The New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP gave the assurance when he made an unannounced visit to the KUGIS campus on Friday to ascertain current happenings at the school.

Some contractors working on GETFund projects including dormitories at the school have abandoned them, resulting in massive problems such as congestions in the school.

Reports indicate that the school’s authorities, over the past three years, have made frantic efforts to ensure that the contractors return to work, but to no avail.

Hon. Kokofu, after being briefed about the deplorable situation, urged the school authorities to use the high offices to ensure that the recalcitrant contractors return to work.

He described KUGIS as the major second cycle institution in the constituency, promising to contribute his quota as MP to help uplift the image of the school to an appreciable level.

The Bantama MP, during the visit, questioned the management of KUGIS about recent reports in the media that about 400 students had been suspended for violating school regulations.

Hon. Kokofu said the school authorities informed him that some students of the school left campus at an unholy hour during Easter.

He however debunked reports that the final year students had been sacked from the boarding house permanently and would write their final examinations from their residences.

Hon. Kokofu noted that the affected students were only suspended from the boarding house for just one week.

The MP charged students of KUGIS to abide by school regulations, promising to use his share of the GETFund to support ongoing projects at the school including ICT and Assembly Hall projects.
