The Minister of Education, Hon. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has inaugurated the newly constituted governing council of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) on behalf of the President.
In a short address during the inauguration, the Minister thanked the council, which is chaired by Prof. George Kankam, for accepting to serve the country in that capacity and urged them to offer strategic direction to drive research at the university.
Dr. Prempeh stated “…research never ends, because it is through research that we strive to find answers to the issues that continually confront us… I charge you to put your varying skills and expertise together to drive cutting-edge and innovative research at UENR, both at faculty and student level, and I am confident you will live up to the task”
He also urged the council to be fair to all in its dealings in matters relating to appointments, promotions, award of contracts and others, with competence as its ultimate watchword.
Prof. Kankam expressed his council’s appreciation of the honour done them and gave the assurance to the Minister they would do their best to ensure the proper and smooth governance of the university
