The Second Lady, Samira Bawumia has offered to fully sponsor the education of 13-year-old Ruth Gyan-Darkwa, who gained admission into the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
YEN earlier reported the amazing story of young Ruth who is the first Ghanaian to gain admission into the government school to pursue a Bachelor's degree at such a young age.
Representing the Second Lady at a meeting with the Gyan-Darkwah family, was the Ashanti Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako (a.k.a Chairman Wontumi).
According to him, the gesture by the Second Lady is to encourage other young adults in the country to pursue their studies and do better in school.
In a report by Starrfmonline.com, Chairman Wontumi noted that the Second Lady will consider students who excel at their studies and off them her support as well.
The NPP chairman also offered his support to 15-year-old Josephine Gyan-Darkwa, the older sister of Ruth who wishes to pursue a course in medicine in Germany.
Chairman Wontumi said that he was impressed with her results and would gladly help her achieve her dreams.
The family of the two girls were very delighted by these gestures and thanked the Second Lady and the NPP chairman for their kindness.
