John Agyekum Kufuor Receives World Food Prize

John Agyekum Kufuor, President of Ghana from 2001-2008, received the World Food Prize at an award ceremony yesterday at the Borlaug International Symposium in Des Moines, Iowa.

Kufuor’s economic and educational policies led to significant positive changes in Ghana during the first decade of the new millennium. Ghana recently attained middle-income status and will likely achieve the first Millennium Development Goal of cutting poverty in half before the target year of 2015.
