“Yaw told me he got aggregate 20 and that, he has gotten a school at Kwahu Tafo but his aunt wanted him to learn a skill instead of continuing his education because she is not financially sound to support his education”.

“I told him, his mother had gone to Volta and that, he should exercise patience for her to return so we could deal with the issue, as I am also not in a position to support his education due to my poor health condition,” she told the reporter.

“He left the house about 6 am in the morning without informing me, so I called to find out where he has been after complaining earlier of being hungry. He told me he had gone to my aunt’s place at Nsuaem”.
