An almost recruited ISIS terrorist, Abdul Moomen has narrated his journey to becoming a Prisons officer.
The young man said he comes from a poor family background in Wulensi in the Northern Region and that blighted his hope of a successful life until he met Crime Check Foundation (CCF).
Moomen indicated that after years of struggling to find life easy, he has finally been admitted to the Ghana Prisons Training School where he is currently undergoing training.
He said starvation and wearing worn-out clothes were the order of the day after he completed Senior High School.
But with guidance from CCF, Moomen now breathes a sigh of relief.
According to a close ally to Moomen, he would have been a terrorist by now as he was near to being recruited into the terrorist group, ISIS.
The young man could not hide his excitement when he came back to the Foundation to show his gratitude.
“It is the making of the Lord for where I am now. It has not been easy though, through the application to medicals and finally the training. There were thousands of applicants but I sailed through,” he said.
“I am very grateful to CCF for the support offered me. You can even see the items I have been given to enable me to have successful training. I thank God,” he added.
The Executive Director of CCF, Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng encouraged the youth to be determined and ‘not to be discouraged by the chorus of there is no job in Ghana.’
He continued to advise the public to use appropriate means to get what they want.
“There are employment opportunities in the country so do not sit idle. Continue to press on till you get what you are fighting for but use the right means. Get your documentations right, do not lie about your qualification and everything will move one smoothly for you,” he charged.
