Umaru Sanda Amadu, a news anchor with Citi TV and Citi FM, has narrated how a young man whom he pounced on and decided to help years ago has turned out to be the best student of UPSA in his graduating year group.
The ace broadcaster narrated how the plight of a young herdsman was brought to his notice while he was driving with his father. The boy is said to have performed extremely well in his WASSCE exam, and this wowed the journalist who decided to take a step further to ensure the guy has a promising future.
On a facebook post, Umaru Sanda, said, “Today is one of my proudest days in life. 4 years ago, I was driving my father to visit his brother at Katamansu near Ashaiman when a gentleman emerged from the bushes brandishing the WASSCE results of his junior brother. I screamed in excitement when I saw the As on the paper. His brother asked that I help. If I didn’t, he told me, his little brother would remain a herdsman slaving in the bushes for next to nothing.
I discussed the boy with my bosses at Citi FM, Sammens and Bernard Avle. They were wowed and decided this boy must not be left to “rot” in the bush.
Citi FM and UPSA offered him a joint scholarship to study Accounting. Today, Ali Inusah did not only graduate with First Class, but also delivered a speech as the Valedictorian of the graduating class. His speech made me tear up and today, I am very happy and thankful to God, that one other under-privileged person has been given a leveler.
This is awesome. Kudos to Umaru Sanda Amadu
