Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ben Dotsei Malor, a former presidential staffer in the John Mahama regime, has paid a visit to Sister Yaavi, a woman who provided assistance to him while he was a student at the University of Ghana.
In a post on social media, Molor revealed that Sister Yaavi and her younger sister Ameyo, often gave him some free food, without him asking.
At the time on Legon campus, Malor was without food on many occasions, simply because there was little or no money. ''I even started to convince myself that I studied best on an empty stomach,'' he said. However, Malor reveals that Sister Yaavi and her sister came to his rescue during his time of great financial difficulty.
In another story, Obaa Rose is a budding female gospel singer with a physical disability who is making great strides despite her physical state.
The resilient Ghanaian woman has managed to release singles, including Aseda, Depend on God, and a few others that are already touching lives.
Her journey as a promising career gospel singer has not been free of major roadblocks. According to Crime Check TV, Rose has faced unacceptable sexual advances from the men she approached for help to produce her songs.
