It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of the late Rev. fr. Dr. Ekpaa Maalo, Cssp, the former head of our School of Business. Rev. fr. Dr. Maalo passed away in the early hours of Sunday 23rd April in Wa. He was a highly respected and valued member of our academic community, and his contributions to the growth and development of our School of Business will always be remembered.
We extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Rev. fr. Dr. Maalo during this difficult time. We recognize that his passing has left a great void in our community and we join you in mourning his loss.
In honor of his life and legacy, a burial Mass has been scheduled for Tuesday, May 17th at our west campus at Ejisu. The Mass will commence at 9:30 am and will be a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the betterment of our institution and its students.
We encourage all members of the school community to attend the Mass and to pay their respects to Rev. fr. Dr. Maalo. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will live on in the lives of those he touched and the countless students whose lives he impacted.
Once again, we extend our deepest sympathies to all those who knew and loved Rev. fr. Dr. Maalo. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
As an academic Community, we are thrilled to announce the upcoming International Conference on the theme “The Church and the Global Eradication of Ignorance and Poverty in Africa”. This conference promises to be an impactful and transformative gathering of scholars, activists, and religious leaders, all of whom are passionate about tackling the twin challenges of ignorance and poverty in Africa.
In today’s world, where economic and social inequality remains a significant challenge, the role of the Church in promoting education and economic empowerment cannot be overstated. Poverty and ignorance remain formidable barriers to progress, and they continue to limit the potential of individuals and communities across Africa. The Church, as a powerful and influential institution, has the potential to be a catalyst for change, mobilizing resources and galvanizing support for the eradication of poverty and the promotion of education.
The upcoming conference will provide a platform for experts from various fields to come together and share ideas on how best to tackle these challenges. It will be an opportunity for participants to learn from one another, share their experiences, and identify strategies that can be applied to address the specific needs of different communities across Africa.
The importance of this conference cannot be overstated. By bringing together religious leaders, scholars, activists, and policymakers, we can harness the collective wisdom and resources of the Church to promote education and economic empowerment across Africa. We encourage everyone interested in making a meaningful contribution to the eradication of poverty and the promotion of education to attend this conference and be part of the change we all want to see.

Venerable Fr. Francis Libermann
April 14, 1802 – February 2, 1852
Don’t jump to conclusions and don’t judge according to what you are used to in Europe. Forget about Europe, its customs, its ways of thinking; you have to make yourselves blacks with the blacks so as to form them in their own way and not according to the European model. For their perfection and sanctification, relate to them as slaves do to the customs and habits of their masters, so that gradually you will make them a people of God. This is what St. Paul refers to as making ourselves all things to all men so as to win them for Jesus Christ.
Libermann to the community of Dakar, November 1847. NDIX, p.330-331
