Awunyo Israel, a young Ghanaian teenager who has gained admission into the University of Ghana to study Dental Surgery has appealed to popular Ghanaian journalists for assistance to pay his admission fees.
While it is not too clear whether or not he’s seeking for scholarship, Awunyo Israel, took to Twitter with a new account to solicit help from Citi FM radio and TV show hosts, Bernard Avle and Kojo Akoto Boateng, to enable him pay his fees.
Awunyo Israel, who has completed senior high school shared photos of his certificate along with a caption appealing to other people to assist him.
However, details of his provisional results show that he sat a WASSCE private exams in 2017.
The young Ghanaian teen appeared very frustrated while stating that the world was crushing on him.
‘‘@KojoAB this is my result sir. Please I am on the of giving up.I have gained admission into the u university of Ghana. The world is falling on me and everything seems to be tearing apart .Please sir help me,’’ his post on Twitter stated.
Like Awunyo Hosi, most young brilliant but needy students with exceptional grades would miss the opportunity of pursuing tertiary education even after gaining admission into the university.
Hopefully, some benevolent people would embark on the kind gesture of providing assistance to these intelligent students.
Meanwhile, from a very deprived family, a young brilliant Ghanaian boy had to struggle to complete high school and despite having completed with remarkable grades, Abdul Razak, nearly missed an opportunity to pursue tertiary education.
The young intelligent student received admission to study medicine at the University of Development Studies (UDS) but nearly missed the opportunity because his parents couldn’t afford to pay his admission fee before the deadline.
