The Executive Director of Advertising Association of Ghana (AAG), Francis Dadzie has been honored by the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) in recognition of his relentless efforts towards institutional development.
At the school’s 11th Congregation held over the weekend, Mr. Dazie was presented with a citation in that regard.
“You have taken very business leadership roles in television, hospitality for several decades before cabinet,” it read.
“For your selfless contribution and indefatigable support for institutional development, the Governing Council and management of the University of Professional Studies, Accra say ‘ayekoo’. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and may God richly bless you.”
With the support of the Business Sector Advocacy Challenge (BUSAC) Fund, Mr Dadzie as Director of AAG has among other things, been pushing for the Advertising Bill.
He has argued that the bill, when passed into law would guard consumers against making wrong decisions based on the adverts they consumed as it addresses issues such as consumer protection from deceptive advertising, gender stereotyping and exploitation of children in advertisements.
