Before it makes its way to Ghana, the ship would help with a project being undertaken by Tullow Oil Plc in Guyana.

Social media users have showered praises on the Ghanaian entrepreneur for the amazing feat:

Asiama thanked God for the good news.

Dumfeh added that his parents would be proud of him.

Kumashie believes the best is yet to come.

Dwimoh hoped Okyere would do more.

In other news, despite completing the 2019 West African Examination Certificate Examination (WASSCE) with a near distinction, Sackey Abednego, a former student of Kade Senior High/Technical, faces a real challenge of not being able to further his education.

Sackey Abednego graduated high school with a remarkable score of 7As and B3.

The former science student chalked all As in Elective and Core Mathematics, Integrated Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Social Studies and B3 in English Language.

Despite this laudable feat, Sackey Abednego, may not be able to further his education this year because he cannot afford to pay his tertiary education.
