A statement announcing the award signed by Professor Susan Lea, Vice-Chancellor of the University, said the award was in recognition of the former President’s “many years of great humanitarian service to the cause of Freedom in Ghana and around the world.”

The award will be conferred on Kufuor at the ‘Wilberforce World Freedom Summit’ on September 28 at Hull’s City Centre during which the former President will deliver a speech on: “Africa’s Freedom Journey.”

The award is the initiative of the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation at the University of Hull.

John Kufuor was the Special Guest of Honour at the formal launch of the Institute ten years ago.
