President Akufo-Addo has announced that the University of Development Studies (UDS) will be named after former president JJ Rawlings despite the late military leader’s opposition to the idea when he was alive.

According to the President, the family of Mr Rawlings has consented to the idea.

The late President rejected the offer when it was first made by President Akufo-Addo in respect of his long-standing principle not to have a state monument named after him.

However, following his death, the President said he is convinced the university, which former president Rawlings personally provided seed money for, needs to be named after him.
