As part of its corporate social responsibility to the community in which its operates, the Milton Margai Technical University (MMTU) has installed 15 solar street lights from the Lady Patricia Kabba Secondary School onto the college’s exit gate, a distance of about a mile.

This is the first time in the over 50 years history of the college that street lights have been installed along the road leading to the college.

The 15 solar street lights, accessories and installation cost over Le15 million and according to Mr. Maada Tejan, Dean of the Congo Cross campus, the funds were provided by the government of Sierra Leone, through President Dr. Julius Maada Bio for which he commended government for the support.

He revealed that the area where the streets have been installed was dangerous as night as thieves attacked and snatched the bags, mobile phones and other valuables from people but that with the installation of the solar street lights this would be a thing of the past and appealed to the people to protect the lights that is their property.

Mr. Maada Tejan also assured that with additional funds, more solar street lights would be installed in other parts of the Goderich community and enticed the people to protect the college’s land and property that belongs to all Sierra Leoneans.

Most of the people interviewed in the community commended the principal and administration of the college for the initiative which they underscored is the first since the college was established over 50 years ago and appealed to the college for more support in other areas.
