Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has added another award to the several others he has received for his exemplary leadership skills.

This time around, the Ukrainian Ministry of Education, Science, Youth and Sports and that country’s State Centre of International Education that has conferred on him the ‘Ukrainian Honorary National Award’.

The award comes days after he received the prize money for the coveted World Food Prize which he received together with his Brazilian counterpart, Luiz Lula da Silva, in recognition of exemplary leadership qualities which led to increased food production and the reduction of poverty in their respective countries.

A letter signed by Viacheslav Tymokhin, a Director at the Ukrainian Ministry that accompanied the latest award presented to Mr Kufuor at his private residence, said it was “in recognition of his role in nation building, his interest in providing education, sports, healthcare and democracy to the youth in Ghana.”

The ministry and for that matter the government of that country, assured the former president of the highest consideration.

A representative of the Ukrainian government (Consul Diplomat), Victoria Olevrch, who presented the award to Mr Kufuor on behalf of the Ministry and the International Student Care Organisation (ISCO-Ghana), congratulated him for the achievement.

On his part, Mr Kufuor expressed profound gratitude to the government and people of Ukraine for the honour bestowed on him, promising to champion the cause of humanity till the end of time.

He dedicated the award to the people of Ghana for giving him an opportunity to serve them as president for two consecutive four-year terms to improve the lives of his countrymen.

The Ukrainian government has recognized the contribution of Rev. Gabriel Ansah of Nasem University, a religious programme on Adom FM, to nation-building, and has therefore conferred on him the award of ‘HIS EXCELLENCY’.

The award which will be presented later this year in Ghana when a team from the Ukrainian Ministry of Education, Science, Youth and Sports visit the country is aimed at appreciating and recognizing the contribution of specific African leaders who have made significant difference in their respective countries.

By using the media to provide education, motivation, inspiration and serving as a role model for the youth, Rev. Ansah has risen above his peers leading to his recognition of that state’s National Award.

Rev. Ansah is in the same category as the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, President Mills, former President Kufuor, former U.N Secretary General Kofi Annan ,Prof. Marian Ewurama Addy and Dr. Mensah Otabil.

Rev. Ansah has been hosting Nasem University on Adom 106.3 Fm for more than a decade, creating an avenue for bible teaching and learning. Rev Ansah prayed to officially open Adom FM in 1999 and became a programme host there after a stint with Joy FM where he shocked many with his prophesy of the demise of Sadam Hussein.

Over the years, he has inspired hopes of several people in a world filled with trouble. Through his immense contributions, the station has grown to become arguably the number one radio station in Ghana, influencing the lives of many.

Rev. Ansah told Adom News that though excited about the award, he believes more work needs to be done to spread the word about the ‘last days’ of this world.

He has 5 books to his credit; including the popular ‘End Time’ series. From a troubled background, where his father shot himself whiles he was just 13, Rev. Ansah was attracted into evangelism at a younger age. From the Kaneshie market where he started preaching, he has grown into a fine young man, married with two children.
