Mahama- Volta University Has Vindicated Late Prez Mills
President Mahama says the completion of the University of Health and Allied Sciences in the Volta region has vindicated the late President Mills of his promise to build a university in that region.
“We all know that a few years back, our beloved President Mills visited the Volta region to cut the sod for work to start…there was a delay in putting in place the funding and so there were many doom sayers who said it was all a gimmick and I am happy that today Prof. Mills has been vindicated”.
“We have all seen the wrok that has taken place here” President Mahama said.
President Mahama has also directed the Finance Ministry to immediately release the government’s counterpart funding of the University of Health and allied sciences.
This is to facilitate the speedy completion of ongoing projects at the campuses of the university.
According to him, he feels proud that the initial challenges that confronted the construction of the university have been surmounted.
The University of Health and Allied Sciences which is expected to operate within three different campuses in the Volta region was established by late President Mills.
Speaking at the main campus of the university as part of his two day working tour to the Volta region, the President said he is confident that work at the university campuses will be completed in no time.
