The newly inducted Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo, has announced that she will begin a ‘one-student-one-Laptop’ initiative to help equip students for the technological drive.
Speaking at her induction ceremony, Prof. Nana Aba Appiah Amfo called on the President to waive taxes on the product to make the devices affordable for students and staff of the institution.
“Mr. President, drawing a cue from you, I intend to institute a ONE STUDENT ONE LAPTOP POLICY, where we collaborate with established IT companies to provide our students and staff with their own laptop/handheld devices. Mr. President, in this regard we will need your support and that of your government to waive taxes for us, making these devices affordable for our students and staff.”
“The need for them to acquire their own laptops/handheld devices is critical in a period where we are upscaling technology to make us functional in the fourth revolution as we live through and beyond a pandemic”, she announced.
