“President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in him I am well pleased.” He said
The monarch also described the ceremony as a rare one. “…this is the fourth time I am presiding over such an event as Chancellor of this noble university. You all agree with me that today’s ceremony is historic in a number of respects. It is historic by the way we are all dressed in nose masks and face shields, it is historic by the limited number of people seated in this auditorium due to social distancing and the other restrictions and protocols resulting from the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic which has compelled the whole world and modify the new way of doing things. To borrow the words of the President, we are not in ordinary times”.
