That was when he met with his thesis supervisor.


Emotional Day

The Vice President described the day as “happy and emotional day”.

According to the Vice President, Prof Khan is a fountain of knowledge and humility.


Coincidentally, the man Dr. Bawumia describes as a “true gem” was a student of Professor K.A. Busia at the Hague.


In a Facebook post, the Vice President said “We talked about old times and his new readings. He gave me a copy of his recently completed autobiography (A Journey of Ages).”

“Professor Khan left me with one piece of advice. He said at his age of 83, he realizes that the most important asset in one’s life is your health and if he had to do it over again he would spend more time on his health. Profound advice.” He added.
