Four UG Dons Win Awards

On Saturday 16th December 2017 at the National Theatre, four University of Ghana professors won the Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah Genius Award.

The purpose of the award ceremony, the second event of its kind, was to celebrate excellence and recognize the contribution of the African genius to the making of world civilization.  The organisers did a global search for iconic institutions and personalities whose creative efforts have become international references and stamped the African genius on the rest of the world.

Professors Kwame Gyekye, Akua Kuenyenhia, Kofi Agyekum, and Nii Yartey (posthumously) won the awards in the respective categories of Philosophy, Leadership, Language and Performing Arts (dance).

The University of Ghana is very proud of their achievements.
