Association of Past Executive And Co-ordinators (APEC) in the Ashanti Region ,on Saturday, 27th November, 2021honoured the Energy Minister ,Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh for his outstanding performance in Leadership.
The Minister was honoured for exhibiting exceptional leadership qualities, leading to the successful implementation of Government’s flagship Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy ,TVET ,among other things .
The event was the maiden edition of SHANTIAPEC Excellence Award held at the great Hall, KNUST.
Dr.Mathew Opoku Prempeh was decorated with a Kente cloth, given trophy and a citation of honour.
Speaking after the presentation,Dr.Mathew Opoku Prempeh was delighted for the recognition given him by the organization.
According to him,APEC has done well by being a grooming stage to ensure quality leadership skills to up and coming guys.
He said his heart melted when the organization recognized a tutor from KTI and consequently gave him an award meaning that the organization is not thinking about their selfish interest but to recognize tutors who have made them who they are today.
He used the occasion to advise that as humans we need to lead an exemplary lives because we wouldn’t know what people will say about us when we are nomore.
‘I would like to advise we those over here to get a piece of paper and write your own obituary when you get home and know what people will say about you when you are nomore.”
Is it you live a life of hypocrisy or a life of decency,a life of integrity or a life of pull him down?,Is it a life of enviness or a life of full of support?.
He said , when you look at APEC as an association,they are not very rich but they have seen the need to extend a helping hand to fellow students for them also to be recognized some day to come that’s why he spent time to witness their maiden awards ceremony.
