I Am Proud Of You; Rebecca Akufo-Addo On Husband’s Doctorate Award

The First Lady of Ghana, Rebecca Akufo-Addo has congratulated her husband, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his honorary doctorate award.

Rebecca took to his Twitter page to congratulate her husband a day after he received the award from the University of Sorbonne in France.

“Congratulations sweetheart @NAkufoAddo on your honorary doctorate from The University of Sorbonne, in Paris, an honour previously bestowed on the likes of Pablo Picasso, Kofi Annan, Amartya Sen and Nelson Mandela”.

She concluded, “I am proud of you”, and added a red heart emoji to express her love for him.

The President of Ghana was honoured by the University on October 10, 2022, for the introduction of free Senior High School Education, his leadership during the COVID-19 outbreak and his commitment to peace in the West African sub-region, the Presidency reported.

“Sorbonne University conferred the award on President Akufo-Addo, in recognition of his commitment to entrenching the values of democracy in Ghana, fostering peace within the West African Region, guaranteeing access to a minimum of senior high school education for all of Ghana’s children through the implementation of the Free SHS policy, and also for the leadership shown in the fight against COVID-19, amongst others”.

This is the fourth Honorary Doctorate Degree to be conferred on the President.

The first was an Honorary Doctor of Law Degree conferred on him in May 2016, from the celebrated Fort Hare University of South Africa; an honorary doctor of humane letters degree from the University of Liberia bestowed on him in December 2017; another from the University of Cape Coast in May 2021.

Some Social media users chose to join the First Lady in congratulating the President, however, others chided the couple for romancing amidst the struggles of the country.
