The Founder’s Day holds on November 30.
The American University of Nigeria, AUN, will welcome a Ugandan parliamentarian and former Vice President, Gilbert Bukenya, as the keynote speaker at this year’s Founder’s Day ceremony on November 30.
According to a statement by the school, Mr. Bukenya trained as a medical doctor and has dedicated his life to the health and well being of people all over the world.
He has taught and practised medicine in Asia and Africa, and serves as an adjunct faculty member of two distinguished universities in America—Case Western Reserve University and Tulane University. He is also a consultant for the World Health Organization, WHO, and UNICEF.
The school also noted that Mr. Bukenya was deeply involved in a number of Poverty Eradication Programs in his country and an important figure in the fight against AIDS in Uganda where he has brought his background in public health to the aid of his country.
The AUN President, Margee Ensign, in announcing Mr. Bukenya’s visit to the campus, praised his superb and innovative record in African development.
“We are so honored at AUN to have Dr. Bukenya as our Founder’s Day speaker. He is not only a very accomplished academic, but also a public health expert, and a leading politician on the continent. We look forward to his speech and participation in both Founder’s Day and Yola Peace Day,” she said.
Mr. Bukenya serves on the Board of Trustees of the American University of Nigeria.
