Headmaster predicts ‘Santaclusian’ president for Ghana

By myjoyonline

The headmaster at Adisadel College in Cape Coast, Herbert Graham has predicted that an alumnus of the school would emerge as President of Ghana after the 2008 elections.

Although Mr Graham did not mention the name of that alumnus, The Chronicle newspaper which reported the prediction says it matches Alan Kyeremanteng, Trade and Industry Minister and PSI, who is an alumnus of the school and is vying for the NPP presidential slot in 2008 elections to lead the country.

He said the school had produced prominent people who were occupying very important positions in Ghana and outside adding that two alumni recently occupied top positions in two arms of government citing the Speaker of Parliament, Hon. Ebenezer Sekyi Hughes and the late Chief Justice George Kingsley Acquah.

He was addressing the 97th speech and prize giving day ceremony of the school at the school's assembly hall recently. Alumni of the College are called Santaclausians.

According to the paper, his analysis may be related to the fact that the ex-President Jerry John Rawlings attended Achimota while the incumbent President attended Prempeh College in Kumasi and that it was time for ADISCO to ascend to the throne.

He said the school achieved 65 % passes in 2004 which shot up 78% in 2005 and astronomically increased to 93% in 2006 and expressed the hope of achieving 100% this year.

The IGP, Patrick Acheampong who belongs to the 1967- year group of ADISCO appealed to the students to eschew vandalism and hooliganism and strive hard to achieve academic excellence.

He urged them to be of good behaviour so as to become responsible leaders in the future.

The school honoured the IGP for his hard work and dedication to the country.

Deserving students, teachers and non teaching staff were rewarded for their dedication to work.
