Viemens Bamfo is the 12-year-old genius who has gained admission to the University Of Ghan

12-year-old Viemens Bamford’s name will go down in several history books as perhaps one of the youngest persons to enter the University.

He was among the over 2900 freshmen who were matriculated last weekend into the University of Ghana.

According to his father, Robert Bamfo who doubles as his tutor, he has been tutoring his son for the past 3 years in various subjects which prepared him to sit for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private students which he passed with flying colours

Viemens is the second child in his family to undergo this style of education as his elder brother, Edwin Bamfo who graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as an Environmental Scientist at the age of twenty was trained by their dad.

In an interview with Accra-based Citi TV, he stated that his father uses what his children like to teach them – teaching by association.

“We combined the syllabus… we used the Cambridge syllabus and the WASSCE syllabus… so I understood some basic things about [them],” he said.

The 12-year-old boy is currently studying Public Administration at the University of Ghana Distance Education School as he aims at becoming the president of Ghana by age 40.

Viemens is not the only beneficiary of homeschooling. His senior brother, 20-year-old Edwin Bamfo also went through the same training and has since completed the Kwame Nkrumah University (KNUST) with Upper-Class honours in Environmental Science.
