Ho: GCB pledges continuous support for UHAS


 The GCB Bank has pledged continuous support towards the development
of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS).
The bank provided funding for a GHC20 million hall of residence for the University, which was
commissioned by the President at a durbar to mark the 10th Anniversary of the Institution.
Mr. Linus Kumi, GCB’s Head of Corporate Banking, said the bank’s successes with UHAS
deepened its credentials of supporting the nation’s education sector, which was a core
mandate, and therefore the relationship, which dates to establishment of the University, would
be sustained.
“We started with UHAS from day one, and we want to assure them that we will be here
forever,” he stated.
Mr. Kumi said the Bank would continue to engage with Management of the University, and roll
strategies to support the various developmental initiatives.
He expressed gratitude to management and students of the Institution for sustaining working
relations, noting increasing subscriptions and service patronage.

The 680- bed capacity Sokode Hall of Residence is expected to ease some accommodation
difficulties on the nation’s only prime health university, whose student population had grown to
more than 7,000 in a decade.
Leadership of the University had used the anniversary occasion to bend stakeholder attention
to the infrastructural deficit.
“We need the right infrastructure to double our intake,” Professor John Owusu Gyapong, Vice
Chancellor, bemoaned in an address, calling to complete a central laboratory complex, and the
UHAS School of Public Health.
Work on the second phase development of the University’s main campus in Ho is however
progressing.
President Akufo Addo had facilitated the 60 million dollars project which is part of China’s Aid
to the Country.
An exponential rise in student population is therefore expected, and the demand for student
and staff accommodation is already pressing, making the University environment a target for
investors and developers.
