A Ghanaian man, Enoch Dzah, has successfully been inducted into the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAG) after overcoming challenges and passing his exams.
He officially became a member of the ICAG on Tuesday, January 14, 2023, and took to LinkedIn to recall his difficult journey.
''How I became a qualified chartered accountant in seven months after passing nine papers in two sittings while juggling my master's, pastoral work (ministry), my 8 am-5 pm work, and my personal life,'' he began.
Enoch Dzah's journey to becoming a chartered accountant
He recounted that his journey started with a call from his CFO in November 2021. ''The call made me think about taking the ICAG exams. Before then, I didn't entertain that thought anytime it came up,'' he said.

After making all the necessary inquiries from the ICAG office, he got to know that he would ''be exempted from the Level 1 and 1 paper in level 2''.
Determined to achieve his goal, Dzah then drew a plan to write two in April, three in August, and four papers in December 2022. ''On January 6, I started class with Elexxon at UG Accra City Campus,'' he recalled.
''I went with the intention to register for the two papers, then I had a sudden urge to register for all the five papers in level two, but I was discouraged by lots of people, so I registered for four papers.''
Enoch Dzah struggles to balance his studies with his work
Dzah recalled struggling to balance classes with his work. He sat for the four papers in April 2022 and passed all on the first attempt.
''I immediately registered for classes for the remaining four papers for financial reasons and had to depend on videos to study the other one.''
When his classes to become a chartered account began in May 2022, he had to balance his studies with master's coursework and thesis.
''I remember missing my master's lectures and asking my colleagues for assistance. I even wrote some exams in June 2022 for my master's. I missed some deadlines for my thesis presentation,'' he recounted.
Despite the challenges, Dzah wrote the exams for these five papers in August 2022 and passed on the first attempt. ''The journey was really tough,'' he said.
Enoch Dzah attributes his achievement to God
Speaking to YEN.com.gh about how he felt about the remarkable milestone, Dzah said:
I feel very elated. I'm glad God has made this possible for me because I believe it is part of the qualifications I need to get to where I want to get to.
I believe professionals with the right qualifications [and] experience can help our country become better,'' he told YEN.com.gh.
