During his days at UCC, Prophet Albert Asihene -Arjarquah studied chemistry and graduated in the year 2005.
He, however, responded to the Divine calling and went into full-time ministry after his university education. Prophet Arjarquah has since been ministering the prophetic messages in Ghana and abroad.
His ministry, the Prophet Albert Asihene-Arjarquah Ministries (PAAAM), continues to push the frontiers of accurate prophecies and redemption, alongside the salvation of Christ.
As Man of God, he also uses the ministry to embark on philanthropic activities with special focus on prison inmates, as well as educational support for brilliant but needy students.

“During our 60th anniversary, we decided to award prominent people who have gone through the University of Cape Coast and are doing marvelous things in different fields. So, we awarded people in Academia, Politics, Business that is Entrepreneurs, Religion and that is the category that Prophet Albert- AsiheneArjarquah falls under,” he said.
According to him, “some of the distinguished personalities awarded include Prof. Naana Jane Opoku- Agyemang, Totobi Kwakye and many others for recognition of their impact in society. They went through UCC and completed UCC and they are standing out in their various fields of endeavours.”
Prophet Albert-Asihene-Arjarquah expressed his appreciation to the UCC Alumni Association for the recognition.
He entreated all alumni to distinguish themselves wherever they find themselves to impart and impact generations.
He called for sustained unity and networking among UCC alumni members to strengthen the association to leverage the power of unity and like-minded to transform society.

The association, for instance, intends to establish a scholarship scheme to support at least 50 needy but brilliant students annually to pursue various academic disciplines in UCC.
