The new transformer of waste tyres into cash is known as Bernard Nii Nartey, affectionately called Papa Nii, who grew up in the Winneba, the Central Accra Region of Ghana.
He is a former student of Wa Senior High School; and a graduate from the University of Cape Coast with a degree in BA Social Science.
After university, he did his national service at Apostle Safo Technology Centre at Gomoa Mpota, as a pattern maker. He remained in the company after his service, but not as a permanent worker on payroll.
while there, he applied for several jobs but did not have any response. In fact, it was his frustrations at not getting a job that, one day, pushed him apply for a ‘house boy’ (a name given to male house helps in Ghana).
