Welcoming the audience to the commissioning, the Provost of the College, Reverend Professor Patrick Ferdinand Ayeh-Kumi mentioned that the idea of a bookshop on the Korle-Bu Campus was long conceived . He recalled that there was a bookshop on the Korle-Bu Campus when he started work as young a faculty at the University of Ghana Medical School. According to him, when the idea of the bookshop was once again conceived, they had to look for someone they could partner, and fortunately Kingdom Books and Stationery Limited led by the Managing Director, Mr. Peter Gyateng came to the aid of the College. He was thankful to God and the team for making it a reality.
The Managing Director of Kingdom Books and Stationery Limited, Mr. Peter Gyateng in his address expressed his pleasure working with the team from the College of Health Sciences.
