In his remarks at the function, the Head of the Section, Mr. J. W. Ansah, noted that the presentation was to show appreciation to the retired staff for their selfless services to the Section in particular and the University in general. He indicated that section has instituted a welfare policy where members make contributions to offer support when the need arose. “We have supported staff members that have married, given birth or bereaved some amount of money and also given refrigerators, ceiling fans and other gadgets to staff who retire from the Section every year” he explained.
Mr. Ansah further placed on record that the Section started the presentation of household items as package to its retired staff long before the University adopted the practice. “Our former Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Prof. S. K. Adjepong recommended to the Wefare Section to adopt the practice of presenting other packages to retired staff of University after he witnessed one of our end-of-year get-together. I want the University to recognise this aspect of our history” he noted.
