Busia’s contribution to national dev’t indelible: Prof. Oquaye
The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, has paid glowing tribute to the memory of Dr Kofi Abrefa Busia, Ghana’s Prime Minister in the Second Republic, describing him as a gem whose contribution to national development remains indelible. Speaking at the 440th-anniversary lecture to celebrate Prof. Busia’s legacy in Accra yesterday, Prof. Oquaye said Prof. Busia was not only a great politician but also a holistic person who left a lasting legacy for humanity.
He urged the younger generation to learn more about the values the politician and academic stood for to succeed in their various fields of endeavour. The lecture, attended by people from all walks of life, was on the theme: “Celebrating the legacy of Prof. K.A Busia”.
“Prof. Busia’s background should be an inspiration to the youth because although Royal blood flowed through his veins by virtue of his maternal ancestry, he was only one of many in that connection. He vivified what I have been sharing with young people wherever I have the opportunity: learn hard, be of good character and fear God and you can be successful in one way or another in life,” he said.
