Dear Ramatu,

I am very glad to write you this letter. How are you? Hope by the grace of God you are fine.

The reason why I am writing you this letter is to tell you why “A” comes before “B”. It is because Attitude comes before Beauty.

Lower your Pride and Ego.

Even iPhone 12 pro which is GHS9,150.00 needs a SIM Card of GHS2.00 before it can operate. So be humble!

Until I hear from you, it’s goodbye.

Yours Truly,
