On Thursday August 20, 2020, a sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of a 24-seater sanitary facility with a mechanized borehole was performed by the Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation (Dr. Dominic Eduah)at Nzima-Mensah Hall of the Takoradi Technical University. He was assisted by the Deputy Minister of Energy & MP for Effia Constituency (Hon. Joseph Cudjoe) and the VC of TTU (Rev. Prof. J.F Eshun). Also present were the Hall Warden of Nzima-Mensah Hall (Mr. Eric Bruce-Amartey Jnr), the Director for Works & Physical Development (Mr. Philip Kwao), Dean of Students’ Affairs (Mr. Owusu Ansah Ankrah), TTU National Alumni General Secretary (Mr. Joshua Kwabena Anim) and the CEO of Dabboat Group of Companies (Mr. Samuel Boateng).
This was in response to a proposal presented to the GNPC Foundation by the Office of the Hall Warden of Nzima-Mensah Hall.
The construction of the facility is expected to help put to an end the open defecation by students within the bush near the Hall during the perennial water shortage that occurs during the dry season.
