The President of the Republic and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), President Akufo-Addo is advocating that the University for Development Studies (UDS) should be renamed after the late former President Jerry John Rawlings.
Addressing congregants of UDS at a graduation ceremony in Tamale, in the Northern Region, he said that Mr. Rawlings deserves to be praised for his immense role in the establishment of the school.
President Akufo-Addo revealed that the former President had earlier declined the offer for the school to be named after him.
“He respectfully declined the honour and offer because of his principle not to have national monuments and facilities named after him.”
“Notwithstanding these sentiments and with all due respect to him, it is my strong belief that such an honour should be accorded to him,” he said.
