Good News for Tallest man in Volta Region: lands ambassadorial contract

The tallest in the Volta Region, Charles Sogli, has secured a contract with Twellium Industrial Company Limited, a local manufacturer of drinks and other food products.

Mr Ali Ajami, Marketing Director of the Company, which produces Verna purified water and also popular energy fizz, Rush, appended a one-year brand ambassadorial agreement with the 22-year-old who stands close to 8 feet tall, in Accra on Monday.

The Marketing Director said he looked forward to a long-lasting relationship and the growth of both parties and urged the talent to continue to trust the Company’s commitment.

Charles had to drop out from school at class five when he could not bear taunts and mockeries over his unusual size, and when he had to walk barefoot because there were no shoes to fit his feet.

He was sent to Ho by a philanthropist and took interest in welding and fabrication, and could be seen walking daily between his place of abode and apprenticeship as vehicle cabins could not contain him.

Recent media activity, especially by the Ghana News Agency, granted him public attention, which included some international interest.

Mr. Daniel Agbesi-Latsu, the spokesman for Mr Sogli, called on the Company to focus also on his educational needs, which had been affected by the early dropout from school.

Charles, who hails from Agortime Ziope in the Volta Region, is among five children of a farmer family, and the only one with a size almost twice as large as the average man.

More Queues for Ghana Card at GRA offices in Accra

Ghana Card to be used for foreign travels soon - NIA boss | Photos

There were long queues at some Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) offices in Accra where people had gathered to register for the Ghana Card yesterday.

That followed decision by the Communications Ministry for mobile phone subscribers to re-register their SIM cards, with the Ghana Card as the only recognised identification card for the exercise.


As of 5:30 a.m., many people had queued up at the GRA offices in their effort to register for the card.

The centres visited included GRA offices at the Kaneshie First Light, Osu, Ringway Central, Achimota, Madina Zongo Junction, as well as the premises of the new office complex of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), where the registration processes were going on smoothly.

The SIM registration exercise began on October 1, this year and so far there have not been any reported hitches in the process.

It involves dialing a number to provide some personal information, including the number of a person’s Ghana Card, after which one is asked to go to the telco service provider with the Ghana Card for his or her bio data to be captured.


However, some people who visited the Kwame Nkrumah Circle office of Vodafone to complete the process were disappointed, as the mobile network operator was yet to put in place the necessary infrastructure to capture their biometric data.

The customers had successfully completed the first stage of the process on their phones and were issued with unique codes for the second stage, which required them to visit their service provider for their data to be captured.

They were, however, asked to return next week, by which time the necessary infrastructure would have been installed to facilitate a smooth exercise.


The situation was, however, different at the Ring Road office of MTN, where a desk had been mounted purposely for the registration exercise, with an official seen taking the biometric data of customers who were required to provide their unique code, Ghana Card and digital address (optional) for the registration.

The company subsequently took the pictures and fingerprints of customers, before completing the entire process, which lasted about 10 minutes.


At AirtelTigo, customers were disappointed because the company was yet to begin the exercise.

They were asked to return next week for the registration.
