He said the University currently had about 30 teaching and non-teaching staff as it had become the latest employment avenue for young graduates in it’s catchment area.

Municipal Chief Executive for Ho, Divine Bosso, lauded the founders of the University for their resolve to deepen access to tertiary education and to promote entrepreneural advancement, adding that the coming on stream of Adonai University was another long jump for tertiary education in the country especially the Volta region.
