Host of Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana show, Paul Adom-Otchere has opined that most of the finest doctors in Ghana are old students of his alma mater, the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School.
According to him, at least one out of three doctors the country has produced is an Alumni of the Presbterian Boys SHS.
“Typically, when you hear of a medical doctor in Ghana, I think one out of three would have attended Presec because of the school’s proficiency in science. A lot of the doctors around here are Presec Old Boys,” he boasted.
He named Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku Constituency, Dr Oko Boye, among others, as one of the best doctors in the country whose career was influenced by the school.
