A young Ghanaian man and business owner, Faisal Kofi Osei, has recounted how he finally let go and forgave his father after years of neglect.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AdinkraConcepts recalled that his long-time high school friend Joseph Akwasi-Kumah urged him to forgive his (Osei) father.

The duo was close friends in school but lost touch after completing their studies in high school.

''He was the Assistant School Prefect, and I was the Assistant SRC Secretary. We had a lot of moments together and being Accra boys, we could relate to many things,'' said Osei in a Facebook post.

He revealed that their relationship was deeply rooted in their dislike of their fathers. ''We bonded more because we believed our fathers had not been good to us. There was a very deep resentment toward them.''

Good old friend links up

Then on September 17, 2013, Akwasi got in touch to tell Osei via Facebook messenger that his (Akwasi) father had passed.

''He said he had lost his dad and that I should tell my dad for him. I told him I didn’t have his number.
''He said he was fortunate to have patched up with his dad and that I should try to do the same. It sounded like some “Wrobbish” talk at the time,'' Osei recalled.

Osei reunites with his dad

However, Osei would take steps to reunite with his father after a message from a preacher about forgiveness and the blessing of the father in December 2013.

''I went to my mum and took my dad's number. One of the best decisions of my life was calling my old man.''

Osei recounted how his father made up for the lost time with him and his other siblings before he passed.

''This man knew every little detail of my life. In 2014 when I was coining AdinkraConcepts, he was the brain behind it. In the last 10 years of his life with me. He gave everything. Everything in him was to make sure he rights some of his wrongs, tell the real truth about issues, and above all give his all “Life” to his children.
''I had the best dad I could have wished for, many lost years but a Great many years and a forever to cherish memories and wise words.''
