It is reported that the Techiman Campus of the Valley View University (VVU) would soon be upgraded into a University College. This follows a two-day official working visit by a high-powered delegation from the Valley View University in Accra, led by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Dr. Daniel Buor, to the Techiman Campus.

According to Prof. Dr. Dr. Daniel Buor, the purpose of the visit was to inspect on-going projects being financed by the university, and to discuss the upgrading of the Techiman Campus into a University College. Among the projects inspected included a 4-storey male hostel, and a two-storey female hostel, which are to help upgrade the campus into the University College, as proposed.

The Vice Chancellor of the VVU disclosed that the 4-storey male hostel, estimated at GH¢12.6 million, was financed with a bank loan, whilst the 2-storey female hostel, estimated at GH¢1.8 million, was financed from internally generated funds.

Prof. Dr. Dr. Buor expressed confidence at the pace of work, adding he hoped the project would be completed in the scheduled time to meet the expectation to upgrade the campus into a University College. The delegation was taken round to inspect the projects by Mr. Edward Boabeng, Works Foreman of EVANMIKE Multipurpose Company Limited, an Accra-based construction firm in charge of the ongoing projects.

Mr. Boabeng assured the delegation that the female hostel would be completed by July, whilst the first floor of the male hostel would be completed by June, this year, to commence academic activities, in line with the planned upgrading of the campus.

Some members of the delegation included Professor Philip Maiyo, Pro-Vice Chancellor of the VVU, Mr. Robert Korankye-Mensah, Registrar, VVU, Mr. Matthew Annor-Appiah, Finance Officer, VVU, Mr. Francis Opoku, Dean of Students, VVU, and hosted by Dr. Robert Osei-Bonsu, Rector Techiman Campus VVU.
