The father of the record setting 13 year old girl who was admitted to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), says that record would not stand for long.
Kwadwo Gyan-Darkwa, father of Ruth Ama Gyan-Darkwa, says he has a younger son who would beat his sister’s record shattering achievement.
The country has been awash this week with news of Ruth, a 13 year old gaining admission into KNUST to study Mathematics.

Ruth continues a proud family tradition of youth excellence. Her elder sister, Grace, graduated from the University this year with a Political Science degree, at only 18 years of age.
But their father, Kwadwo, says a younger son would beat his sisters and enter university at the age of 11.
“One of [my children], the sixth one, we want to make it a project for him to get to university around 11. We want him to beat Ruth’s record,” he said.
