A brilliant Ghanaian student, Ali Inusah, has emerged as the 2021 valedictorian during the 13th congregation of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA).
Inusah, who achieved a first-class degree in Accounting at UPSA, made history as the 2021 Overall Best Student of his graduating. He walked a rocky path to become valedictorian, according to a Facebook post by Citi FM/TV journalist, Umaru Sanda Amadu.
in his speech, he said:
‘Four years ago, I was driving my father to visit his brother at Katamanso near Ashaiman when a gentleman emerged from the bushes brandishing the WASSCE results of his junior brother. I screamed in excitement when I saw the As on the paper.”
His brother asked that I help. If I didn’t, he told me, his little brother would remain a herdsman slaving in the bushes for next to nothing. I discussed the boy with my bosses at Citi FM, Sammens and Bernard Avle. They were wowed and decided this boy must not be left to “rot” in the bush. ”Citi FM and UPSA offered him a joint scholarship to study Accounting.”
