The Second Deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), Mrs Elsie Addo Awadzi has delivered a speech at the 75th anniversary launch of the University of Ghana on Thursday September 1.
In her speech, she recounted her experience when she was a student at the University of Ghana some 32 years ago.
“32 years ago, when I arrived on this great campus as a shy and confused F.U.E. student (as first year undergraduate students were then called), the sheer privilege of the opportunity was not lost on me.
“More than three decades after, I can proudly say that my University of Ghana experience (what I will call ‘the UG experience’) was transformational and has served me, my family, Ghana, and the world, well.
"I have no doubt that UG will grow from strength to strength as it harnesses technology for resilience and delivers inclusive and human-centered educational and training experiences." – Mrs. @ElsieAddoAwadzi, 2nd Deputy Governor, @thebankofghana#UGIS75 #IntegriProcedamus pic.twitter.com/30UTudo3bI

“This is the story of many others who have been blessed with a UG education.
“I am truly honoured and equally humbled to speak to you today for the launch of the 75th Anniversary celebration of this great institution.
“I believe that the year-long celebration leading to this important milestone in 2023 under the theme Nurturing Resilience: Adopting Technology, Embracing Humanism will provide the right setting to take stock, learn lessons, and look forward to the next 75 years. I will therefore focus my remarks today on the past, present, and future of our great university.”
