Graduates urged to take advantage of digital tools to win in the age of the entrepreneur



Nana Dwemoh Benneh CEO of the Universal Merchant Bank with the graduates and dignitaries at the 75th congregation ceremony of the College of Education at the University of Ghana 1

A leading Ghanaian banker, Nana Dwemoh Benneh, the Chief Executive Officer of the Universal Merchant Bank (UMB), has urged graduates of the University of Ghana to take advantage of the benefits of digital tools to establish themselves as entrepreneurs.

Nana Dwemoh Benneh made these comments at the 75th congregation ceremony of the College of Education where he was the guest speaker. The ceremony saw the graduation of 11,711 students drawn from the constituent schools of the college namely School of Continuing and Distance Education, School of Information and Communication Studies and the School of Education and Leadership.

The Provost of the College of Education Prof. Samuel Nii Ardey Codjoe in his opening remarks noted that the graduating class had students from over 50 other countries amongst the cohort, once more cementing the University of Ghana’s place as the premiere University in Ghana.

In her remarks read for her by the Pro Vice–Chancellor Prof. Felix A. Asante, the Vice – Chancellor of the University noted some key successes chalked by the University for the year under review. Key highlights here included the Vice–Chancellor’s Student Digitization Initiative to allow for synchronous and asynchronous virtual learning.  She also noted that the University of Ghana had taken pride of place in Ghana as the top ranked school in the Webometrics/ Alper Doger school rankings.

In her speech prior to confirming the conferment of degrees on the presented candidates, the chancellor of the University Mrs. Mary Chinery–Hesse, represented by Ms. Doris Kisiwa Ansah and Mrs. Yvette Adounvo Atekpe, members of the University Council congratulated management for continuing efforts to ensure that the university returns to full and normal operations post the Covid pandemic.

She also commended management for innovative efforts to resource the university and also to ensure best management practices including being the first university in Ghana to institute a gender policy statement.

Nana Dwemoh Benneh, the CEO of the Universal Merchant Bank in his speech reiterated his pride in being an alumnus  of the University, graduating some 23 years ago. He painted a vivid picture of a contrast between the world he graduated into and the world of today. He noted that the key differentiator was how much digital tools had transformed the world, especially the world of work.

He noted for instance that unlike in 1996, his year of graduation, new music albums could top the chart without a CD or a cassette being produced. He used this example to establish the point that the world we find ourselves in the age of the digital entrepreneur and admonished graduating students to follow the examples of other successful entrepreneurs in and out of Ghana and seek to establish their own enterprises. “Opportunities exist for the diligent who apply themselves to exploiting the digital world and creating different kinds of work relevant to the emerging society.”

The College of Education is made up of the following schools: School of Information and  Communication Studies, School of Education and Leadership and the School of Continuing and Distance Education and is one of the colleges of the University of Ghana. The university of Ghana was founded in 1948 as a university college of the Gold Coast. This year’s congregation marks the 75th congregation of the university.

Kasapreko, Group Chairman receive Presidential Honour at 2023 National Honours and Awards



Richard Adjei Managing Director of Kasapreko Company Limited receiving the awards from President Nana Akufo Addo 2

Kasapreko Company Limited and its Group Chairman, Dr. Kwabena Adjei, have been honoured by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the 2023 National Honours and Awards ceremony in Accra, Ghana, for their roles in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company – one of the largest indigenous beverage producers – was recognised for its contribution to changing its production line to manufacture hand sanitisers to aid in the fight against the global virus.

The Group Chairman was honoured for his role in helping establish the COVID-19 Private Sector Fund. The fund built the Ghana Infectious Disease Centre (GIDC), a 100-bed capacity facility, to improve the medical diagnostic and research capacity of Ghana with regard to infectious diseases. The hospital was built in a record time of 100 days since the country has no such facility and there was a need to control the infection rate of COVID-19.

Richard Adjei, Managing Director for Kasapreko, who received the honours on behalf of the company and the Group Chairman, expressed gratitude to the President for the recognition, saying that the company responded quickly to the country’s urgent need by stepping in as a local producer of sanitisers.

He further stated that the company converted some of its production facilities to produce hand sanitisers at an affordable rate or more or less break even to ensure that people get sanitisers at a cheaper cost and also make them more available across the nation to help prevent the Covid-19 virus.

“Kasapreko on our part as one of the biggest importers of alcohol and with alcohol being 99 percent of sanitiser production saw the need and decided to convert some of our lands to produce sanitisers at an affordable rate or more or less break even to make sure that people get sanitisers at and also make it more available across the nation in order to help prevent the COVID-19 virus,” Kasapreko’s Director said.

The gesture by Kasapreko helped make hand sanitisers readily available and cheaper to meet the demand for the product in the country, curbing the spread of the virus.

Kasapreko’s Managing Director added that the company donated GH¢2 million in cash, as well as other items to communities and other institutions, including Korle-Bu Hospital, Ridge Hospital, the Prisons Service, Ministries, Schools, and the community where they operate.

Kasapreko’s efforts, coupled with other protocols and measures instituted by the government and other stakeholders, greatly assisted in containing the coronavirus and earned Ghana commendations from the international community.

The president’s recognition adds to a long list of awards Kasapreko has received, particularly, in the last decade, including consistent appearances on the coveted Ghana Club 100 list.

“Again, I must say we are truly honoured by Mr. President’s gesture. We are also very humbled by the impact we were able to make during such a difficult time. We recognize that this recognition comes with great responsibility, and we are committed to using our company’s resources and expertise to continue playing an active role in the development of our nation.,” the Managing Director added.

To mark International Women’s Month, Women at Uber and Black at Uber teamed up with TechConnect to host an event on the role of technology and culture in promoting equity across the continent.

According to Marjorie Saint-Lot, Head of Uber Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, the event is intended to be a reminder to all African women and girls of the potential they have to become global leaders and trailblazers in the world of tech and business, or indeed whatever path they choose to follow.

“As a global organisation that prioritises inclusion and gender equity, Uber has long championed the cause of women around the world,” Saint-Lot points out, “not only because it is a moral imperative to create a more just and equitable society with opportunities for all, but also because promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment, and putting more women in leadership positions, is proven to make for more innovative, successful and sustainable businesses.

Jeminatu Alabi-isama, Head of TechConnect Africa states that “It’s our mission to build a highly engaged, innovative and interconnected global community. We are proud to work with Uber on this initiative to uplift and empower women across Africa and transform communities.”

The event attracted African female business role models who shared their experiences and insights, including the lessons they have learned in their respective journeys. The panellists included Marjorie Saint-Lot, Vanessa Bannerman of Christie Brown, Adoma Owusu of Visa and Femi Asante of Group Sebastien. The conversation was moderated by Nanama Botchwey, the founder of N.Dowuona & Company.


At the event, Uber also announced the official launch of #GigSister, a women earner empowerment initiative in Ghana, Kenya and South Africa. #GigSister is an influencer-led community group created to connect, empower and grow female drivers on the Uber platform across Africa. The initiative, which has already achieved success in parts of Europe and the UK, sees Uber teaming up with like-minded partners, including Google and L’Oreal, to uplift and empower women through mental health support, motivation and self-promotion, as well as self-defence training.

From a women-driver safety perspective, Uber launched ‘Women Preferred’ in South Africa which allows women and non-binary drivers to choose to only pick up women riders.

“We are excited about this opportunity to come together and celebrate the potential of women to be business leaders in Africa,” Saint-Lot says, “and in the process promoting gender equality, recognising the contributions of women in business creating a more level playing field for both genders in Africa and inspiring women and girls to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams and career ambitions.”
