Elijah & Paul decided to set up gob3 business in Adumasi. Read their touching story.
Following the finance minister, Ken Ofori Atta’s comments concerning the government payroll, two gentlemen, namely
Elijah Adusei and Addai Gyarteng Paul, a third-year Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology student-UHAS and an Actuarial Science graduate -KNUST respectively, have decided to do something for themselves by setting up a gob3 business in Adumasi, Kumasi.
Mr. Ofori-Atta, speaking at a graduation ceremony at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA). He highlighted that 60 percent of Ghana’s GDP pays public sector workers’ salaries each month.
“That payroll is filled since we spend 60% of our sales on remunerating 650,000 employees. That’s not going to work. You have the abilities set to be able to achieve what you have to do,” he told the graduating students.
As a government, we should provide the environment, macroeconomic stability, and currency stability, as well as to ensure that you have access to the necessary skills and finance.”
The two gentlemen stated, “We were motivated by Mr.Ofori Atta’s speech. We considered it fit to establish our own business that is notably uncommon in my community.
Again, we love to employ attractive strategies in all our endeavors”.
Their answer to our question, why gob3 and what makes theirs different?
Met this response;
“We came to a consensus on gob3 because, look, Ghanaians like heavy foods early in the morning regardless of their profession.
From Professors through students to the mason. It gives you a gist of how fantastic this food could be”.
They further added that “It is uncommon to see a collabo of two university students selling gob3.
Such people are not cowards or timid but feel passionate about what they believe is positive. Again, the kind of service we render, quality control, customer care, and tolerance are our mantra.”
These two guys have decided to promote their business through social media, contact cards, and customer reviews.
However, these young gentlemen are calling on the government and prudent stakeholders to come to their aid and enable them to expand their business nationwide.
They concluded with a piece of advice for the youth… “we are not in our regular times; Covid-19 still prevails.
Therefore, we should depend not only on a profession for a living nor sit idle.
Even with GHS 100 and a suitable business, they would change the country. Tiny drops of water make a mighty ocean.
Let us fix Ghana through our attitude fixation”.
