The Global Center for Transformational Leadership (GCTL) at the weekend honoured six individuals with the Global Leadership Awards and also conferred on them Honorary Doctor of Letters.
The Awardees included Ms Gifty Dansoa Anti, of GTV (Media); Mr Joseph Kobina Essibu, of Ideal College (Education); Mr Wisdom Kpehor, of Good Shepherd School (Education), Mrs Akua Sarpong Ayisa, of Unique Floral (Hospitality); Mr Gabriel Canaco, Lecturer GIMPA (ICT) and Mrs Patience Abolo Agbaza, Nigerian High Commission (Women Activism).
The award is aimed at recognizing the contributions of these individuals to the leadership of the country and encouraging others to follow their exemplary leadership.
Addressing the ceremony in Accra, Most Reverend Godwin Davids, Chairman of the Center, commended the awardees for distinguishing themselves in their various fields of endeavors with their leadership qualities.
He said this year, the award for excellence in Constitutional and Democratic Governance went to the Nigerian government.
He said, as the award winners were “accomplished individuals, there was the need to do more for themselves, their families and the society.”
Rev Davids said the Centre is an NGO and not tied to any political, religious, social or economic movement, entity or organization.
He noted the centre was independent, with the sole purpose of promoting effective and responsible leadership in all fields of endeavor in Africa and beyond.
Dr Emmanuel Amevor, Managing Director of Gentrac Investments Limited, who was the guest speaker, said the African continent could only change their plight when they change the greed among themselves.
He said the best transformation that could be meaningful to the African continent was to bring peace to the citizenry.
Dr Gifty Dansoa Anti, expressed gratitude to the organisers, saying that “the award will be worthless if we do not impact on more lives for national development.”
