The Parliamentary Candidate (PC) for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Navrongo Central Constituency of the Upper East Region has promised to finance the education of young lady in the constituency who contested the National Science and Maths Quiz (NMSQ) for the Navrongo Senior High School, passed her exam and yet couldn’t further her education. Jennifer Anaale Apingu was found to be working in a bar.
The situation of the Miss Apingu was brought to the attention of the public by celebrated journalist, Manasseh Awuni Azure.
“If you followed the NSMQ keenly, you would have seen this young woman in the photos representing her school in last year’s contest. If you ever bought goods at the Ejisu market in early 2021, it is possible this young girl was the head porter (kayayo) who helped you carry your load to your vehicle or destination. That’s the work she did to support her education in senior high school and still made the grades you see in this picture.”
“Jennifer Anaale Apingu is an exceptionally brilliant girl who is currently working at a drinking spot in Navrongo to survive. Her chances of going to school are slim despite her great academic performance. On my birthday, I want to make a special appeal to you to help this girl go to university. She has applied to the KNUST and UDS,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
Touched by the plight of Jennifer Anaale Apingu, the PC for the NDC in Navrongo, Simon Akibange Aworigo has promised to finance the education of the lady once she gets admission to pursue a course she is interested in.
Mr. Akibange Aworigo made these comments when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today.
“I have spoken to the lady myself and I have promised to sponsor her education once she gets admission. She wants to study medicine,” he said.
