...Professor John Evans Attah Mills: renowned lawyer and tax expert. I will save you from going to wikipedia by culling mini-bography about him below:
Mills was educated at Achimota Secondary School, where he completed the Advanced Level Certificate in 1963, and the University of Ghana, Legon, where he received a bachelor's degree and professional certificate in law in 1967.
While earning a PhD in Law from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, England, Mills was selected as a Fulbright scholar at Stanford Law School in the United States. Before then, Mills had earned an LLM at SOAS, University of London.
At the age of 27, he was awarded his PhD after successfully completing his doctoral thesis in the area of taxation and economic development. Mills' first formal teaching assignment was as a lecturer at the Faculty of Law at the University of Ghana, Legon. He spent close to twenty five years teaching at Legon and other institutions of higher learning, and rose in position from lecturer to senior lecturer to associate professor, serving on numerous boards and committees. During his almost thirty years of teaching and researching, Mills traveled as a visiting lecturer and professor at a number of educational institutions worldwide and presented research papers at symposiums and conferences throughout the world.
Adam, you're right! It does feel good to have a Professor as President. Important thing now is he makes sure he surrounds himself not with sycophants, but dedicated professionals!
Good weekend to all!
