Conferring the degrees, Mr Lucky Gbordzoe, on behalf of Professor Samuel Afriyie, Country Representative of the University said the awards were after exhaustive investigation made into the background of the awardees from a number of names presented to them.
He said degrees awarded by the university were recognised by the Ghana Accreditation Board to be comparable to those awarded by recognised universities.
He also said the university was working in association with the universities of Ghana, Legon and Cape Coast.
Robing them, Dr Norbert Ansah, President of the College of Doctors welcomed them to the group and hoped the honour will goad them on to do more for society.
Thanking the university on behalf of the awardees, Mr Seneadza said they were overwhelmed by the award since they least expected it.
He said it will serve as a motivation for others to give of their best in whatever endeavour they found themselves since somebody somewhere was watching them.
Mr Seneadza gave the assurance that they will put in more effort to justify the trust reposed in them.
