President unhappy with Wa Poly’s delay to effect name change

 President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed unhappiness with the Wa Polytechnic for the delay to change the institution’s name to Hilla Limann Polytechnic several months after the announcement was made.

President Akufo-Addo in January 2018 renamed the Polytechnic to Hilla Limann Polytechnic following a recommendation by the governing Council of the Polytechnic who unanimously proposed to the Minister for Education that the institution be renamed after the former President.

The move was meant to keep the memory of the late Ghana’s former President alive, but authorities of the Polytechnic are yet to effect the change and this the President witnessed as part of this tour of the region.

The President visited the Polytechnic on Tuesday to commission an Amatrol Teaching and Learning Systems Laboratory.

On arrival on the campus, he was surprised to see the old name still boldly written at the school’s main entrance and on other directional sign posts.

President Akufo-Addo later held a meeting with members of the Upper West Regional House of Chiefs in Wa as part of his three-day tour of the Region.

It was there he said: “Some time ago, the Governing Council of the Polytechnic came to me to tell me that they want to rename the Polytechnic after Dr Hilla Limann and I agreed and made the announcement publicly, “So it is not my decision”.

He appealed to the chiefs to impress upon the Polytechnic officials to effect the change to make it Hilla Limann Polytechnic while they work towards converting it to Hilla Limann Technical University.
