As it is always said, the journey to the top is never smooth with so many bends and turns that in so many instances appears demotivating and quenches our desire to pursue our goals and aspirations relentlessly.
This is exactly the story of Mr Sam Nartey George, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ningo-Prampram constituency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Recounting the struggles his life has gone through before he was able to break through, Sam George, through a Facebook post, said he used to walk from Lomnava to Osu – suburbs in Accra- in search of a job.
4th of JulyExactly 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.Till my breakthrough job through Uncle Dennis at UNDP got me my first IT gig with that Agency and a whole world of consulting with several UN Agencies and the World Bank opened up to me. Politics happened to me.A wife and 3 kids to boot have all happened in what seems a blur to me as I reminisce on 13 years of God’s inexplicable grace.My journey so far has been phenomenal thanks to the grace of God and the many men and women He has brought along my path. What scares me is that this is just the beginning of what God has in store for me. I reaffirm my utmost belief in His plans and purpose for my life.I am a product of #UncommonGrace. My heart burst with joy at the goodness the LORD has surrounded me with. Keep faith in Him and He would perfect His will for you in His own time.
