  1. Professor Ernest Aryeetey was committed to excellence from his days as research fellow at ISSER, and never looked back, left or right. During his tenure as VC he demonstrated valour and vision as well. He has indeed accomplished substantially and triumphed over huge obstacles in the local environment. He needs commendation.
