A 12-year-old boy who was home-schooled by his father has gained admission at the University of Ghana’s Distance Education School.

Viemens Bamfo, dropped out of school after lower primary.

His father, Robert Bamfo has been tutoring his son for the past 3 years in various subjects which prepared him to sit for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private students, popularly known as Nov-Dec, which he passed.

The 12-year-old boy is currently studying Public Administration at the University of Ghana Distance Education School as he aims at becoming the president of Ghana by age 40.

Viemens is not the only beneficiary of homeschooling. His senior brother, 20-year-old Edwin Bamfo also went through the same training and has since completed the Kwame Nkrumah University (KNUST) with Upper-Class honours in Environmental Science.

Viemens was part of some 2,900 students pursuing various courses at the University of Ghana’s Distance Education School who were matriculated on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

The event which was to usher the fresh students into the school was held at the University of Ghana’s City Campus near the Central Business district in Accra.
