In a frank admission, Kojo Bonsu, a former National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer aspirant, openly shared the reasons why he did not have the opportunity to attend a university.
During a television interview on Citi TV monitored by InsiderGH.com, Mr. Bonsu revealed that he has never had the chance to attend a university and that he only pursued diploma courses.
“I’ve never been to the university before. Never. I only pursued diploma courses,” he stated.
He attributed this circumstance to the unfortunate passing of his mother, which greatly affected his educational path.
He attended Tamale Secondary School (TAMASCO) between 1974 and 1979, where he completed his Ordinary Level (‘O’ Level) education.
Following that, he pursued his Advanced Level Certificate (‘A’ Level) at Drayton School in London, which he completed in 1981.
After finishing secondary school, he entered the workforce, initially working for well-known sports kit manufacturer Adidas, before moving on to various other organizations.
While working, he took up diploma courses intermittently to further his education.
In his interview with Citi TV, Mr. Bonsu fondly spoke about his mother, who served as the sole provider for their family and whom he deeply admired. He expressed his sadness over her passing, acknowledging the significant impact she had on his life.
Additionally, Mr. Bonsu disclosed that his highest educational achievement is a Diploma Certificate in Podiatry Assistant.
When asked about his plans for pursuing higher education, he humorously responded, “At this age? I’m an old man now.”
