A former PRESEC student who was working as a fuel attendant after school because his parents could not support him through school anymore has received a scholarship.

The Ghana National Petroleum Commission (GNPC) has offered Benjamin Darko a scholarship to study Chemical Engineering at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

He is expected to start in the next school year, which will be the 2023/2024 academic year.

Benjamin is not the only one to receive a scholarship from the GNPC in recent times. The corporation offered a scholarship to a young Ghanaian who also couldn't afford to pay his university fees and was engaging in illegal mining.

Young Stephen Koomson was offered a full educational scholarship to study law at the University of Ghana.

Social media users express joy over Benjamin Darko's admission

Several tweeps have expressed their happiness after Nana Aba shared the latest development on her timeline. Below are some reactions:

Benjamin Darko worked as a fuel attendant

Earlier, reported that Benjamin Darko attended the Presbyterian Boys Senior High School in Legon, of the Greater Accra Region.

Even though he passed the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in 2021 with 5As and 3Bs, he was working as a fuel attendant at a Goil fuel station.

His father, Kwabena Gyewu, told GHOne TV that he could not pay for Benjamin’s tertiary education since his income was not enough.

Benjamin's goal is to work in biotechnology or medicine. However, the lack of money at home seemed to have crushed that goal.
