The University of Ghana has officially launched the electronic access control systems at the traditional halls and the University of Ghana Computing System, marking a significant stride in campus security enhancement.

This initiative underscores the university’s commitment to strengthening safety measures on campus.

The inauguration, held yesterday on April 9, 2024, at Legon Hall’s Main Hall, was presided over by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah-Amfo.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor expressed her enthusiasm for the success of the project. According to her, the initiative aligns with her Key Sales Objective (KSO) to develop technology driven processes in the university’s functions.

“I’m very excited today for this event; as I’ve indicated, this project aligns with my second KSO, that is to develop technology driven process in everything we do in the university, teaching and learning, administration and management.”

In highlighting the core rationale behind the project, Prof. Appiah-Amfo cited the need to address security issues within the university head-on. She subsequently conveyed gratitude towards the university community.

“As you’re aware, we were faced with security challenges concerning our students, staff, and anyone associated with the university. When confronted with a challenge, we innovate to find solutions. This project is a testament to the ongoing efforts we are implementing to tackle this challenge head-on.”

“I would like to show appreciation to our students; my sixth KSO is to create a sense of ownership among our students and staff, so when the security challenge came up, we reached out the students and they were on board to support it.”

The SRC President, Mr. Frank Tsikata finally expressed his appreciation to the university management for prioritizing the security concerns of the student body and all the members of the university community at large.
