A recent publication by My Joy Online reports that Mr. Lawrence Edutuah Asiaw, the current 29-year-old District Chief Executive (DCE) of Asikuma Odoben Brakwa, has addressed social media trolls about the means his mother used to fund his education.
According to the report, the DCE said he is not perturbed by people making fun of his mother for begging for alms on the street to enable her to put him in school.
Lawrence said he willingly accepts his background and is proud of the struggles his mother went through.
The young DCE shared that his mother had little to no income, and she decided to ask for funds from the street.

Mr Edutuah Asiaw replied trolls saying: "I don't have any problem with those who use social media to criticise me that my mother begged for alms to buy food for me and that I don't deserve to be a DCE", My Joy Online reported.
He added that God prepares individuals to brighten their ways and his mother is a shining example.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Alfred Kofi Wokanya, a retired teacher of the Nkwanta Senior High School has been approved by the inhabitants of the Nkwanta South district as their new District Chief Executive (DCE).
Kofi Wokanya who was nominated by President John Mahama in November last following the killing of former DCE Peter Kojo Kenyenso had his confirmation delayed for several months due to some unresolved security issues in the area.
He polled 34 votes to secure the mandate of the 42 member assembly on Tuesday.
Mr. Wokanya’s confirmation comes barely two weeks after some aggrieved youth of the governing NDC went on a protest in the area over what they called neglect for the appointment of a new chief executive for the area.
