National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag-bearer, John Mahama's, running mate, Professor Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang, has offered to help a 27-year-old Ghanaian lady whose man disappeared after she gave birth to quadruplets
A report by Pulse.com.gh sighted by YEN.com.gh confirms that after hearing of the plight of the woman, Opoku-Agyemang decided to support her with GHc2,000 and promised to do more.
The Member of Parliament for Ellembelle and former Minister of Energy and Petroleum, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, presented the donation on behalf of Prof. Opoku-Agyemang.
George Ackah allegedly abandoned his wife at Bibiani Municipal Hospital in the Western North Region after realising she was carrying quadruplets. She gave birth on Sunday, July 19.
It is indicated that the unemployed wife, who lives with Ackah in Sefwi Adukrom, a farming community, already had two children with the man before the arrival of the quadruplets.
Before the arrival of the NDC running mate's assistance, the poor mother was fortunate as some compassionate health workers contributed money to take care of her over the period in the absence of her runaway husband.
Separately, but on the subject of lending assistance, YEN.com.gh reported that Tom Russell teamed up with Alfred Kwarko, a Ghanaian, to start up an initiative that is already helping scores of people in the capital city of Ghana.
The British national's one-week visit to Ghana was with the intent to source opportunities to expand local Ghanaian businesses to the European market.
When that fell through, Russell was quite worried about the situation but decided to put his entrepreneurial skills and passion for helping people to another use.
