Emmanuel Binditi, a Ghanaian young man who used to work as a security officer at SSNIT in 2015 but always dreamt of becoming a medical doctor has successfully ventured into the medical field.
According to Theghanareport.com, Emmanuel is the firstborn of seven children and life has been extremely difficult for him in Accra right from the time he was brought by his dad to seek quality education.
From Bogni, a village in the Nanumba North District, he was sent to live with his granduncle at Agbogbloshie in Accra, Ghana’s largest foodstuff market.
In 2011, Emmanuel graduated from the Kadjebi Asato Senior High School with flying colours but could not make it into any tertiary institution for a lack of financial support.
In the interim, the brilliant young man let go of his medical ambition and joined Obrad Security Service in 2015 after which he was posted to the SSNIT Pension House in Accra.
After spending two years there, he was able to save GHc 1,500 from his GHc 220 monthly salary and applied to the University of Ghana but could not pay the admission fee of GHc 3,000.
However, with help from his parents and a good Samaritan, Emmanuel managed to get GHC5000 to enrol for a four-year Physician Assistant degree programme at Narh-Bita College
"Currently, I am doing clinical at the Tema General Hospital, but I still have the desire to study to become a medical doctor,” he revealed his plans for the future after graduation this year," he said.
