Certificates alone not enough for personal development – Prof. Awoonor

Professor Kofi Awoonor, Chairman of the Council of State has asked the youth not to pride themselves in academic certificates without imbibing the qualities of discipline and courtesy.

He said no matter the number of degrees one collects, or the resource available to an individual, without discipline that fellow is bound to fail.

Prof Awoonor was addressing a durbar of the chiefs and people of Ave-Avenor area to honour Mr Doe Adjaho, First Deputy Speaker of Parliament and Member of Parliament for the area at Akatsi at the weekend.

The durbar dubbed: “Honour Thy Heroes,” was organised by the chiefs to honour Mr Adjaho’s successful personal life pursuits and contribution to development in the area.

Present at the ceremony were Mrs Joyce Banford-Addo, Speaker of Parliament, Togbe Sri III, Awomefia of Anlo, Mr Cletus Avoka, Majority Leader, Mr Joe Gidisu, Minister of Roads and Highways, Mr Kofi Humado, Minister of Youth and Sports and Mr Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, Akatsi District Chief Executive among others.

Mr Adjaho expressed gratitude for the honour done him and appealed for other sons and daughters of the area to be similarly honoured.
