She told President Nana Addo Dakwa Akufo-Addo who was a guest at the ceremony that “Mr President, I would like to make an appeal to your government to deliver us from this rogue that hinders our growth and efforts to be truly world-class. I am making a special appeal to you to support us to clear our unfortunate debt, so we can get a clean slate to start on.”

Speaking about her plans, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo said she would like to give each student a laptop to enhance their academic progress.

“I intend to institute a one-student-one-laptop policy, where we will collaborate with established ICT institutions to provide our students and staff to have their own laptops or handheld devices,” she said.

“Mr President, in this regard, we will need your support and that of your government to waive taxes for us making these devices affordable for our students and staff,” she added.
