Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A female police officer in Delta state, Faith Okwuego Ejoh, has been celebrated for paying both the school and examination fees of 19 students in the state.
A member of the Punch editorial board, Joel Nwokeoma, who disclosed this on LinkedIn said that the students are from Ezechma Senior Secondary School in Aniocha North local government in the state.
The kids were filled with joy
He further said that the police officer is from the Galilee Police State in Ute Ogbeje. Joel revealed that the young pupils were so joyful when they realised what she did.
In praising the woman’s gesture, he said:
“She is a great woman with heart of Gold. Join me in celebrating this amazing change agent from unusual quarters. You too can make a little difference in your little corner. The way to kill darkness is to light a little candle around you.”
Joel attached a photo of the woman, and a snap showing the students and their teacher who all beamed with smiles in their group photograph.
