Korku Amenyo Adablah, an auditor has been adjudged the best performing student in Ghana in Financial Management in the June 2017 Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) Examination.

He will be rewarded by ACCA, at an awards ceremony slated for Saturday, June 28, 2018 at the Accra International Conference Centre, in Accra, and also told his global position in financial management in the June 2017 examination during the event.

Mr Adablah, a 28-year old graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), currently an Audit Associate with GBQ Chartered Accountants, an auditing firm in Kwabenya in Accra, is in his final stage of his ACCA course.

In an interview with the Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday, Mr Adablah, who holds a first degree in Economics from KNUST, said “he felt excited” when he received an email from ACCA that he had been adjudged the best student in Financial Management in the June 2017 ACCA examination.

“I’m excited and I feel encouraged to complete the ACCA successfully and pursue further studies,” he said.

Mr Adablah said his dream “is to become a chartered accountant” and he started the ACCA course in 2015 after the completing of his National Service in 2014.

“I wanted to enter a challenging profession, and although I pursued Economics at the tertiary level and had little stint with Accounting, I decided to pursue the ACCA programme to become a chartered accountant,” he said.

“Along the ACCA course, I have obtained a diploma in Accounting,” Mr Adablah said.

The Auditor disclosed that he  had so far completed 10 of the 13 papers for the ACCA course, saying he would complete the remaining papers in Advanced Audit Assurance, Strategic Business Leadership and Advanced Financial Management by the end of December this year.

The 10 papers Mr Adablah has completed successfully in the ACCA programme are Taxation (UK), Audit and Assurance, Financial Management, Corporate Law, and Performance Management.

The rest are Management Accounting, Financial Accounting, Accountant in Business, Strategic Business Reporting and Financial Reporting.

Quizzed what accounted for his sterling performance in financial management, Mr Adablah said “it’s determination, discipline and hard work”.

“I also study seriously and consulted my senior colleagues who have written the same paper for their advice,” Mr Adablah said.
