Here is what Dr. Tamaklo had to say about his award, “I am honored to have been awarded 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2015' by Ambassador Lyeo Woon-Ki of the Republic of Korea at the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Ghana Awards…. I could not have accomplished anything without the tremendous support of my beautiful wife and partner, Becci, my family and my management team. I would also like to dedicate this award to the amazingly talented and inspiring staff at Nyaho Medical Centre, to encourage and motivate us onwards to accomplish our mission of delivering quality healthcare for all Ghanaians. My father used to say to me, 'the heights reached and kept by great men, were not attained by sudden flight, but as their companions slept, were toiling upwards through the night.' Let us keep up the good work!”


Kudos to Dr. E. C. Tamaklo!
