Honoring its commitments to help in the fight against COVID-19 in Ghana, Consolidated Bank Ghana (CBG) donated 50 laptop computers to the KNUST Hospital in Kumasi. The donated laptops will support bright students of KNUST in need of assistance to participate effectively in the KNUST’s modified course/program delivery mode adopted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting at a donation event held in Kumasi, the Director of Retail and Business Banking at CBG Mr. Emmanuel Niikoi noted that modfied teaching and learning approaches adopted by institutions in response to the pandemic emphasize virtual or contactless class sessions, which demand that students have access to digital technologies and platforms.

Therefore, in line with CBG’s interest to help in wider social issues including education, we saw the need to support KNUST’s SONSOL Project to ensure smooth online academic work amid the pandemic,” Mr. Niikoi added

Vice Chancellor of KNUST Prof. Rita Akosua Dickson received the package of laptops from Mr. Emmanuel Niikoi and expressed appreciation to Consolidated Bank Ghana for assisting the SONSOL Project.

We are grateful to the board, management, and staff of CBG for these laptops. We can’t thank you enough. We also look forward to more. Ayekoo to CBG.”
