Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia on Thursday, 13 January 2021, launched the University of Ghana Business School’s ‘One Student-One Laptop’ initiative, designed to provide technological access to needy students.

Speaking at the event, Dr Bawumia said in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has transformed teaching and learning from face-to-face to mainly online and through handheld devices, needy students could be disadvantaged.

He, thus, commended the Vice-Chancellor and the management of the Business School for their efforts to bridge the inequality gap.

He urged the alumni of the University of Ghana to continue supporting their alma mater.

The Vice-President also encouraged the alumni of other institutions of higher learning to do the same for their schools.
