On Thursday, July 13, 2017, at 8:30am, the Management of ANUC led by Dr. Samuel H.B. Donkor (Founder and President) officially visited Hon. Eric Kwakye Darfour (Newly Appointed Eastern Regional Minister) at his office.

The Eastern Regional Chief Director, Mr. R. K Sambo, formally introduced the Eastern Regional Minster, Hon. Eric Kwakye Darfour, Deputy Eastern Regional Minister, Hon. Joseph Tetteh, and other retinue to the ANUC management.

Dr. Donkor congratulated the Minister on his appointment. He also briefed the Minister on the historic launched and deployment of the GhanaSat-1 into space. The narratives began on the first CubeSat in 2012, the development of the ground station by the ANUC Engineers, the registration of the GhanaSat-1, control and monitoring mechanism, the lifespan of the Satellite, the importance and the missions, cost of the whole project, risks involved, and previous achievements. The visions behind the project and future expectation towards the building up of GhanaSat-2 were clearly spelt out.

After a series of inquiries, Hon. Darfour overwhelmingly applauded the entire Management and ANUC Satellite Engineers for making Ghana a space faring nation in Sub-Sahara Africa and the continent at large: “Thank you very much for making Eastern Region and Ghana proud, and we are looking forward to create a formidable and cordial relationship between your institution and the government.”

“We hope this satellite will directly or indirectly contribute greatly to the economic growth and development of our country,” he added. He further asserted that, there is the need for the government to consider some tax reliefs on Universities that have ventured into rigorous academic researches, inventions and technologies. He also promised to visit Ground Station and pledged to support any good work of All Nations University.
