A determined Ghanaian mother has taken an aptitude test along with her baby at the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Hall in Tamale in the Northern Region.
The woman whose identity is unknown was captured alongside her baby as she sat for the aptitude test for selection to training as a mechanical technician under the government's Accelerated Oil and Gas Capacity Building Programme (AOGC).
In a post sighted on the Twitter page of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, Gabby Otchere-Darko, an invigilator could be seen carrying the baby to allow his mother to write her test without impediment.
''This determined mum turned up with her suckling baby at the WAEC Hall, Tamale, yesterday to write an aptitude test for selection to training as a mechanical technician under the [government's] Accelerated Oil and Gas Capacity Building Programme [AOGC]. 100 youths from across Ghana were selected,'' his post read.
The post has gathered the reaction and comments of many who have described the woman as an epitome of resilience and determination.
The AOGC was launched by the Ministry of Energy in partnership with the Regional Maritime University (RMU) on November 7, 2017, to annually train people for the Oil and Gas industry.
It aims to build individuals' technical, vocational, apprenticeship, development, and utilisation capacities.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported Akusika Akuffo has made the trends after making what many consider as degrading remarks about degrees earned from Ho Technical University.
Akuffo was commenting on the appointment of Jake Bediako as the Presidential Coordinator for Youth Engagement and Strategy at the Office of the President.
YEN.com.gh previously reported that many have described Bediako's elevation as a 'job for the boys' and heavily criticised the government.
