The Vice-Chancellor of the C.K Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences, Professor Eric Magnus Wilmot has stated that the university has introduced more relevant programs that will have a positive impact, especially on the development of the Upper East Region, for it to become the eye of the Northern part of Ghana.
Comparing Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and the impact of same on the development of the country, he said, the CK Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences is here to do same and even more, for the people of the area.
Professor Wilmot said: “I take it that the present government that established the CK Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences is making a statement that, if the experiment with KNUST has worked for the nation, and the northern side is still deprived, then we need a model like that. So, I take my position very seriously, and I look at it as a challenge to us, we need to lay a good foundation, such that this place will become an engine of Development for northern Ghana”
“Maybe when I’m old, I will come back here to see this university migrated to become a world-class university.” He said on Day Break Upper East on A1 Radio.
