The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Weija-Gbawe Obuobia Darko-Opoku has gone to the rescue of 20 students of the Pentecost Vocational Training Institute in the constituency.
Obuobia, who runs a philanthropic foundation also, gave out a cheque with an unspecified amount to settle the examination registration fee of the students.
“I am happy to have left beaming smiles on the faces of the students, especially those who have been through pecuniary difficulties, making it impossible for them to settle their fees. I paid the registration fees of twenty (20) students to enable them to write their final exams,” OB, as she is affectionately called, said in a Facebook post.
She described her time with the students as “a memorable one” because “we had loads of fun, shared ideas and networked on a day we dubbed: #RedMorning.”
“I have a strong conviction that the love and care we show to our future generation will go a long way to transform our beloved country, Ghana. They were grateful for the visit, especially coming on the heels of a similar one by the First Lady Lordina Mahama last year,” the former broadcaster said.
Obuobia also donated boxes of bottled water, canned drinks and copies of the Green Book to the institute.
