Mr. Asante said the Institute is a self-financing public University but needs urgent support to tackle the issue of hostel facilities and other infrastructure. Mr. Asante was speaking at the Jubilee House when he led the Governing Council of GIMPA to pay a courtesy call on the President and also introduce the new Rector of the School, Professor Samuel Bonsu.

The Council since assumption of office has initiated moves to expand the facilities of GIMPA such as lecture rooms. However, the school currently has no library to boast of and there is no single hostel on campus. Mr. Asante said he has been talking quietly to GET Fund authorities and appealed to the President to use his good office to intervene.

President Akufo-Addo congratulated the newly appointed Rector and the Governing Council for their appointment. He noted that the request by the Council Chairperson will be given the necessary consideration.

GIMPA was established in 1961 as a joint Ghana Government/United Nations (UN) Special Fund Project. Originally named the Institute of Public Administration, it was set up as one of the key strategic institutions to develop the public administrative system, to provide civil servants with administrative and professional competence, and to plan and administer national, regional and local services.
