The Kumasi Technical Institute (KTI) has held a grand durbar in Kumasi to celebrate the achievement of Master Sadat Adam at this year’s World Wood Day held in China.
The 21-year-old student made Ghana proud when he emerged as the only person from Africa who was ranked in the top best six at the competition.
Sadat was presented with a certificate by the Rector of KTI, Dr Joseph Abeiku Aggrey, before a packed audience.
World Wood Day is an annual competition organised for selected students from across the world. These students are picked after a selection exercise held under the auspices of the International Wood Culture Society.
This year’s competition had ‘Wood is Good’ as its theme to promote the use of wood, encourage tree planting and prove that wood is a sustainable material.
The carpentry student was among 71 competitors, including six from Africa, and emerged as one of the top entrants in the 20-team carpentry segment of the competition.
The first of five siblings from rural Lima Yire in Wa in the Upper West Region, Master Adam, who grew up at Aboabo in the Ashanti Region, did not allow the demise of his parents early in life to disrupt his desire to take carpentry and the use of wood for various designs to the highest stage.
He was the shining star among the African group of Morocco, Cameroun, Benin, and Kenya and the only African in the finals.
Dr Abeiku Aggrey expressed the hope that the student’s achievement would help revive the interest in carpentry at the school.
