The Ho Development Association (HODA) and the Ho Club 50, both Non Governmental Organisations based in Ho, last Friday presented assorted library books to the Evangelical Presbyterian University College (EPUC) in Ho to enhance academic work in university.
Mr. Obed Agbevordey, an executive member of the HODA who presented the books on behalf of the association said the donation was the group’s contribution towards the growth of the university which is the first in the Volta region.
He said the Volta region is noted for its academic excellence, but it’s fasting loosing the accolade and called on all well-meaning Voltarians to join forces in making frantic efforts to bring back the region’s past glory. Mr. Agbevordey expressed appreciation to the founders of the University for their Sacrifices and said ‘the establishment of the university has brought smiles to the faces of the many citizens of the region’.
The books which are in the Business, Economics, Marketing and General Studies areas, were supplied by the Tema Rotary Club of which Mr. Agbevordey is a member and sponsored by Brothers-Brothers Foundation of U.S.A.
Mr. Agbevordey underscored the importance of a library and said ‘one of the strong pillars of any university is how well stock its library is’ and assured the university of regular supplies whenever the Tema rotary club receive consignments from their USA partners.
Mr. Samuel Walter K. Buame, the Registrar of EPUC who received the books, expressed the university’s gratitude to the Ho development association and the Ho club 50 for their thoughtful gesture and called on other philanthropists to support the university in its quest to train qualified human resource to meet the developmental needs of the nation.
Mr Buame said the university was commended by the National Accreditation Board (NAB) for its library stock and was optimistic that the donations would help keep that standard.
Present at the donation were Mr. David Bansah and Mr. Dickson Pi-Bansah, both president and secretary of Ho Club 50 respectively.
