Huawei has donated an ICT laboratory worth USD400,000 to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), the Ghana News Agency reported. The lab had been promised to President John Evans Atta Mills during his visit to China last year. Huawei had already provided one such centre for the University of Cape Coast (UCC) in the Central Region. Ernest Atukwei Armah, Deputy Minister of Communications, said it was refreshing for the company to provide computer laboratories for four major public universities in Ghana. Diana Ayem, Deputy MD of Huawei Technologies, said the educational initiative was being promoted globally to facilitate the development of ICT and talent through cooperation with colleges and universities in different countries. Ayem said the company would sponsor the training of two lecturers from KNUST at its training centre in Lagos. They would also accept students on national service leading to the employment of those who perform well.
