The Executive Director of the Busia Institute for Rural and Democratic Development (BIRDD), Anane Agyei, has underscored the need for Ghana to honour the memories of its heroes and heroines.
In his view, that is one of the surest ways to inspire succeeding generations to excellence in service for sustainable national development.
Mr Agyei made the point when he spoke to the Daily Graphic ahead of a symposium, the first of activities lined up to mark the 110th anniversary of the birth of Dr Kofi Abrefa Busia, Ghana’s Prime Minister during the Second Republic.
The Busia 110th Symposium slated for tomorrow, Tuesday, July 11, 2023, at the African Regent Hotel in Accra, will be held under the auspices of former President John Agyekum Kufuor. The symposium, which will take place at 4.30 p.m. on the day, is on the theme, ‘The Relevance of Busia’s Ideas to Our Contemporary Society’.
The panellists for the symposium are eminent people from academia, politics, industry and other spheres of life.
