Electricity Section Honours Two Retired Staff

The Electricity Section of the University of Cape Coast has honoured two retired staff of the Section for their long dedicated service to the University at a ceremony on campus. The two staff, Mr. Patrick Kwofie and Mr. Robert Sam served the University for 35 years and 39 years respectively. Each of them received a table top refrigerator and cash as their end of service package. Speaking at the function, the Head of Electricity Section, Mr. Joseph Wilberforce Ansah expressed gratitude to the two retired staff for their commitment to duty and also serving as a source of inspiration to the younger staff. He explained that the Electricity Section began this awards ceremony for retired staff in 1998 to express appreciation to them and also motivate active staff to work very hard. Mr. Ansah said that it was through such a ceremony that the University decided to present items such as refrigerators, television and furniture to retired staff. “The former, Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Emmanuel Addow-Obeng attended a ceremony to award retired staff of the Electricity Section and he was surprised that we were giving them refrigerators and furniture, so he tasked the Welfare Section to also adopt this practice and since then staff going on retirement are given these items,” he explained. The two retired staff thanked the head and staff of the section for the honour done them. They encouraged them to be united and work towards the development of the University.
