I have known this truck pusher since my childhood days at Bubiashie...His truck is the most decorated in Ghana

I know this man very well. I have known him to be a truck pusher even when I was in Primary school. I remember when the guys at Bubuashie use to make fun of him because he dresses like Bob Okala of blessed memory. It is very sad seeing him in this situation. He use to be one of the cleanest truck pushers in Bubuashie. His state now clearly shows that things are not the same anymore. Too sad!

Noble there will always be the poor amongst us until the end of day. All we can do is give help when and where we can.
Ghanaian man who moves from being a truck pusher to multi award winning CEO
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Noble Wisdom Dordoe, a vibrant Ghanaian man has recently taken to social media to open up about his journey to becoming the chief executive officer of a foundation that seeks to help needy children and the defenseless in the society.
Resorting to his LinkedIn timeline, Noble shared that due to low financial status of his family, he first had to work as a truck pusher and then moved to selling yoghurt.
Eventually, he became a security guard, after which he worked as a messenger. After working for sometime, he gathered enough money and was able to go to the university.
