Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang the running mate of the former president John Dramani Mahama has received a very heart touching message from her student for playing a very vital role in her successful carrier.

I received the following heart-warming email from one of my former students. I have her permission to share it with you so I am doing so now. Here it goes:

Dear Madam Jane,

Thank you so much for answering my call this morning.

I was so happy when I heard that you have been selected as the running mate for President John Mahama. I would like to congratulate you on this remarkable achievement of once again being the FIRST! We, your students from UCC are so proud of you.

I am currently the Assistant Representative for UNHCR in South Sudan and I was your student in the English Department. You also supervised my long essay, which was on how strong women could support their communities. It was based on a novel by Peter Abraham. I completed UCC in 1991.

Madam you have been an inspiration to me and so many of my mates from UCC, you taught us that hard work pays and we should never give up on our dreams, you instilled in us the will to always do our best and project our strengths at all times. I remember in one of our lectures you said, “women should not make themselves decorated flowerpots” These sayings have always echoed in my mind throughout my life. I always tell myself that I have to persist and put in all my efforts in order to achieve the best wherever I find myself and today this is where I find myself and I am still walking Madam. Thank you so much for what you have contributed to my life and career.

I told all my colleagues in the office about you ….

Warmest regards
