Acentia Energy refurbished a computer lab at Ringway Estate Basic School in Korle Klottey Municipality in Greater Accra Region. The refurbished facility now has 20 computers and internet connectivity. Managing Director of Acentia Energy Mr. Kofi Ankama described the project as part of the company’s CSR commitments and expects to extend it other parts of Ghana.


“As part of our CSR, we thought it fit that we choose a school which falls within Osu where we can also assist by giving them the necessary equipment they need.”

The Osu Mantse, Notse Nii Nortey Owuo IV played a facilitating role in getting the project to the community and the project was part of the Osu Mantse to create opportunities for the youth in Osu, including encouraging the learning of information technology.

Commissioning the centre, Nii Owuo Owuo IV noted that the project’s completion was a culmination of the efforts by Acentia Energy to support the progress of the Osu community. He noted that education had moved beyond chalk and the board and that individuals who hope to make an impact on society have no choice but to become IT literate.

“So, it is an important task to ensure that all children throughout Ghana have the skills, tools and teaching necessary to get them there. If we do our best to improve the lives of our children today, we are sure and guaranteed that we have a better tomorrow.”

Nii Nortey Owuo IV appealed to citizens of goodwill to support his commitment to bring educational infrastructure and development to other communities under the Osu Traditional Authority such as Boi, Pappau, Haatso, Kotobabi and others.

Special guest of honor Professor Nii Narku Quaynor commended the Osu Mantse and management of Acentia Energy for investing in activities that will bring economic freedom to the people of Osu. Prof. Quaynor said it was important to provide young people with opportunities to engage in the transformation that is being spurred by the movement into a cyberspace world where computing and telecommunications are key to success.

Headteacher of Ringway Estate Basic School, Ruth Ahumah, and Head of Human Resource at the Educational Directorate of Korle Klottey Municipality, Mr. Seth Obiri Mante, expressed appreciation to the Osu Mantse and management of Acentia Energy for the ICT centre.
