President Nana Akufo Addo at the 20th Anniversary Remembrance Celebration of Dr. Hilla Limann announced plans to rename the Wa Polytechnic after the former president.
The renaming will be completed after parliament’s approval and the conversion of the Polytechnic to a Technical University.
The President indicated that, the name of the school will be changed from Wa Polytechnic to Hilla Limann Polytechnic, during the event which took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on Tuesday, January 23.
President Nana Addo said, “The governing Council of Wa Polytechnic in the Upper West Region, in its meeting on 18th January unanimously proposed to the dynamic Minister for Education that the institution should be renamed after Dr Hilla Limann. The Minister has sought my view on this, and I have indicated to him my happy agreement to this proposal. Once the parliamentary process has been completed, the Wa polytechnic will henceforth be called the Hilla Limann Polytechnic. The name will remain with the conversion of the polytechnic into a technical university”.
