Vice-Chancellor's Congratulatory Message
The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ghartey Ampiah, congratulated the Sports Team on its dedication and hard work. Applauding the LOC, he said “you had little time to plan and organise this competition, but you delivered your tasks immensely to achieve the success of the tournament”. Prof. Ampiah commended the sports men and women for their commitment and resilient performance, adding that “I believe we have supported sports development in UCC but we need to step up. We also need to boost the morale of our sports men and women and motivate them in so that they become interested in sports activities.”
The Vice-Chancellor expressed gratitude to the team for maintaining its sterling performance and also securing a slot to represent the country in Egypt. This, he said, “it is about internationalization – selling and making the University across the world.” He wished them well in all their upcoming tournaments and said “Ayekoo.”
