after the Vice-Chancellor, assisted by other University officials, unveiled the plaque.
