President Nana Akufo-Addo has applauded the decision by the Governing Council of the University of Energy and Natural Resources after Dr Kofi Abrefa Busia.

The decision to name it after the country’s Prime Minister in the 2nd Republic was taken by the university’s Governing Council on August 3, in accordance with the Statutes of the University.

“The decision is an excellent one, which will receive the blessing of the President of the Republic, so that, once the parliamentary process has been completed,” he said.

The President made this known on Saturday when he delivered the keynote speech at the 4th Graduation Ceremony of the University in Sunyani in the Bono Region.

“This University will, thereafter, be called the K.A. Busia University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani,” President Akufo-Addo said.

He added, “It is wholly fitting that this great man, who viewed freedom as a great ally of progress, should be properly honoured by a grateful posterity, and, especially, by citizens of his native Bono Region.”
