Receiving the items, the Ag. Principal of COLTEK, Prof. Frederick Kwaku Sarfo described the gesture as timely, thoughtful and praiseworthy. He said COLTEK Management was aware of how challenging it had been for the SRC Executives during the 2018/2019 academic year.
He therefore, commended them highly for being able to team up with Management to navigate around the various challenges that arose and succeeding in preventing potential students’ unrests and their likely attendant destruction to property and life on campus. He assured them that the PA Systems would be duly mounted in the classrooms and their security and proper maintenance ensured.

Presenting the PA Systems, the SRC President, Mr. Charles Amartey Tagoe explained that the SRC Executives had observed the inadequacy of PA Systems in the College which impacted adversely on teaching and learning and decided among others to address the challenge.
“It is our expectation that these PA Systems would be mounted in some of the large lecture rooms on campus to address the challenge of lecturers, sometimes, having to shout, making their voices hoarse during lectures in order to be audible enough to the large number of students that usually throng some of the lecture rooms on campus,” he said.
