A Ghanaian father of four named Abraham who hails from Somanya in the Eastern Region of Ghana was abandoned by a church as well as a medical facility.
According to Nana Akwasi Addo, an editor at Pink FM who was an eye-witness to the incident, he was called with reports that a man had been lying homeless for days without attention.
"I was told someone was lying unconscious beside a church building. I asked to be given some few minutes to attend to the situation," he recalls.

Akwasi indicated that the gentleman had come to the local Apostolic Church premises with the hope of worshipping with the congregants but was denied access.

It is indicated that Abraham was loitering since then and residents who found him asked whether he could trace his family but all contacts he gave could not reach any relative of his.
At the scene, whilst waiting for the ambulance which never came after calling, we knocked at the door of the pastor. To our surprise, this Pastor told us he has no business in taking care of Abraham even though he as loitering around his church premises.
Finally, when there was an ambulance, Akwasi and a police officer took the patient to the Ngleshie-Amanfro health centre where he discharged and turned away just after a few hours although his condition was critical.
"I visited the police station and was told I should leave him at the health facility, back there, nurses at the facility also directed I take him to the police station. I called the police emergency line but had no proper response," the editor concluded his statement.
Interestingly, YEN.com.gh recently reported that a gentleman identified as @NobleQuansah on Twitter has narrated how he was able to get his cousin into the university simply because of Free SHS policy by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
In the post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his personal handle, Quansah explained that since he was not required to pay any fees for his cousin, he was able to save up the money to sponsor her tertiary education.
