Dr Charles Marcus who conferred the award said the institute was proud of the achievements and the leadership qualities of Dr Gaisie which had culminated in the transformation of the Ghana National Fire Service.
A citation presented to Dr Gaisie read: “For outstanding contribution to the development of the African continent in the area of Quality Leadership in Fire Safety, Fire Fighting Technology and Prevention Techniques.”
The African International Award (AIA) is conferred on African personalities who excel in their various fields of endeavour, and for their contribution to engender positive change to society.
