A young Ghanaian teacher who gambled everything on sports has unwittingly attracted his own downfall and unnecessary troubles.
The CEO of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program, Mr. Kofi Ofosu Nkansah, republished the amusing yet depressing tale on his Facebook page.
The young instructor applied for a GHC 40,000 loan with the intended intention of using some of the funds to pay for his mother’s medical expenses and the remaining sum for himself.
After being approved for the loan, he was persuaded to use some of the funds by one of his friends who is a well-known sports bettor in order to try his luck.
His friend was able to convince him by telling him a story about how some daring individuals won large by going all-in and taking no chances.
He first placed half of the Ghc 40,000 loan to wager on Aviator after becoming sufficiently certain that he would also make easy money, but regrettably, he was “burned.”
He made the decision to use the last 20,000 Ghc to attack again, however this time he was severely smacked in the face and balls.
The young man reportedly lost Ghc 40,000 in total in less than a minute.
His mother, who was counting on him to pay her bills, passed away as well, and now he has pay for her burial.
Copied: Someone’s betting experience.
“So this teacher went for Gh¢40,000 bank loan. His mother wasn’t feeling well so he wanted to use part of the loan for his mother’s medical expenses. A friend of his recommended aviator to him and how he can make about Gh¢5000 within few seconds, and add it to his 40,000 loan. He was very impressed.
“So he wanted to win big at a go. He first deposited 20,000, so that he can withdraw in few seconds, plus big profit. Unfortunately, the thing just went down wheewww sshhh instantly like that within one second. My guy was panting. So he decided to recoup his money. He was under serious pressure.
“One thing about betting is, if u lose money, you are not able to think straight again oo. All u think about is the money you have lost, and the zeal to get it back.
“Ladies and gentlemen, in less than one minute, this guy lost the remaining Gh¢20,000. He just threw away the Gh¢40,000 loan in a matter of seconds. Before he became aware of himself.
“The money is gone forever and ever. Unfortunately, his mother died. Hmmm. Funeral expenses are also on him too. Charlie, we for shine our eyes oo.
