Sammy Adu Boakye's post garners support

Following the appeal for help, Boakye said his former boss offered to adopt the young man and cater for his needs.

''A few weeks ago, I came to you with excellent results of an orphan whose dream was to become a medical doctor. A few minutes after, my former boss and big brother Martin Osei Kwaku Brobbey intervened with a simple statement, 'Sammy, I have adopted this child and will ensure all things concerning him are taken care of"'.

Boakye recounted that they gained fee-paying admission into the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
