Abanga Abdul, a student of the Ghana Senior High School in Tamale who has created a model house to demonstrate his proposed solution to the erratic power supply in the country needs help to further his education.
Expressing his fears to YEN.com.gh, Abdul indicated that he was helped greatly by the Free SHS Policy to get this far in his formal education but will be unable to proceed into university if he does not get external support.
He further explained that this is the case because both parents of his are peasant farmers whose financial muscles are not strong enough to carry him that far.
Abdul is therefore appealing to the general public and all benevolent organizations to come to his aid as he is in his final year and will need to further his education right after writing his WASSCE.
As YEN.com.gh previously reported, the model Abanga Abdul proposed employs windmills as the alternative source of power generation for households.
He indicated that this method is highly efficient, renewable, and cost-effective as the only charges the users would incur are the capital to procure the equipment and maintenance costs once a while.
This, Abdul explains, is far better than the current system where Ghanaians have to pay bills to have power almost every month.
Meanwhile, Deborah Mmabila Azika, a young Ghanaian girl from Bea in the Upper East Region has become the best graduating chartered accountant from the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG).
Information available to YEN.com.gh indicates that Deborah received four awards at the graduation including Best Student in Advanced Taxation, Best First attempt, Overall Best Female Candidate, and Overall Best Candidate.
Prior to getting enrolled at the ICAG, Deborah studied Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) and graduated with First Class Honours and a CGPA of 3.80 at the University of Cape Coast.
