For The Records, Franklin Cudjoe's Academic And Professional Integrity Is Intact

For The Records, Franklin Cudjoe's Academic And Professional Integrity Is Intact

Ladies and Gentlemen, I had really not been interested in responding to persons of dubious character and intent in the current NDC government of Ghana who are making a needless meal of my bio data. Out of respect for all of you who believe in Transparency and Accountability, I am breaking protocol as recommended by my PR handlers to set the records straight. Meanwhile our lawyers are almost done with the legal work awaiting advice on a possible libel suit.

So, here we are, my proof for the 4 damned lies told about me.

1. Part-Time PhD Studies, Buckingham University.

Initial Assessment of Franklin Cudjoe for Part -Time PhD studies- Circa late 2008

“I am pleased to recommend Mr Franklin Cudjoe for a course of supervision leading in principle to the degree of D.Phil. I had the pleasure of being at an academic conference in Ireland a year and a half ago, on the writings of Lord Macaulay, where Mr Cudjoe acquitted himself very ably in some formidable company. He wants to write about the possibility of voluntary institutions, financed by government subscription or private charitable donation, helping Ghana to break out of the circle of statist apathy and corruption which afflicts most African societies. Franklin’s own organisation has already made promising advances in this regard. My co-supervisor would be Dr Conolly. We are confidently expecting a most impressive thesis.” By-Principal Supervisor- Professor D. O’Keeffe (currently ill)

4. Double Recipient- Templeton Freedom Award Grant as reported in the Washington Times

The Washington Times - Thursday, June 22, 2006

“Ghana has twice the per capita output of poorer West African countries, but it still relies heavily on outside sources for financial assistance. Ghanaians like Franklin Cudjoe want to change that. This is where the Atlas Economic Research Foundation steps in. To help Mr. Cudjoe’s outreach, the foundation this year awarded Imani $10,000 in a general grant, the Templeton Freedom Award Grant.”
