There is no restriction in belonging to ASU because it is a social organization devoid of political mayhem or influences. It is our responsibility to be watchdogs in things that are going on in society and support our own. This building is more than just a physical structure; it represents our shared commitment to the growth, unity, and empowerment of Asante students,” he added.

On his part, ASU National Patron, Otumfuo Twafuohene thanked Dr. Edusei and the remaining founding fathers for the support and encouragement given to ASU and their commitment to the growth of Asanteman.
