The Founding Vice Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS), Professor Fred Newton Binka, has again called on the government to rename the institution after late President Professor John Evans Atta Mills.
He made the call at this year’s John Evans Atta Mills Memorial Lecture for the Volta and Oti regions held at the UHAS main campus at Sokode-Etoe, near Ho, last Thursday.
The theme was “The Man John Evan Atta Mills- Ten Years on.”
Prof. Binka, who made the keynote presentation, said the legacy of the late professor was so critical and important in today’s Ghana, and worldwide, as far as the virtues of integrity, honesty and trust of a leader were concerned.
He said the former President demonstrated competent leadership when it mattered most, and the moral courage to address serious challenges that undermined state organisations.
