President Akufo-Addo has charged students in Ghana to hold on to a strong moral character as they climb up the educational ladder, urging them not to allow their current successes to get into their heads.

Speaking to students at the 2022 “President’s Independence Day Awards” under the theme: “Working together bouncing back better”, Akufo-Addo called on the students of the nation not to lose sight of the need to work hard to ensure that they rise up to the highest academic heights.

“I urge you not to allow your current successes to get to your head because this is only the beginning. Continue to work hard in order to maintain your standards,” Akufo-Addo said.

“Know that you can go as far as you want by remaining diligent, hardworking and by holding to a strong moral compass. Honesty and integrity are important values in any worthwhile existence.” he added.

2022 awards

Over all, 36 students who came up tops in the 2021 Basic Certificate Examination (BECE), drawn from all 16 regions in the country, received the 2022 “President’s Independence Day Award”.

They will all receive tablets each and a year’s supply of Nestle Ghana Limited products (Milo, among others).


The President’s Independence Day Awards, since its inception in 1993, continues to provide scholarships each year to young brilliant students between the ages of 14 and 19 from all the regions of Ghana.
