Eban Capital Limited and Nasco Feeding Minds have formed a partnership with the University of Ghana in a quest to provide resources to aid provie resources for the University’s development.
A fundraising Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreement was signed by the various parties at the University to render the partnership official.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with UniversNews, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo expressed her gratitude to Eban Capitals and NASCO Feeding Minds for its partnership with the University.
She believed that the partnership will help the University achieve its intended purpose of building the legacy project.
“In celebrating [UG’s] 75th anniversary, we wanted to have a project that is long -lasting, a legacy project. And so after several deliberations we’ve settled on some projects which we as, an investor, are embarking on, requiring a lot of capital. So we are happy to have this partnership with Eban and Nasco. I’m glad that we are at the point where we are signing the agreement today.”
Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer of NascoTech and Nasco feeding minds, Banasco Seidu Nuhu described the partnership as allying with the Vice-Chancellor’s digitalization agenda to promote digital literacy in the country.
“We have trained a lot of young people in digital literacy. So we strongly identify with the university and for that matter the Vice-Chancellor’s digitalization agenda. So for us, this partnership would augment our individual efforts in creating digital literacy in our country. We are excited and we are hopeful that after two years, based on the results of the partnership, we’ll be able to do a lot more.”
Chief Executive Officer of Eban Capital Ltd., Jim Amegah also explained that the partnership was created to help the University expand its infrastructure due to the pressure on amenities by the Free SHS policy.
“We realized that the introduction of the free senior high school obviously put pressure on the tertiary institutions, hence the need to expand infrastructure. This is one of the key areas of interest for us and we’re going to work with developing finance for these institutions to be able to raise the resources to invest in the sector. That’s why this partnership is key for us.”
