The Vice Chancellor, Prof Harrison Dapaah has paid a courtesy call on Lt. Col Edward Awaribey, the Commanding Officer of the Third Battalion of Infantry (3BN) at the Liberation Barracks in Sunyani.
The visit by the Vice Chancellor, who was accompanied by Mr. A. K. Boateng, Registrar, Mr. Ben Appiah Kubi, University Relations Officer, and Mr. Prince Awuah, Junior Assistant Registrar at the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, was to afford him the opportunity to introduce himself and interact with military chiefs in the Brong Ahafo Region
Prof Dapaah said the University, as an institution of learning, was prepared to collaborate with the Military to build the capacity of its officers in disciplines such as engineering, natural resources among others to equip them with the requisite knowledge in their work.
Mr A. Boateng, the Registrar on the other hand, told the military chiefs in the Region that the Vice Chancellor assumed office in August this year and said his visit was to oil the existing relationship that existed between UENR and 3BN.
Lt. Col Edward Awaribey, the Commanding Officer, on his part described the relationship between the 3BN of Infantry Liberation Barracks and the University of Energy and Natural Resources as very cordial and indicated that the Military will continue to support the cadet of the University.
The Commanding Officer supported the idea of the institution of fun games between the two institutions and promised to invite UENR to participate in the annual WASA Games of the military slated for the later part of the year.
