President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo attended the 109th anniversary of Adisadel College held in Cape Coast, as a special guest of honour.

While delivering his speech, he praised the school for the different breeds of people it produced - from legends to ministers of state and some known for notoriety.

“They say it takes all sorts,” Akufo-Addo said.

One of such who fell in the category of notoriety was Nana Appiah Mensah, the estranged CEO of gold dealing firm Menzgold.

“I love music and it is great to know that Adisadel produced A. K. Amponsah popularly known as Agya Koo Nimo the classical exponent of traditional music and the popular Hiplife musician, the late Terry Bonchaka.”

He continued, “Chairperson, I’ve also been made aware that Nana Appiah Mensah a.k.a NAM1 of Menzgold fame for notoriety depending on your viewpoint is a graduate of Adisco.”

This attracted a loud uproar alongside laughter and applause from both old and current students of the school for well over 20 seconds.

Meanwhile, President Nana Akufo-Addo has been inducted into the Alumni Association of one of Ghana’s oldest second cycle institution, Adisadel College by the national executive committee of the school’s Alumni Association.

The induction was to make the President an honorary old student of the school.
