She said: “Significantly, Komla did not believe in cutting corners or pandering to the agenda of any group of people or organization against his conscience. Also was his passion for excellence and obsession with the kind of discipline that demands rigorous verification of the fact in the search for the truth.”

The late Komla Dumor’s father and chairman of the Center, Professor Ernest Dumor challenged journalists to contribute to the development of the African continent.

According to him, his son “was conditioned by the experiences of all the great men and their philosophies he had read about. Komla was therefore not an abstraction.”

The authorities of AUCC indicated that Komla Dumor epitomized the core values on which the University was built hence the decision to honour him.

The Komla Dumor Center for Braodcast Journalism was established in memory of the late broadcaster who died in 2014.

He worked for BBC World News and was the main presenter for Focus on Africa.
