Livingstone K Buama, former Acting Chairman of UEW Governing

Council, Alhaji Gibrine Adam, President of Zenith University

College, and Professor Michael Shattock, from the University of

London, United Kingdom.

The four were awarded with ?Honorary Doctorate Degrees.?

Speaking at the congregation, the Vice-Chancellor of

UEW, Professor Akwasi Asabere-Ameyaw, pointed out that recipients

of honorary doctorate degrees from the University did not earn the

degrees through academic achievements.

Rather, he said, they won such awards through generous

and altruistic actions or lifetime accomplishments that benefited a

community, nation or humanity in general.

Prof Asabere ?Ameyaw said the University currently

could boast of a student-population of over 40,000 spread across

four campuses at six sites and 27 distance education study centres.

For a period of five years, we have consistently

graduated not less than 10,000 professionals every year, adding

that cumulatively UEW has graduated a total of over 100,000

teachers anther professional since its inception in 1996, he said.

The VC said the University at its inception,

inherited structures and facilities from the Seven Diploma Awarding

Institutions that birthed it.

He said The University therefore embarked on a

massive upgrading of teaching-learning materials and

infrastructural development, adding though a lot remained to be

done, there wss a number of modern faculty and office complexes

constructed at all the campuses.

Former President Kufuor, on behalf of the awardees,

thanked the UEW for the honour done them.

The former President appealed to all public sector

employees, especially members of the Ghana Medical Association,

that for the ultimate humanitarian consideration for the suffering

masses of the people, and with their case so strongly made, to

restrain themselves from taking the final step of irreparable

damage to the nation.
