Prof. Kwara Nantomah, a senior lecturer at the C.K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Science, is the first Ghanaian to hold the title of full professor of pure mathematics.
The academic’s recent accomplishment makes him the youngest Ghanaian to hold the title of full professor of mathematics.
In a Facebook post responding to his promotion that GhanaWeb saw, he thanked his role models and dedicated his success to everyone who has ever taught him.
“Glory be to God! I have been promoted to the rank of Full Professor of Mathematics. I am told that, this makes me the First Full Professor of Pure Mathematics in Ghana, and the Youngest Full Professor of Mathematics in Ghana.” He posted.
“Sir Isaac Newton once said ‘If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants’. I want to thank all the giants whose shoulders I stood to obtain this feat.
“It would not have been possible without you. May God richly bless you all. I dedicate this achievement to all my teachers (from Primary up to the University). Shalom!,” he wrote.
