I sat among the many old boys and guests as Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, a member of the APSU 1971 year group walked to the podium and announced his intention of building a modern dormitory for his alma mater. Some were sceptical, but I believed it and indeed thanked him publicly in an article written in October 2012 titled: ?Celebrating Augusco?.
The Groupe Nduom Foundation funded the GHS 500,000 project. The foundation is funded by contributions from the Groupe Nduom Companies which include – First National Savings and Loans, Coconut Grove Hotel, and Gold Coast Securities, among others.

The facility which was consecrated by the Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, Most Rev. Mathias Nketsia was commissioned on Saturday, October 11th, 2014.
Today I thank the Almighty Father that I am alive to see this honourable gentleman honour his pledge. Very worthy example! I join the rest of APSU and society in saluting Dr. Nduom.
Dr Nduom, who is a business consultant, is married to Yvonne Nduom an accomplished management specialist. The couple have four children Nana Kweku, Edjah, Papa Wassa and Nana Aba.
Dr Nduom was the 2012 Presidential Candidate of the Progressive Peoples Party (PPP).
