He added, “We believe this (Honorary Fellowship -Doctor of Science) will encourage you to go the extra mile to serve your community in particular and your country as a whole in your field of endeavour.”
The K. Badu Agrochemicals CEO in his response said “I am honoured for his recognition, it clearly tells me people and institutions monitor individuals and companies works. Indeed, this will urge us all and the company to go the extra mile in our quest to strive for excellence not only in Ghana but beyond our shores. We are indeed grateful and highly honoured.
“I couldn’t have achieved this feat without great contributions and support from great friends like Dr Osei Kwame Despite, Dr Ofori Sarpong, my beautiful and hardworking wife and of course Rectitude International Mission for the recommendation. I am indeed grateful .”
