A vulcanizer has amazed social media users after he was seen teaching a young boy English on a board at his shop near a principal street in his area.
The photo that was sighted by Legit.ng in the popular Facebook group TroTro Diaries surprised the members mainly because vulcanizers are part of the professions perceived by most people as reserved for the uneducated.
However, the gentleman who was seen at Palladium in Accra teaching the boy has clearly suggested that the notion is probably false for the most part.
Below is what some Ghanaians had to say about the viral photo:
Bright Kwabena opined that:
Opportunity and chance in Ghana are in the hands of those who don't need it. By now a principal somewhere is forcing a relative to get to college or a politician and all his children are on GoG scholarship. Its sad.
Godfred Asante Appah's comment warmed many hearts. He said:
I am a headmaster. Let him contact me on the following number and l shall send him some books to help him do the job better. More grease to your elbow.
Samuel Nana Ntim Gyakari revealed:
"On the board is "LEVITICUS 19: 32."You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD"..below are Consonants

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported a Nigerian lady, Iheoma Sunday, used her one-year National Youth Service Corps programme to make many smile.
Iheoma said that she took it upon herself to raise awareness and source for funds to renovate classrooms in disuse.
She revealed that with the help of the project, students who could not continue their education because they lacked conducive environments to learn returned to their classes.
