Lawyer Stephen Boateng (2nd L) inaugurating the board room
THE CHIEF Executive Officer of Kessben Group of Companies, Stephen Boateng Esq, has furnished the board room and office of the faculty of Social Sciences at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, to enhance its activities.
He equipped the board room and the office of the Registrar of the faculty with various items including furniture and smart television sets at the cost of GH¢90,000.
Lawyer Stephen Boateng, an alumnus of the KNUST, inaugurated the facilities at a grand ceremony recently.
The businessman readily offered to support the faculty after its authorities drew his attention to their plight during a visit to the university some time ago.
In his succinct remarks at the inauguration ceremony, the Kessben CEO said his act of kindness was motivated by the significant role KNUST has played in building his capacity as a person and making huge impact on his business.
According to him, the starting point of his success story began at the Social Sciences faculty, hence, his benevolence, stressing that “this is not to pay back for the knowledge imparted to me; but appreciation for the transformation and reshaping of my life.”
The CEO of Kessben Group of Companies implored the authorities to put the facilities to good use to achieve their intended purpose.
The dean of the faculty, Prof. S.R. Eugenia Ampofo, praised Lawyer Stephen Boateng for his support to his alma mater, describing it as overwhelming.
While calling on other alumni to emulate the gesture, Prof. Ampofo stated that there were other unfinished businesses in the new block which needed to be completed to enhance teaching and learning.
