Two years ago, I was on my way to the hostel from lectures when this car pulled up in front of me.

In the car was a well-known politician who opted to lift me to where I was going.

Three weeks later, we started spiraled into us having sex. As we had one thing happened after the other, I just thought it would be a good idea to extort money from him. After all, these politicians were lavishing the everyday-Ghanaian’s taxes on big cars and big hotels.

But no! The highest this man would give me was GH₵ 200.00. But for him, I wouldn’t have known that some politicians were so stingy. I always thought they had so much money to spend on young girls like me.

Even with whatever he gave me, I had to go through a lot to get it but anytime he needed sex, he found his way to come look for me.

My Boyfriend’s birthday was fast approaching and I needed to buy a present for him.

This politician didn’t like protected sex. So it was easy for me to trap him with pregnancy.

A month after our last sex, I broke the news to him. He said he had a hospital he will take me to. I said no to him and he stopped talking to me.

One week later, I sent him a message to tell him that I needed GH₵ 2,000 to have an abortion.

He called to say he was going to give me a GH₵1,000 but I refused and he told me that was all he could afford.

I called to tell him that if he didn’t give me the money, I was going to expose him. Man got scared!

Evetually, though he didn’t give me what I wanted, he was able to give me GH₵1,500 and can you believe that a month after the supposed abortion, he called and requested to meet me. I kept on giving him excuses until he gave up.

And that was how I was able to do a surprise birthday party for my boyfriend with my fake pregnancy.
