A student of the Accra Law School has donated a set of Public Address system and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worth Ghc10,000 to all the three campuses of the Ghana Law School.
In a ceremony at the institute’s campus in Accra yesterday January 9, 2020, Samuel Vanda-ice popularly known as Sir Van donated some microphones, receivers, and a gallon of hand sanitizers to the main Makola camps, Green hill Campus, and Kumasi Campus (KNUST).
Speaking to ModernGhana News Mr. Samuel Vanda-ice who is an SRC Presidential Hopeful stated that his decision to solve some challenges facing his alma mater led to the donation and believes the items were going to enhance learning.
“I have always had my institute at heart and I am happy I have been able to give out these items which I believe will go a long way to enhance academic work because I realized the classes need microphones to enable students to hear their teachers better,
“Formally there were only two microphones used by some classes and you and I can attest to the fact that this does not help in promoting excellent academic work so therefore I have donated four, microphones each to the Accra, Kumasi, and GIMPA campuses respectively and I know that this will enable teaching and learning.” He stated.
Mr. Vanda-Ice added that there was the need to apply all safety measures towards the prevention of novel Coronavirus therefore the inclusion of a gallon of hand sanitizer each for the various classes.
“I believe that Covid 19 is a very bad killer virus and research tells us that aside it been airborne it can also be spread when we touch surfaces already touched by infected persons so therefore with the hand sanitizer one can quickly clean the microphone before handing over to the other after usage.”
To receive the items was the institute’s Works Manager Mr Enyo who expressed his gratitude to Mr Vanda-Ice for the kind gesture.
He indicated that the donation came at a time the institute needed them.
Mr. Vanda-Ice however called on government and other benevolent organisations to come to the aid of the institute by helping to create room for more individuals who desire to pursue law as he believes the country needs more lawyers.
“We need more lawyers; last year the law school admitted about a thousand students and that has put pressure on the institute so the government needs everyone on board including the government to help solve some of the institute’s problems because I believe this will put it in the position to train more quality lawyers.”
