A Ghanaian university don, Dr H.K. Menokpor, a Senior Lecturer in Community Medicine at the Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, Nigeria, has won two international awards.
He won the International Professional of the Year 2005 in Community Medicine and also adjudged one of the 2,000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century.
The award was made available to only a few illustrious individuals, whose achievements and leadership stand out in the international community as decreed by the Research and Advisory Board of IBC.
A letter from the International Biographical Centre (IBC), Cambridge, England in the United Kingdom, signed by its Director-General, Nicholas S. Law, and addressed to Dr Menokpor stated, “after deliberations, your acceptance by the IBC Board was unanimous — your position as a leading executive guaranteed your success.
“My colleagues and I at the International Biographical Centre are delighted to confirm your nomination as an International Professional of the Year 2005,” the letter said.
The letter explained that the IBC honoured people, who were well-regarded in the local, national and international sphere.
On the 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century, another letter signed by the Director-General of IBC explained that the inclusion in the 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century, was based on merit alone.
The letter said Dr Menokpor's name would be included in the prestigious publication, which would be made available in libraries, research institutions and academics world-wide.
