The Chinese Ambassador to Ghana, His Excellency Sheng Tin Yong has described the campus of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as the most beautiful in Africa.
According to him, KNUST has the cleanest campus, and the serene nature of the campus coupled with its beautiful floral make the campus the best in Africa.
He made this known when he paid a courtesy call on the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof Obiri Danso on Thursday, November 22 2018.
‘The campus of this university is very beautiful. This is the most beautiful campus I have ever seen in Africa,’ he said.
The ambassador also expressed that KNUST campus is huge and well-organized with beautiful scenery to match.
He commended the students for their hospitality.
‘The students on campus are also very friendly, when they saw me, they said ‘hi’ in Chinese,’ he said. The ambassador hinted that plans are underway to more partnership and collaboration between KNUST and some universities in China.
It will be recalled that TV personality, Nana Aba Anamoah while on a visit to KNUST for TeKTalK few months ago made similar comment regarding the beauty of KNUST campus.
H.E. Yong’s comment came at the time when the institution is still recovering from a major vandalism that rocked its campus last month.
The university has since estimated the cost of destruction to property which included some beautiful edifices and security features among other things at 1.6 million Ghana cedis.
