Mr. Perry P.K Ofosu, the Registrar of CIBT, in an interview, thanked the Archdiocese of Accra for coming to the Insitute’s aid.

The immediate SRC president of CIBT, Eric Boakye-Mensah in an interview, said “A year ago I led a delegation with the immediate SRC to meet the Chancellor of CIBT, Most Rev. John Bonaventure Kwofie, CSSp, and shared with him some of the challenges confronting us as students of CIBT.
