Vice-Chancellor Calls on ECG Boss

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, has paid a working visit to the Central Regional Headquarters of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG). In his remarks at a meeting with the management of the Central Regional ECG, Prof. Ampiah said the visit was to introduce himself and also deepen the already existing relations between UCC and ECG. The Vice-Chancellor expressed the University’s gratitude to management of the Central Regional ECG for the continuous support and assistance. He further called for continuous support to enable the University Community to enjoy uninterrupted power supply. During the meeting, the Regional General Manager thanked Prof Ampiah for the visit. He assured the Vice-Chancellor that ECG would always do everything within its means to ensure that the University Community does not suffer from frequent power outages. He noted that the University has been designated as part of the sensitive areas in the region. Mr. Abebreseh briefed Prof. Ampiah on the issue of ECG providing a Dedicated Line to the University to prevent frequent power cuts. He lauded the idea by the University to accept the prepaid system which he noted would be beneficial to the two institutions. For his part, the Vice-Chancellor thanked Mr. Abebreseh for the warm hospitality accorded him. Mr. Ampiah noted that the issue of ECG providing a Dedicated Line to the University should be discussed thoroughly to save the University from the cost of buying fuel to service its generators during power outages. The Vice-Chancellor further appealed to the Regional General Manager to allow his engineers to conduct routine checks on the University's equipment, including the Sub-station. The Vice-Chancellor’s delegation included the Registrar, Mr. John Kofi Nyan; Director of Academics, Mr. Jeff Onyame; Acting Director of Public Affairs, Major Kofi Baah-Bentum (rtd); Assistant Registrar, Office of the Vice-Chancellor, Mrs. Georgina Asi Owusu and Junior Assistant Registrar, Public Relations and Protocol Section, Mr. Felix Adu-Poku.
