Surveyor Hohoabu who performed the inauguration ceremony, entreated the executive to work hard to bring honour to the GHIS and enable it to serve the grassroots as well.

He reminded them of the need to have a comprehensive list of the members of institution and bring all and sundry on board to implement the objectives of the association with the highest standards of professionalism.

“Let us also collaborate with the Ho Technical University to promote our goals,” he added.
