Sod Cutting Ceremony

On April 2, 2014, Regent University College of Science and Technology, was led by its Founder & President, Prof. E.K Larbi and the Senior Vice President, Mr. Albert Amonoo to cut sod for the commencement of construction of its ultra-modern purpose built campus project at McCarthy Hill, Accra. This exercise marks a new chapter in the university’s history as it commits to becoming a leading, cutting-edge university in Africa, producing purpose driven human resource with science and technology expertise to function as change agents in our competitive global environment.

Amid shouts of joy, praises, and appreciation to God for how far the good Lord has brought the University, Prof. E.K. Larbi, led the gathering to read Deuteronomy 8: 1-19; 28:1-14. Inspired by these texts, he reminded the gathering of the numerous promises of God concerning the university, with particular emphasis on the hope that God is taking the university to a place of great prominence.  

Professor Larbi said that with “increased commitment and dedication we can expect and experience prosperity in abundance.” He was in high spirits as he encouraged a cross section of students, faculty members and staff with tales of the audacious beginnings of the university when they faced a plethora of adversity but still triumphed.  He said “we faced all sorts of challenges like law suits and family feuds but in all that we overcame the challenges.”


Among the special guest and dignitaries in attendance was Apostle Michael Aseidu, Witness Director of the Church of Pentecost, and a Member of the Council of the University. He prayed and committed this project and the university into the hands of God. Also in attendance was the Municipal Chief Executive Officer of Weija Municipal Assembly, Honorable Jerry A. Thompson. He was accompanied by other friends from the Municipality to witness the ceremony.

The Lead Engineer for the project, Eng. George Kwabena Asiedu assured the university of his team’s capacity to deliver high standard buildings and on schedule. He assured that they have assembled the best in the industry to lead the project and that the project upon completion can withstand any storm or earthquake.

A Chinese construction firm, Happy Check Company Ltd, has been contracted to build the structures. On his part, Mr. Hao Ye, Managing Director for the company said, “I am very grateful to God that we can be involved in this project. We will work hard and do quality work and finish on time”

The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by December, 2014 to facilitate the movement of the University to a central location. It is the hope of the university that once this project is completed more courses will be introduced with resulting increases in overall student enrolment.

On the 21st of September, 2013, the Google Students Club of Regent University had a National Volunteer Day event dubbed EmpowerU at iSpace in Osu. The proggramme was to commemorate the National Volunteers Day which falls on September 21 or Founder’s Day. The day, set apart by the African Union, is to commemorate the birth day of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and other founders of Ghana. Ghana’s founders served Ghana very well and hence the call on September 21 for Ghanaians to do some volunteer work to serve their country.

The event featured technology talks on Google, the Google Student Ambassador Programme, Robotics, Entrepreneurship and Talent Development. The main objectives of the event were to encourage as many people as possible to do some volunteer work, teach people about the usefulness of the internet technology, entrepreneurship and how to nurture talents to become useful members of society. Simply put, the event was to serve one main purpose; empower the youth in Ghana and world over.

Some of the resource persons who spoke at the event were; Mr. Nelson Amo (President, Innobub Ghana), Mr. Josiah Eyison Co-Founder, iSpace Foundation, Mr. Benjamin Nortey (Metro Institute of Technology), and our very own Google Student Ambassador, Michael Mettle-Nunoo.

The entire event was streamed live over the internet for people from all over the world to join. Although there had been very little time to promote the event, over 50 viewers watched from around the world (including viewers from the U.S.A and UK).  Fifteen (15) volunteers from Regent University and neighbouring communities participated in the programme. Furthermore, the social media advertisements announcing the event reached a total of 13,110 people. The recorded footage of the event is still available to watch on YouTube.
