A sixteen-year-old homeless mother, Abigail Nartey, abandoned by her father over her unruly behaviour, is appealing for help to cater for her newborn baby.
The teenager was rendered homeless and moved to Tema Community 22 in the Greater Accra Region after her birth father threw her out from the house.
According to Nartey, she met a young man, aged 18, who works as a minibus ''trotro'' conductor and got sexually involved with him, becoming pregnant as a result.
The homeless teen spoke to Regina Asamoah of Atinka FM/TV in an interview not long before giving birth.
''I was living with my father but he sacked me because of my waywardness. I moved to Tema 22. I became unruly, and I met a young man called Joshua and he got me pregnant.
''I was taken to his mother and my father but they both asked me to go to the man who got me pregnant, but he is homeless. He gives me GHs20.00 every month for antenatal.''
A woman who received the teen into her house after she moved to Tema has also ejected her because Abigail's father has since refused to help with the situation, the teenager said.
Meanwhile, Abigail Nartey has given birth to a baby boy at the Ashaiman Community Hospital.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, the new mother bemoaned that she has been neglected at the hospital after giving birth.
''My grandmother visited me at the hospital but left because of the financial burden.''
Appeal for financial support
''I want to go home now, but I have to pay GHc1,400.00 before I would be discharged. Please help me because I'm tired and my baby isn't feeling too well,'' she said.

In a clip sighted on social media, the presiding pastor of God’s Solution Center (GSC), warned against victimising the former socialite who recently converted to Christianity.
''Somebody repents and says that I want to go and serve God then these people come out as the Pharisees to criticise, and if you don't take care, you kill yourself.''
