From taking care of cattle to graduating with first-class; the inspiring story of brilliant Ali Inusah » Nsemkeka

Ali Inusah’s story is an inspiring one that is hinged on a bit of determination, luck and serendipity. From taking care of cattle in the bush to graduating as a Valedictorian, Ali has proven how brilliant he is.

The story started when he was chanced upon by a Citi FM journalist Umaru Sanda Amadu after completion of High School where he had come out with distinction but no hope of making it to the next level.

Being a former cowboy himself who had risen from the doldrums of poverty to the echelons of recognition through the benevolence of benefactors, Umaru Sanda Amadu decided to lend a helping hand to Ali Inusah by getting him into the University of Professional Studies at the time when admissions were over.

Ali Inusah proved his mettle and after four years at the university, he graduated as one of the 15 first-class students of the Accounting School and has been inducted as valedictorian. Ali Inusahs’s personal resolve to make use of the opportunity and the confidence reposed in him were the motivation behind his brilliant results.

Umaru Sanda Amadu, in a tweet, narrated how he met Ali, and how the journey to academic excellence began for him.

Today is one of my proudest days in life. 4 years ago, I was driving my father to visit his brother at Katamansu 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”.

Citi FM and UPSA offered him a joint scholarship to study Accounting. Today, Ali Inusah did not only graduate with First Class, but also delivered a speech as the Valedictorian of the graduating class. His speech made me tear up and today, I am very happy and thankful to God.
