President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was today, Monday, October 10, 2022, conferred with the Award of Doctor Honoris Causa from Sorbonne University in Paris, France.

Ghanaians in France could not hold their joy as the president received the Doctor Honoris Causa distinction today in a prestigious amphitheatre in Paris.

Sorbonne University conferred the award on President Akufo-Addo, in recognition of his commitment to entrenching the values of democracy in Ghana, fostering peace within the West African Region, guaranteeing access to a minimum of senior high school education for all of Ghana's children through the implementation of the Free SHS policy.

A video shared by the former French ambassador to Ghana, Anne Sophie Avé, showed Ghanaians living in France serenading the president amid loud applause.

“Yiee Nana Addo, Yiee Nana Addo, yieee ayeee,” they sang in the Twi dialect.

The video by the former ambassador was captioned: "Ghanaians celebrate President @NAkufoAddo who received Doctor Honoris Causa distinction today in prestigious amphitheatre in La Sorbonne".

This will be the fourth Honorary Doctorate Degree to be conferred on President Akufo-Addo. In May 2016, the president was conferred with the Honorary Doctor of Law Degree by the Fort Hare University of South Africa.

He received his second Honorary Doctor from the University of Liberia where he was conferred with a Doctor of Humane Letters Degree. The third, in May 2021, from the University of Cape Coast.
