Akannae Ayine Ebenezer, a science student of the Navrongo SHS in the Upper East, has eight As in the recently-concluded WASSCE, but risks missing out on university education.
Ebenezer found out when the results were released on Wednesday that he had A in all the subjects he sat for, including Physics, Core Maths, Elective Maths and Chemistry.
However, poverty is threatening to shatter his dreams of going to the university to become a medical doctor, according to a report by 3news.com.
Ebenezer's parents are said to be very poor.
His mother reportedly washes people's clothes while his father does farming in Kumasi.
Due to the inability of his parents to properly cater for him, the Presbyterian Church in Bolgatanga adopted him.
Ebenezer's guardian is said to be appealing to members of the public for support to finance his university education.
On social media, Ghanaians urged Ebenezer's guardian to seek support from the scholarship secretariat.
