President Akufo-Addo Receives Honorary Doctorate Degree From Sorbonne University

Sorbonne University, in Paris, France, one of the first universities established in Europe, has just conferred an Honorary Doctorate Degree on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He becomes the 5th African in history to receive such an award from the prestigious Sorbonne University, following in the footsteps of notable Africans such as Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan and Léopold Sédar Senghor.

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 being an Honorary Doctor of Law Degree conferred on him in May 2016, from the celebrated Fort Hare University of South Africa; the second, in December 2017, being an honourary doctor of humane letters degree from the University of Liberia; and the third, in May 2021, from the University of Cape Coast.
