Dr Kwame Addo Kufour the former top government official who served in the capacity of Minister of Defense during ex-President Kufour’s administration has been appointed and sworn in as the first chancellor of the Kumasi Technical University.

The grand event that took place on September 30, 2022 in Kumasi predictably saw esteemed individuals gracing the occasion including former President John Agyekum Kufour, Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, MP for Bosomtwe Constituency, Yaw Osei Adutwum, among others.

Speaking at the event, Dr Bawumia delivered a beautiful oration in which he commended the administration of the university for such an excellent choice of a distinguished person to serve in the enviable capacity.
