According to the NPP deputy scribe the NDC just do not like the late Busia and whatever is related to him that is why they are vehemently protesting the renaming of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR) after him.

"Is he deserving of the renaming I will ask? to me yes.. let me state reasons why he deserves it Kofi Busia was the first Black man tobe a DC and also lecture at the Sociology department at the university of Ghana.

He was also the first black man to lecture at a university in Holland.History will tell you that he was the first man to head an opposition party in Africa.

He is also the first person from Bono Ahafo to become a prime minister.. All these achievements make him more than deserving of the renaming.

The private legal practitioner ended up by saying that its only ignorant tribal bigots who will kick against such a move.

"They can continue to wallow in ignorance their unquenchable ignorance..People can continue on their unbridled tribal hatred."he concluded.
