Student who broke 39-year-old record cries out
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that an IMSU graduate who broke a 39-year-old record at the university has stated that none of the persons who promised him gifts have redeemed them.
The young man became an internet sensation after YEN.com.gh's report earlier in the year highlighting his academic achievement.
More than 8 months down the line, nothing has been done in recognizing his feat by his institution neither have the persons who promised rewards kept their words.
