First-Ever Vehicle Donation to UGBS
Nov 01, 2022

On Friday, 21st October 2022, the Dean, together with some faculty and staff of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), officially received a car donation (Nissan Kicks 2021 model) from Two (2) alumni, Mr. Prince Amoatia Younge and Mr. Richmond Kofi Selby, and their business partner Mr. John Theophilus Warmann. The ceremony was held at the foyer of the main campus of the University of Ghana Business School.

In his opening remarks, the School Administrator, Mr. Emmanuel Poku-Sarkodee, highlighted that the Alumni Relations Office of the Business School has been facing several challenges, including mobility in the discharge of their duties. Due to this, the school decided to get funding for a vehicle to support the office’s activities. Fortunately, the partners came in and graciously agreed to purchase a vehicle for the alumni office.
In a brief remark, Prof. Justice N. Bawole, Dean of the Business School who was full of joy indicated that the school has several strategies, and one involves identifying stakeholders and engaging them. He added that it is as part of this strategy that the school established the Alumni Relations Office, which also supports the school's, Endowment Fund. Speaking about the donation, Prof Bawole, expressed the school's excitement and appreciation to the partners for securing the car for the alumni office. The donated car was fully fuelled with a comprehensive insurance for a year.

For his part, Mr. John Warmann who spoke on behalf of his partners, mentioned that they are happy and proud to be associated with such a noble course, hence they did not hesitate to offer their support when the request was made to them. According to him, they have shared vision see young people become business executives, so they were willing to support to ensure that the school got what it needed to carry out its duties. He mentioned that their company has benefitted from the knowledge of some alumni of the Business School (the two other partners and the company’s accountant), and so this donation has also served as a way of giving back to society. Mr. Warmann added, that moving forward, if the school needs any assistance, they will support if they’re in the capacity to do so.

The ceremony ended with an appreciation from the Dean on behalf of the Business School and the University of Ghana at large. Prof. Bawole said, “these are very tough times and it takes someone who is very committed to something to dish out resources in small quantities, let alone the magnitude of this.”
