The Ghana Association of University Administrators, University of Cape Coast chapter (GAUA-UCC) has welcomed its new executives.

Mr Ebenezer Aggrey, the outgone president in a handing over speech highlighted the achievements of his administration and entrusted unfinished projects to the incoming executives.

He noted that, during their tenure, they ensured the timely payment of the book and research allowance. They were able to better project the association by making available stickers, the national polo shirts which are worn on Wednesdays and national cloth which was pre-financed with 10,000 GH cedis for members.

The Earth Observation Research and Innovation Centre (EORIC) of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) has inaugurated a US$1.2 million COSMIC-2 Satellite Ground Station (GS) on Tuesday at the Sunyani campus.

The GS, funded by the United States of America (USA) National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Taiwan National Space Organisation (NSPO) is for weather monitoring in the Tropics and it could predict or forecast weather for four days ahead.

It is the only one in Africa and among eight others in Taiwan, Guam, Hawaii, Honduras, Brazil, Kuwait, Mauritius and Australia “to receive improved atmospheric data that promises to increase weather forecast skill”.

Kotokuraba Market

The allocation of stalls to traders at the newly constructed Kotokuraba Market continues to breed controversies as traders are furious about the manner in which the whole allocation process is being done.

During the Commissioning of the Market on Tuesday 29th November, 2016, the then President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama promised traders that there would be no form of favoritism in allocating shops to traders at the new market.

He explained the initial traders in the old market who were ejected before the construction would have shops allocated them first before other interested traders would be considered but that seems not the case.
