UDS Must Be Renamed After J. J Rawlings- Says Akufo-Addo

The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo called that the University of Development Studies be renamed after the late Jerry John Rawlings.

While addressing the congregation at the UDS 2020 graduation ceremony over the weekend the President stated that J.J needs to be remembered for setting up the School.

According to him while the former President was alive he suggested that the School be renamed after him but he declined the offer.

“He respectfully declined the honour and offer because of his principle not to have national monuments and facilities named after him,” he stated.

“Notwithstanding these sentiments and with all due respect to him, it is my strong belief that such an honour should be accorded him,” he said.

The former President was said to have played a role in the establishment of the University.
