The Civilian Institute of Democratic Administration (CIDA) has conferred the Fellowship of the Civilian Institute for Democratic Administration (FCIDA) on the Vice Chancellor, Prof J. S. Y. Kuma. A letter from CIDA Headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, received by Prof Kuma in part stated that: “Every organization in a civilian society requires administration. The effective and proficient management of people at work and other available resources is the goal of every good organization. Inevitably, young democracies like Nigeria, Ghana and other West African countries need professionals in administration. Based on your outstanding performance in office, you have been selected by the Council of our Institute as a potentially qualified candidate for the award of fellowship of the Civilian Institute of Democratic Administration, FCIDA”. The event occurred during the CIDA International Leadership and Fellowship Awards Summit and Investiture Ceremony of the Institute held in collaboration with CIDA-Ghana at Hotel Marjorie Y, in Tema on Saturday 26th March 2016. CIDA stands for the promotion and advancement of effective and efficient civilian administration in countries with democratic structures.
