According to the Minister, discipline serves as a fundamental principle for achieving success and personal growth.

“I stand before you as a Minister today not by chance, but first, due to the mercies of the Almighty, and also due to the resilience and self-discipline I dedicated to my studies when I was a student like you. Therefore, I would like everyone to draw inspiration from my personal experience to encourage you as you strive to achieve excellence."- Asenso-Boakye added

Again, he urges students to prioritize Allah in all their endeavours and abide by the teachings to receive his blessings and guidance in their lives.
