Ali Inusah is a brilliant Ghanian herdsman turned Accounting guru who emerge as the 2021 Overall Best graduating student at the University of Professional Studies, Accra, Ghana (MrUPSA) with a first-class honour in Accounting. It was said that Ali Inusah was able to further his academic into the University level due to the assistance rendered to him by a journalism firm in Ghana. According to reports, the firm took it upon themselves to train Inusa after they saw how remarkable, extraordinary and great his WASSCE result was.

Ali Inusah's hope of attending the University got revived after his elder brother dashed out from the bush four years ago where he was rearing his cattle to approach Mr Umaru Sanda Amadi a Ghanian journalist who was travelling with his father. Reports have it that on meeting him, he presented his brother's WAEC result filled with distinctions(As) to the Journalist and pleaded that he helps his brother to attend University because without good education he and his brother will continue to wander in perpetual poverty and slavery.

Mr Umaru out of a passion to liberate humanity promised to help. He took the matter to the office where he works, and he informed his boss and fortunately, the company agreed to award a free scholarship to Ali Inusah to study Accounting at the University of Professionals, Accra, Ghana.

The story of the young boy should be a source of inspiration to Nigerians, especially Northern Nigeria. It is a known fact that Northern Nigeria has the lowest rate of educated people and the highest number of illiterates in the country, as young children are being introduced into cattle rearing with little or no education. Northern herdsmen should understand that being a herdsman is not an excuse for not having a formal education. Education is important in all spheres of life because, without it, we might continue to live in a mirage.e
