University of Ghana Launches Campus Wide CCTV To Provide 24/7 Campus Surveillance

An alumnus of the University, Mr. Emmanuel Sekyere Asiedu, has donated a solar-backed Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) Surveillance system to the University. The installation was jointly unveiled by the Vice-Chancellor and Mr. Sekyere Asiedu.

Mr. Sekyere Asiedu, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Virtual Security Africa (VSA), said he was moved to do this to assist the University to ward off crime and to assure a secure and safe environment for members of the university community especially students.

He was assisted in this endeavour by the Independent Power Supply Implementation Team, an initiative of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu.

In his remarks, Mr. Sekyere Asiedu noted that he was inspired to come to the assistance of his alma mater following the spate of attacks on students along the road leading from the Africa Union hostels to Evandy hostel situated on the University’s Legon campus and also in line with the corporate social responsibility of his company. He said as an alumnus, he believed he was obliged to give back to his alma mater.
