Dear Mr President,
Where do I start from? Do I mention my name? Well, if I were to mention my name, you would not be able to identify me anyway, for I bear a name which is very common in all parts of the country.
Mr President, are you wondering if this is another letter from your critics? Absolutely not. I write this letter with a gladsome heart to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for making my dream of becoming a catering teacher come true.
I am 37 years old now. To have ever thought of teaching in a Government school in my most cherished career in Ghana would have been a mirage some months ago.I completed my HND in 2013. I have been home with depression for five years. In my depressed state,I attempted two unsuccessful suicides. Mr President, I have even been to Saudi Arabia to search for greener pastures because I have been denied of work as an ordinary Ghanaian to earn my daily in Ghana. I find myself in a country where a certain child in the Montessori has a job or position “futurely”secured while the ordinary first class graduate with ordinary Ghanaian parents is still at home, devastated, not knowing where to send the next application letter. You are not hearing this for the first time, are you?
Now, the tide has turned. Thank God that today,the 4th of DEC 2018,I woke up as a catering teacher,a graduate employee of NABCO.I am very happy today going to work. Even though I DON’T know when I will get my salary, it still feels good to finally be employed.
I am sincerely hoping that things will finally go well for us as ordinary Ghanaians.Thank you once again, President of Ghana for remembering “me” by creating a work for “me”. I look forward to your betterment of the lives of the ordinary Ghanaian.
NABCO: A fulfilled citizen open letter to Akuffo Addo
