We are delighted to celebrate the former chief Justice of Ghana, Georgina Wood who was recently awarded the 2017/2018 African Initiative for Governance (AIG)’s visiting fellow of practice at the Blavatnik school of government, University of Oxford.
The AIG fellowship is formed from the partnership between the Blavatnik school and AIG and known for its philandering activities in the provision of scholarships to talented WestAfricans, as well as opportunities to foster the development of future leaders.
The award is given each year to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the good of the people through unequaled leadership and service. It is however no surprise that former Chief justice Georgina wood was honoured with this award.
Georgina Wood was the first woman to be appointed Chief justice in Ghana, she retired in 2017 after great philandering works and service. Not long after, she was sworn into the council of state of Ghana, a council established for the sole purpose of rendering advice to the president in the performance of the country’s functions.
Following the award, she has been receiving congratulatory messages and commandments on her trail- blazing accomplishments as well as her inspirational contributions to the wealth of knowledge in the country. She has been ordained a source of inspiration to young people who aspire to do great things in public service.
Expressing her excitement, she said ‘I look forward to utilizing this platform to the deepening of democracy and good government in Africa.
