In a noteworthy move towards advancing education and fostering development, the chiefs of Ahafo Mim, situated in the Asunafo North Municipality of the Ahafo region, have generously allocated vast acres of land to the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC). This allocation aims to facilitate the construction of a campus for the University of Engineering and Applied Sciences (UEAS), whose headquarters is located at Akrodie.
This promising development was marked by a delegation led by the Member of Parliament for Asunafo North, Hon. Evans Opoku Bobbie, Ahafo Regional Minister Hon. George Yaw Boakye, Asunafo North NPP party executives and authorities from Mim Senior High School. The delegation, representing GTEC, visited the chief of Ahafo Mim to streamline the legal and proper acquisition of land for the construction of the UEAS campus.
Addressing the chiefs, Prof. Yayra Gzakadzie, Deputy Director General of GTEC, highlighted that the initiative to establish the campus in Ahafo Mim was a result of the lobbying skills and influence of MP Hon. Evans Opoku Bobbie.
He emphasized the need for collaboration between Akrodie and Mim residents to ensure the success and progress of the university.
Prof. Gzakadzie expressed optimism about the positive impact the university would have on the region, putting Mim on the map and attracting potential investors.
During the delegation’s visit, Mim Manhene, Dr. Okofrobour Nana Yaw Agyei II, commended the efforts of the GTEC team and stressed his commitment to prioritizing excellent education and quality healthcare in the region.
