The Dignity of Vision
By Rev P E Adotey Addo (Bleoo 54)
At Cornell University, Ithaca New York

To Ghana our hearts and souls belong, our dreams of old and new. Your sacred grounds receiving our libations as you did our mothers and fathers. Hopes never faltering while heeding the wisdom of the ancients. The sacred drums will beat as we feed from our mothers’ breasts.

While our fathers nurture our visions old and new against all odds. With perseverance, trust, honesty, keen foresight and compassion We pledge our commitment to a prosperous and brighter future. So watch over our tomorrows until you claim us back again Lest we forget, lest we perish.





Who Am I
By Nikoi Kotey ( formerly Nii Sowa Antemu Kome) Bleoo 62

Who Am I?
At the dawn of Ghana’s independence in 1957 I belonged to the elite eight in the country
Who Am I?
Of this elite eight, two were located in the Ashanti Region, the remaining six were in the Colony
Who Am I?
Three, one and two of us were located respectively in the present day Central, Eastern and Greater Accra Regions.
Who Am I?
Of this eight two were named after tribal chiefs while another was named after ancient Roman Catholic Saint of Hippo.
Who Am I?
Of the eight of us, only one of us owed its existence through the initiative of the British Colonial Administration.
Six of us were the wards and minions of the four dominant Christian denomination.
I was the only ONE of the eight which emerged from the initiative, foresight, dogged and an unquenchable determination of a tribal group.
Who Am I?
We were collectively characterized as ‘assisted’. Accra Hearts of Oak preceded me thirty years.
Who Am I?
Like a bubbling fountain generations of distinguished and not-so-distinguished Ghanaians (mainly sons)
have filled their academic thirst in my halls. Among these were Lt-General J. A. Ankrah, Ako Adjei, Justice Apaloo, Justice Azu Crabber, Justice Annan and Ohene Djan.
Who Am I?
Though my motto is Esse Quam Videri, Luctor et Emergo could equally and aptly be my mottoes for like Holland I struggled in other to emerge.
Who Am I?
I am Accra Academy, fashionably called Accra Aca. I am 75 years old today
B-L-E-O-O-O-O is my tribal nick name
Happy birthday to you my Alma Mater.
