Nkoranza (B/A), Feb.2, GNA - The Anglican Church of Ghana is to establish a University College at Nkoranza in the Brong-Ahafo Region, the Venerable Peter Kwadwo Sakyi, Archdeacon of Nkoranza, told the Ghana News Agency.

He said the College, to be known as the Anglican Institute of Technology, would be 93secular but Christian in character".

The Venerable Sakyi who is also the local Manager of Anglican schools in Nkoranza district, said the Omanhene of the traditional area, Okatakyie Agyeman Kudom IV, had earmarked a six mile-square land on the Nkoranza-Kintampo main road for the construction of permanent structures for the institution.

He said the Omanhene had also arranged for temporary structures at the defunct project site of the British-American Tobacco Company at Nkoranza.

The Archdeacon said the necessary feasibility studies towards the project had been carried out and that the college would start operating by October this year.

He said the college would focus on science, technology and engineering training and would be committed to research and development, as well as innovation and dissemination of ideas.

Venerable Sakyi said the Church had more than 300 of such institutions worldwide and that lecturers would be drawn from selected countries to run the Nkoranza college.

He commended the Omanhene for his untiring efforts to ensure success of the educational project, saying the chief promised to organize his sub-chiefs to raise funds to support it.Source:
