GIMPA begins work on 350-seater auditorium

Management of Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) on Friday cut the sod for construction work to begin on the 350-seater auditorium for the Institute.

Dr Christina  Amoako-Nuama, Chairman of GIMPA Governing Council, said the project was necessary because the institution does not have an auditorium for its international programmes saying when completed the project would enhance teaching and learning for the Institute.

Dr Amoako-Nuama said the cost of the project is GH¢ 1.486 million which is funded by the Ghana Education Trust Fund and is expected to be completed in November 2013.

Mr Cornelius Atsu Defeamakpor, Technical Officer of GET fund, said their outfit was mandated to provide funds for the project in its quest to facilitate teaching and learning in the institute.

He said The Ghana Education Trust Fund was established by an Act of Parliament in 2000 (Act 581) with the object of providing finance to supplement the provision of education at all levels by government.

Mr Osei Poku, Project Consultant for the project, said they would also work assiduously to meet the stated deadline.

GIMPA was established by the United Nations in 1961 and has served as a world-class centre of excellence providing several Ghanaians and others from the sub-region with quality training in management, administration, governance and leadership and development training programmes.
