I remember profoundly, the early mornings that my team and I waited with immense anticipation for the delivery of our packs of Waakye, as the energetic starter packs for our day.
You are our hero, my sister and an example to the Ghanaian business community of how dedication and passion can propel our Nation’s Commercial agenda” ” he wrote
