I cannot express all the joyous and triumphant moment the Opera news Hub Ghana had filled my heart with, owing to the vast contribution the news hub had brought into my life by helping into a permanent job at the St Andrews SHS in Assin Foso, Central region.
I was jobless immediately I finished my mandatory national service at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly in 2017/2018.
I couldn't write the NTC Teachers Licensure examination and as such couldn't meet the requirements needed for one to be recruited into the SHS in Ghana in those days after obtaining second class honour in one of the top educational courses at the University of Education Winneba.
During the lockdown period last year, around the month of May, 2021, I saw the advertisement of the Opera news hub recruitment for all good and skillful writers and online and registered immediately to become a news hub writer with the Wemedia name as Kwakus.
I entered into writing especially in political, society, entertainment and sports news on the news hub which I published and earned some money that helped me financially throughout the lockdown period at the Greater Kumasi due to the global pandemic, the Corona virus virus.
I was always worried and searched on the internet for other permanent recruitments but to no avail so I was weary and downhearted and prayed to God to help me secure a permanent job.
On January 2021, I heard on the radio stations reporting about St Andrews SHS, one of the private SHS in Ghana topped the WASSCE 2020 as a trending story and decided to delve deep into the issue and wrote my side of story about the schools remarkable achievements in WASSCE.
I searched the school myself on google and took the contact and when I saved it, one of the popular Chief Executive Officers name showed as he replied me so I forwarded the article I wrote for the school to him and he marvelled looking at how I sacrificed, devoted my own free will and time to uplift the image of St Andrews SHS on Opera news.
After narrating to him about my unemployed status, he himself revealed his identity as the CEO and owner of the school and told me I would be a good addition to his school to project the good works with my article publication.
He assured that he may need my service as a social studies teacher and gave me a date to come for interview at the St Andrews SHS premise, the Assin Foso and main campus.
On the day of the interview, I took a bus at the Asafo Winneba and Cape Coast station and arrived at the school for the interview and passed successfully.
I saw Dr Richard Kofi Asiedu, the CEO of St Andrews SHS and Group of Companies with his Rolls Royce and he told me to report the following week for my appointment letter as a permanent teacher and on the appointment letter, I found out that I was going to receive GH¢ 1500 in every month at the GBC
This had been the praise and testimonies I always give out to people about the biggest opportunity the Opera news hub had made in my life to achieve a tremendous height.
