Adisadel College: Family sells late businessman’s luxury cars to fund legacy project at alma mater

Luxury cars once owned by the late business mogul Miguel Atu Mould have been sold to fund a legacy dormitory project at his alma mater, Adisadel College in , Ghana.

The GH¢5 million ($870,000) block includes six dormitories with perfect rooms, 150 beds with lockers, washrooms in every dormitory (six students to a toilet facility) and ironing space. The facility also includes a borehole with overhead tanks and a visitor's lounge with a television.

Atu Mould was the Chief Executive of Makam Plant Hire, an indigenous company that rented earth-moving equipment among other logistics and was also involved in the construction of sea defence walls.

His love for luxury cars made him a collector of high-priced vehicles, including a Lamborghini Urus, Lamborghini Harracan, and Ariel Atom. After his death in November 2020, Atu's mother, Sati Ocran, suggested the sale of his collection to fund his dream legacy project at Adisadel College.

“Atu's heartbeat project suggested by his mother, Sati Ocran, originated from Atu Mould himself,” said his brother Lee Ocran Tandoh at the handing-over ceremony. “Almost all the source of funding for the project had come directly from the proceeds of the sale of his most beloved worldly possessions which were his toys (cars).

Apart from the significant monetary value these cars collectively possessed, the sentimental value of the cars was priceless by virtue of the love Atu had for his ‘toys.'”

Last Saturday, on what would have been Atu Mould's 51st birthday, the Atu Mould House, the dormitory facility built with the proceeds of the car sales, was handed over to the management of Adisadel College in Cape Coast to help de-congest the dormitories.

The family hopes that the project will touch many more lives and impact others to become like Atu. The headmaster of the school, Samuel Kofi Agudogo, thanked the Mould family for the dormitory, saying it was certain to ease congestion in school, and commended the family and Santa 89-year group for their support in providing the edifice for the students.

Sir Sam Jonah, a mining executive and an old student of Adisadel who chaired the function, commended the family for the project, saying it was a show of the Adisadel spirit that would inspire many more, especially the students, to aspire to do the same.
