According to Prof. Omane-Antwi, people who worked tirelessly to start and lift the institution from a Bible Center through to the University status deserve to be celebrated.
Among some of the names he mentioned were Apostle Michael Ntumy, under whose leadership as Chairman of The Church of Pentecost at the time that Pentecost Universirty College received accreditation, Aps.

He said Prof’s meritorious service to the University has earned him a special place in its history. Aps. Dr. Tsekpoe said ” at the beginning, Prof. Omane-Antwi mentioned individuals who are heroes of the University, but that list cannot end without himself. This is because he has given so much of his intellect to ensure that the University works.”
