The writing was on the wall from his Clerk House days commencing September 1975 to June 1982. Solomon Dadebo was a gentle, humble, studious and academically gifted young boy who later became Clerk House Prefect in 1981-82. Proceeding to then UST with excellent grades, he was among the few who were admitted to read Chemical Engineering in his time. It was just a matter of time that one day this reticent Odadee will lift high the flag of Presec & Ghana in the field of Engineering on the international scene.
