The Director-General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Professor Amin Alhassan says the Corporation is committed to using its resources to support the development of education in the country.

This, he said, will be done through collaboration with educational institutions, especially, the new tertiary institutions, since they have not been given much media attention.

Professor Amin Alhassan said this at a meeting at Broadcasting House in Accra with officials from the University of Environment and Sustainable Development, which is the latest public University situated at Somanya in the Eastern Region.

The only public University in the Eastern Region commenced academic work over the weekend with an intake of more than 40 students. Authorities of the school saw the need to collaborate with and consult stakeholders to announce their existence and the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation was seen as one of the appropriate institutions to collaborate with.

Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Eric Nyarko Sampson said the University is engaging its students in community development projects and this needs the support of the media, hence the call on GBC.

Director General of GBC, Prof. Amin Alhassan said the Corporation is committed to collaborating with institutions and use its resources to support education as a public media organisation.

The Registrar of the School, Mrs. Mary Abena Agyepong entreated parents to encourage their wards to enroll at the school.
