Eight prolific Ghanaian scholars were inducted into the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences (GAAS) in Accra, for their tremendous contributions to the development of arts and sciences in the country. The event took place on Tuesday, 17th November, 2020. Professor Joshua Yindenaba Abor, the immediate past Dean of the University of Ghana Business School, was part of the inductees who were honoured at the ceremony. The Academy aims to encourage the creation, acquisition, dissemination, and utilisation of knowledge for national development through the promotion of learning.
Speaking at the induction ceremony as part of activities of the 2020 Founder’s week celebration of the GAAS under the theme “This COVID-19 Pandemic”, the President of the Academy, Professor Henrietta J.A.N. Mensa-Bonsu, stated “2020 has been a time of trial, a time of triumph and a time of contrast. “With no warning of what is to come, COVID-19 hit the world and changed all our lives. The changes caused us all to reorganise and restructure our business models to give future and directions to the younger generation”, she said.
Commenting on his new status as a Fellow of the Ghana Academy of Arts and Science, Professor Joshua Yindenaba Abor expressed his excitement and privilege to be called on by the Board to give his quota to the advancement and the development of the academy. In an interview with him, he stated, “it is an honour for your scholarship to be recognised by a body like the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences. Therefore, I will certainly support this cause for national development”.
The Dean of the UGBS, Professor Justice N. Bawole, and some faculty members, graced the occasion to show their support to Professor Abor and offer congratulatory messages as well. The University of Ghana Business School is proud of Professor Abor on his new status and wishes him the best in all his endeavours. Ayekoo.
