In his address, His Excellency Ali Halabi exhorted students to exhibit excellence so that the Lebanese community will be justified in injecting resources into their studies.

Prof. Daniel Asiedu, Provost of the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, who represented the Vice-Chancellor, commended the Lebanese community in Ghana for their benefaction. He was hopeful that the scholarships would encourage students to achieve greater heights. He appealed to other organisations and stakeholders to extend their support in the area of graduate studies as well as support female students pursuing science and applied sciences programmes.
Prof. Edward Kofi Quashigah, Dean of the School of Law, expressed gratitude to the Lebanese community for its unflinching support for the promotion of education in the country. The Dean also emphasized the need for the beneficiaries to distinguish themselves and aim at high academic performances as worthy beneficiaries.
