Addressing some 500 graduating students, former President Kufour encouraged them to join the global fight for good.
“The world you are about to enter is vastly different than the world your parents entered into when they came into adulthood,” Kufuor said. “Mankind has at last come to realize the vision of a global village,” he said. His visit to DSU marked the first time a former head of state had addressed the university, officials there said. In addition to giving the commencement address, he also received an honorary doctorate from DSU, and he hosted a town hall session later that evening.
