Skills and Competence
In his address, the Chairman of Campus Security and Safety Committee, Dr. Akwasi Ayanful, noted that security on the University campus was not at its best hence, there was the need to enhance the skills and competences of the security guards. He entreated the security personnel to take the workshop seriously to acquire knowledge to carry out their duties efficiently.

Graham; the Chief Security, DCOP Patrick Adusei Sarpong (rtd); the Project Director for Forensic Investigation for National Development (FIND Ghana), Mr. Abu Sulemana Mohammed and other facilitators from FIND Ghana.
