Akosua, an orphan and a former student of Juaso Senior High Technical School at Juaso in the Ashanti Region obtained grade A in eight subjects in the 2023 WASSCE. 

The audience gathered at the National Theatre where WAEC held its Distinction Awards were shocked to hear that Akosua was still at home because there were no funds to enable her to continue her education. 

Meanwhile, WAEC had adjudged her the best candidate in the technical programme. 

Soon after taking her cash prize and certificate of recognition from WAEC, Dr Eric Nkansah, Director General of the Ghana Education Service  (GES) announced to the audience that he was going to take care of Akosua’s education. 

Soon after the programme, the GNA gathered that Dr Nkansah, a native of Juaso had asked that Akosua together with some family members should see him. 

Akosua told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that she aspired to be a civil engineer. 

Mr John Kapi, Head of Public Affairs WAEC, made Akosua's plight known at the Council’s Distinction awards ceremony. 

Mr Kapi after announcing Akosua’s excellent grades obtained in the 2023 WASSCE for School Candidates said despite Akosua’s grades, she was not in any tertiary school. 

He said Akosua needed support to enable her to continue with her education at the tertiary level
