Information available suggests he was also a former president of the school’s medical association.
Sharing his experiences after the ceremony which saw a total of 238 graduates receive honours, he indicated that he adopted strict time management strategies to achieve his dream.
Sackitey added that the passion and zeal urged him on even in times when he wished to compromise.
Per a report by graphic.com.gh, he added that he has always wanted to be a doctor since childhood and the fact that he has achieved his dream excites him so much.
“Many people argue that the basic sciences are only full of extraneous details and complex pathways. I beg to differ. Anatomy taught me that there is structure to everything. Biochemistry taught me that it is the little things that matter. Pathology taught me that anything can go wrong and Pharmacology also taught me that there is always a fix to each problem, if you think hard enough,” he added.
