At the Ahafoman Senior High School examination center “B” in Goaso, a 71-year-old Kwesi Baiden is one of the applicants writing the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The father of four disclosed that throughout his early years, he faced financial challenges, which prevented him from attending basic school and earning a certificate.

After enrolling at Mozama D/A School in the Central Region, he was forced to drop at Junior High School (JHS) 2 due to financial difficulties.

Although he intended to resume his education the following year, the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted his plans.

Despite these setbacks, Mr. Baiden has now decided to pursue his education, recognizing its importance.

He aims to acquire vocational skills in Senior High School (SHS) and possibly continue to the tertiary level.

In an interview, the determined father revealed that, pursuing formal education at his age is not to secure a corporate job, as he has already passed retirement age.

However, Mr. Baiden is confident his talent and newly acquired knowledge will open new opportunities for him.

His determination and perseverance serve as an inspiration to many, demonstrating that it is never too late to pursue one’s educational dreams.
