The Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana (GRASAG) is a non-profit organization registered under the Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179). It was started in the year 1993 to promote, improve and coordinate postgraduate studies and the lives of the students pursuing these studies in all tertiary institutions in the country.
The association exists to also champion the course of member institutions in fighting for their rights and privileges in the laws of Ghana or the statutes establishing the respective universities of members.
A principled, meticulous, ambitious, self-motivated, astute, proactive young man, and a team player, who is poised to making an impact in the world in diversified capacities offered in various facets of human endeavor.
I believe in honesty, accountability and transparency.
My GRASAG objective is to advocate incessantly for members rights wherever they find themselves, by providing a focal point for policymakers and stakeholders to engage GRASAG productively.
I have been contributing my quota to nation building, over the years, through advocacy and student activism; having served with the All African Students Associations (AASU) as a member of the International Organizing Team for the 4th and 6th African Students and Youth Summit, as the International Relations Secretary for the Ghana Union of Professional Students (GUPS), and also serving on the bench of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS).
Aside these positions I served as the 1st Deputy Speaker of the UPSA-PH, served on the Judicial Boards of GUPS and the UPSA Students Representative Council. I have served as a member of the NUGS Elections Commission, and also served as a member of the GUPS Audit Board.
The experience gained so far in my exploits would be brought to bear on the GRASAG stage towards harnessing opportunities available for the graduate students in Ghana.
My educational life has been centered in Accra; had my primary and junior secondary education at the Association International School (I had the opportunity to serve as the 1st Deputy School Prefect), my senior secondary school education was at the Achimota ( also served as House Prefect and later became Boys Sanctions and Compound Prefect).
My tertiary education began with a Diploma (Accounting) at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), and continued there for my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. Currently having my postgraduate studies in UPSA, reading an MBA in Accounting and Finance.
I am an Accountant with the Judicial Service of Ghana, Head office, where we believe in the administration of Justice Without Barriers.
A staunch Christian who fellowships with the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Victory Congregation (Adenta- Frafraha).
The second, of four siblings, to Kwaku Osafo-Ampomah, and mother Augustina Sakyi, all of blessed memory. A proud indigene of Begoro, in the Fanteakwa District in the Eastern Region of Ghana, where I was born and bred.
One of the philosophies that guides my in life is that “my efficiency, without Gods sufficiency, is a deficiency in its totality” (2 Corinthians 3:5).
I am critical, team player, experienced, advocate and passionate about issues related to women and children’s right and most importantly prepared to put my knowledge, experience and wisdom on the table to enhance the credibility and efficiency of an organization.
