The University Management has presented eight motorbikes to the Security Section to prevent encroachment on the University’s lands.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony, the Chairman of the Committee on Encroachment, Dr. Tanimu Osman, said the University Council was concerned about the rapid rate at which people were building on the University’s lands. He said Council approved the procurement of the motorbikes to protect the remaining land from further encroachment. He noted that the motorbikes would enhance the work of the Security Section to patrol the boundaries and deter people from putting up structures on the University land.
Dr. Osman who is a member of UCC Governing Council thanked the University Management for releasing the money to procure the motorbikes for this important exercise. He was hopeful that the Security Section would be equipped with other logistics such as vehicles to effectively protect lives and properties on campus.
Make Good Use of the Motorbikes
The Pro Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dora Francisca Edu-Buandoh, urged the Security Section to make good use of the motorbikes in order to achieve the objective for which they were purchased. He advised security personnel who would carry out their duties with the motorbikes to observe safety measures adding that “We are concerned about your safety and health so wear your helmet when you ride the motorbikes”
Prof. Edu-Buandoh assured that the University Management would continue to equip personnel of the Security Section to execute their duties successfully.
