Vice-Chancellor Receives Delegation from UniBank

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, has received a delegation from Unibank led by the Executive Director, Global Marketing and Retail Banking, Mr. Ekow Nyarko Dennis. The purpose of the visit was to request for a land on campus to put up a banking facility. Speaking to the delegation, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah said some banks have already put in their requests for land to put up banking edifice at the “Bank Farm”, a vast land on campus zoned by the University authorities for banks to build structures to facilitate their banking operations. However, Prof. Ampiah said that their requests had not be responded to due to the late composition of the University Council. He thanked the delegation for passing through the right channel to request for a land and urged them to put in formal application to the University for consideration. The Vice-Chancellor reminded them of the stringent conditions which enjoined banks to allocate a floor of the building they would construct to the University. Mr. Ekow Nyarko Dennis also seized the opportunity to introduce the incoming University of Cape Coast Branch Manager of Unibank, Mr. Eugene Amoa, who is due to take over from the outgoing Branch Manager, Mr. Daniel Amponsah. Mr. Amponsah thanked management of the University for their support throughout his stay as the Branch Manager on campus and appealed to them to extend similar support to his successor. On his part, Prof. Ampiah welcomed Mr. Eugene Amoa to the University and assured him of the University’s continuous support to enable him to achieve the purpose of the bank. He reiterated the University’s position for cheaper rates from banks which, according to him, would help the University to transact business with them.
