Professor Kwesi – Opoku Amankwa

Following the termination of his secondment from KNUST to GES by His Excellency Nana Addo, the former GES Director-General has taken some time to thank all the educational stakeholders for making his time at office successful.

His message posted on his official facebook page read that “Good morning Directors and Staff of GES , I believe most of you have sighted/read the letter from HE the President terminating my Secondment from KNUST to GES and asking me to go back to KNUST. Some of you may also be waking up to the news this morning.

I have and continue to receive your calls and numerous messages. I have not been able to pick your calls or reply to your messages due largely to the shear volumes.

What gladdens my heart is that the messages are not dirges but goodwills and prayers and very soothing and reassuring messages.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone of you for your dedication and the extremely good work relationship that existed between us.

I highly appreciate your unfathomable love to me. We worked as a team and together we’ve changed the face of not only pretertiary education but also GES.

You supported me in many ways to enhance my resumé to bring it to a distinguishing first class, world class CV. And I am highly grateful to you all.

I leave you with a verse from my favourite and guiding hymn: MBH 602 by Anna Laetitia Waring:

Father, I know that all my life is portioned out for me,
And the changes that are sure to come I do not fear to see;
But I ask Thee for a present mind intent on pleasing Thee.
