Busia, Ghana’s previous Primary Minister, Nana Afua Dream Busia, has asserted that the College of Ghana deserves to be named immediately after her father, introducing that Akufo-Addo’s assert that the University of Ghana must be named immediately after Nana Joseph Kwame Kyeretwie Boakye Danquah is fallacious.
She states that her father’s contributions to academia,
particularly at the College of Ghana puts him nicely in advance of J.B Danquah who was statesman, pan-Africanist, scholar, attorney, historian and one particular of the
founding fathers of Ghana.
Afua Busia accuses the President of making an attempt to pilfer
valor and company from Prof Busia so as to elevate Dr Danquah over Prof Busia.
In an open up letter to the President, she cites a investigation
perform by 3 professors that concludes that J.B Danquah was not the founder of
the College of Ghana.
There has been widespread controversy about the renaming of
some general public universities after folks joined to the New Patriotic Party( NPP).
Lately, the University of Vitality and Natural Sources was named just after Prof
Busia to the disapproval of several.
For Afua Busia, it is the College of Ghana that should be named just after Prof Busia. She suspects that the President wishes to rename the College of Ghana soon after Danquah so as to put him over and earlier mentioned Prof Busia, who she opines deserves it.
On the tradition of the NPP which is dubbed
Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition, Frema statements that it ought to have been Busia
custom, and that the addition of Danquah is to deny Prof Busia as the
Principal figurehead of the celebration that has sooner or later become the NPP.
