The Member of Parliament for Ho Central, Hon. Benjamin Komla Kpodo has presented dozens of disposable face masks to nine (9) tertiary institutions including Ho Technical University.

The presentation which took place at the G.M. Afeti Auditorium on Monday, February 8, 2020, saw HTU receiving two cartons, containing 5,000 pieces of masks.

According to the MP, the gesture, which was earlier extended to basic and second cycle schools in the Constituency, was his modest support towards curbing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the schools.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ben Q. Honyenuga, who received the items on behalf of the beneficiary institutions, thanked the MP for his kind gesture, and added “We should all be one another’s keeper. Covid-19 knows no bounds.”
