Appoint Rawlings Chancellor of UDS – TEIN
Tamale, Oct. 17, GNA – The University for Development Studies (UDS) branch of the Tertiary Education Institutions Network (TEIN) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has recommended that the Former President, Dr Jerry John Rawlings, be appointed Chancellor of UDS.
A congratulatory statement signed by Presidents of TEIN in Tamale, Nyankpala, Navrongo and Wa campuses of the University, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Tamale on Wednesday said Dr Rawlings deserved more than the honorary doctorate degree conferred on him by the UDS last Saturday.
The statement, however, commended the University Council for recognizing and showing appreciation for the good work of Dr Rawlings.
It described him as a visionary leader who, despite the odds, made the right decision by establishing the UDS to train the country’s human resource and more particularly to promote higher education in northern Ghana.
The statement recounted Dr Rawlings’ contribution to the establishment of UDS, saying ‘In 1993 he donated a 50, 000.00 US dollars African Prize for the Sustainable End of Hunger Award he won to the UDS.’
It said, ‘We as students of UDS acknowledge the humanitarian gesture by Former President Rawlings and wish to congratulate him for the hard-earned and deserving award from the Council of the UDS.”
