A young Ghanaian teacher who decided to put everything on the line in order to try his luck at sports betting has unwittingly attracted his own downfall and unnecessary issues.
The CEO of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program, Mr. Kofi Ofosu Nkansah, republished the amusing yet depressing story on his Facebook timeline.
The young instructor applied for a GHC 40,000 loan with the intended intention of using some of the funds to pay for his mother’s medical expenses and the remaining sum for himself.
After being approved for the loan, he was persuaded to use some of the funds by one of his friends who is a well-known sports bettor in order to try his luck.
His friend was able to convince him by telling him a story about how some daring individuals won large by going all-in and taking no chances.
