Elizabeth Yamoah, the 60-year-old who sat the just ended Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) may be attaining new feats after her rather inspiring story hit the internet.
Elizabeth may be on her way to becoming a newscaster. Well, not for your typical news though.
The BECE graduate co-anchored UTV’s popular ‘Real News’ with comic actor Akrobeto on Friday, September 25 and boy oh boy, it was hilarious.
As the two struggled to read the news, one more than the other, viewers could only laugh their ribs out in amusement.
The two, after the bulletin decided to hit the dancefloor and jammed to Kuami Eugene’s “Open gate”.
Elizabeth Yamoah is said to be the oldest candidate to have sat this year’s BECE in Ghana.
She was a pupil of Agona Odoben Presby Junior High School in the Central Region.
The 60-year-old became a subject for discussion on social media after pictures of her in a Presbyterian JHS uniform went viral. Though some Ghanaians are questioning the motivation behind the old woman’s decision to seek basic education at her retirement age, Elizabeth’s story is seen by many, including non-citizens, as an inspiring one.
Several messages of encouragement are pouring in from all walks of life for the candidate.
