President Akufo-Addo awards 72 deserving students for the year 2021 and 2022.
President Akufo-Addo addressed attendees of the 2023 President’s Independence Day Awards held in Accra ahead of Ghana’s 66th independence anniversary celebration.
He acknowledged that while Ghana has made positive strides in development, there is still a long way to go. He urged Ghanaians to eschew all forms of self-centeredness and divisiveness for the sake of the collective development of the nation.
The ceremony saw the President presenting awards to 36 deserving students for the year 2021 and 36 students for the year 2022, bringing the total to 72.
The President’s Independence Day Awards, since its inception in 1993, annually rewards young, brilliant students (male and female) between the ages of 14 and 19 from all the regions of Ghana, based on their exceptional academic performances in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
The objectives are essentially to recognise and reward academic excellence and to promote and encourage students with additional educational needs.
