“I remember how my mother cried one afternoon in 2007 … when she saw all the hustle am going thru .. Walking from circle to Tema in and out for 1 year 8 months almost 2 years.. She cried and asked me “Nana is it by force to talk on radio”

“then with tears she prayed .. And said to GOD in front of me dat she doesn’t have anything to support me but she prays to GOD to grant my wish! Today here am I !! The #ChildrenPresident .. Never give up no matter what u going thru.. Suicide is not an option.. if GOD can do it for me HE can do it for you
