The President and Founder of Regent-Ghana, Rev. Prof. E. K. Larbi, last Friday, June 29, 2012, became an automatic member of the prestigious West Africa Nobles’ Forum (WANF) following his conferment with full membership of the Forum at an impressively attended ceremony held at the Capital View Hotel, Koforidua, in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
Watched with admiration by some members of his nucleus family, academic associates and well-wishers, Rev. Prof. Larbi stepped forward at the mention of his name, to be recognised for upholding “the virtues of honesty, integrity and accountability in both his private and public lives,” as well as for his selfless efforts in his chosen field.
The Patron of the 1000-member strong WANF is Miss Joyce Aryee, former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, while its Chairman of the Board of Trustees is Rev. Dr. Kofi Paul Fynn, Chancellor of Wisconsin International University College.
The West Africa Nobles Forum (WANF) is a non-governmental, non-religious and non-profit-making organisation headquartered in Accra, Ghana. It is a sub-regional think-tank fashioned after the Philosophical Society of America and is made up of statesmen, legal luminaries, politicians, research fellows, technocrats, medical giants, professionals and captains of industries.
The Chief of Defense Staff, Lt-Gen. Peter Augustine Blay, was one of the Fellows inducted into office.
A former recipient of the Noble’s Award is Mr. John Dramani Mahama, Vice President of the Republic of Ghana.
It would be recalled that Rev. Prof. Kingsley Larbi was on April 21, this year, conferred with the Best Entrepreneur Education 2011 Award by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Ghana in recognition of his contribution to education in the country.
