The President and Founder of Regent-Ghana, Rev Prof E. K. Larbi, has been nominated for the conferment of the prestigious Nobles International Award presented annually to prominent West Africans whose selfless efforts in their chosen fields of endeavour have earned them a reputation beyond the shores of their respective countries.
A letter notifying the nominee of the award, signed by Dee Otibu-Asare (PhD), Executive Secretary/Co-ordinator of the West Africa Nobles Forum, states, in part, “Apart from your achievements, it is on record that you have also upheld the virtues of honesty, integrity and accountability in your private and public life, to the admiration of your contemporaries, countrymen and women, hence your nomination.”
The conferment of the award comes on at a Dinner Dance/Award ceremony to be held at Capital View Hotel, Koforidua, in the Eastern Region of Ghana, on Friday, June 29, 2012. The occasion will be addressed by the Chief Executive Officer of Holy Trinity Medical Center, Accra, Dr. Felix Kwaku Anyah, who will speak on ‘Lifestyle Diseases; Causes and Remedies.’ The Guest of Honour will be the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Mr. John Dramani Mahama, a former recipient of the noble’s award.
The programme is being organised in conjunction with West Africa International Magazine.
