During the presentation, the Registrar, Surv. Paul Osei-Barima Esq. affirmed that UEW does not work alone but work with other decentralised departments particularly the Security Services. He stated that the donation was to facilitate the work of the Security Services and also strengthen the relationship between the parties involved.   

The Vice-Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni said “we are very mindful of the fact that we live in a community and we ought to have an excellent relationship with the community.

The Vice-Chancellor hinted that UEW donated an amount of GH₵ 50,000 to the Effutu Municipal Assembly a few months ago. This according to him was to help the Assembly to provide lighting to the whole Municipality to brighten up dark places and ensure the safety of the inhabitants thereby reducing crime. “We do this for the township and we do this for our people and for our students. We are very thankful to you for coming and we are hoping that we will be able to continue having a good relationship.”

The Winneba Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Godfrey Adjirakor-Tetteh thanked the Management of the University on behalf of his colleagues. He pledged that the Police Service would continue to intensify patrols as far as security in Winneba and its environs was concerned. He added that the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Central Regional Commander and the Divisional Commander, Swedru would be informed about the benevolent act portrayed by UEW.
