Member of parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George has revealed he started from a very humble beginning before rising to prominence.
According to the National Democratic Congress lawmaker, life was difficult for him when he returned from Nigeria to Ghana.
Sharing his story on Facebook, the man who is affectionately Dzata, said he was so broke that he used to walk from Lominava to Osu in search for job.
“Exactly 13 years ago, I came back home to Ghana to ‘start life’. A young man with God, ambition, drive, determination and only GHS1.50p in my pocket.
“The journey has been arduous many times with absolutely no hope in sight but my ultimate belief in God and myself have kept me going. Many days I walked from Lomnava to Osu in search of a job,” he said.
