It very sad that after taking the opportunity of the government flagship program free SHS and performing excellently a needy but brilliant student will become an OKADA driver,this is the nightmare of Evans Takpolley a student of BAIDOO BONSO SENIOR HIGH/TECH SCHOOL in the Jomoro district of the western region.
After checking his results he publicly praised the government for giving him such an appointment after JHS knowing very well that her parent couldn’t afford to take him to SHS if not for this free SHS policy, he lamented.
He said after showing his excellent WASSCE results to his parents having had 6As and 2Bs his parents who are farmers at Agyeza a suburb in the Jomoro District told him they can’t afford to take him to the university because they are poor and that he should start with riding OKADA since it a lucrative business in that area. He wept uncontrollably speaking to reporters of www.westernnewsgh.com.
He said,he is now looking up to God and any well meaning Ghanaian to come to his aid. He said if the government will wipe out his tears by granting him scholarship to study at the tertiary level he will be grateful.
He ended by commending the government for implementing the free SHS policy.
