Former Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba Lucas has challenged graduates from the University for Development Studies (UDS) not to confine the application of their knowledge only to Ghana, but share their wealth of knowledge with other African countries.
He said the exchange and cross-fertilization of knowledge in Africa is an important aspect of the integration agenda of the continent towards development.
The Ex-Namibian President Pohamba Lucas in an acceptance speech immediately he was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate Degree by the UDS after delivering a three-day lecture at the African Leadership Lecture, acknowledged Ghana’s contribution to the development of Namibia before and after independence of the country.
The Africa Leadership Lectures is a platform to subject the issues of leadership and development in Africa to the required critical thought.
It also creates a forum to inspire positive and innovative leadership initiatives as well as stimulate and initiate a platform for an action on constructive leadership in Ghana and Africa.
Hifikepunye Pohamba Lucas used the opportunity, to congratulate authorities of UDS for establishing such innovative tradition of Africa Leadership Lecture series and encouraged them to continue with such exemplary tradition which will enable opinion leaders such as former heads and government, business academia and civil society to share their experiences for the benefit of the institution and the continent.
