He said “before the commencement of the project, a number of institutions were contacted and only uniBank showed interest in the construction of these bus stops to the tune of GHS 1 million, for which we are very grateful. Between last year and this year, uniBank has provided 75,000.00 ID cards for both staff and students of this university, as well as providing GHS1 million in support of brilliant and needy students.”
Owusu Ansah-Awere, Executive Director, who led the delegation from UniBank, thanked the university for the partnership between the two institutions.
“We, at uniBank, saw the opportunity to meet a need that is related to comfort and care for the university and also to beautify the place with these infrastructure. This is our way of giving back to the society as we accept your felicitations,” he added.
Rev Father Peter Addai of the university dedicated the bus stops to the Lord Almighty at the ceremony.
