Nana Obeng Opoku Tanor II (Chief of Kwahu Borukuwa) is said to have indicated that, he is ready to make lands available for the establishment of the Donkorkrom campus of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development.

This was made known by the District Chief Executive of the Kwahu Afram Plains North District, Hon. Isaac Ofori Koree on March 20, 2023, after a delegation led by Prof. Eric Nyarko Sampson (Vice Chancellor – University of Environment and Sustainable Development) visited the Borukuwa Chief.

The delegation included Hon. Isaac Ofori Koree (DCE – Kwahu Afram Plains North), Hon. Isaac Agyapong (DCE – Kwahu East) and Prof Eric Nyarko Sampson among, Mrs Mary Abena Agyapong (Registrar – UESD), Mr. Baffour Awuah Kwabi (Director of Finance – UESD) others.

In his address, Nana Obeng Opoku Tanor II praised the University authorities for the progress made so far in acquiring land to expand the University.

He promised to lead the delegation on a tour to the allocated land and other key facilities in the Donkorkrom community and assured to raise the necessary lands to actualize the establishment University.

The people of Kwahu Afram Plains North, led Hon. Betty Krosby Mensah (Member of Parliament – Kwahu Afram Plains North Constituency) had earlier demonstrated against the decision of the Nana Addo led administration to change the establishment of the University of Environment and Sustainable Development from Donkorkrom to Bunsu.

Hon. Isaac Ofori Koree however indicated that, his checks after resuming office as DCE showed that, there wasn’t any as such and they are yet to secure a land for the establishment of the University.
