President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured the people of Ghana that his government will do all it takes to stamp out Child Trafficking in the country.
Addressing the Okyehene and attendees of The President’s end of year party for the children of Kyebi organised by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, President Akufo Addo said Child Trafficking which is a challenge in Ghana is an affront to the Ghanaian culture and the country’s future.
To that end, he stated that his administration will take all necessary steps to bring the phenomenon to an end.
President Akufo-Addo also observed that his government is looking beyond the provision of free Senior High School (SHS) Education in Ghana.
It is his hope that government will develop an all-round education system for the children of Ghana.
The Okyehene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin in a short address admonished parents to be mindful of what their children are watching on TV and the kind of video games they play late into the night.
He added that the free SHS programme of the Nana Akufo Addo government does not guarantee a pass for students.
According to him, there is the need for the beneficiaries of the free SHS programme to study hard and acquit themselves equitably for the investment made in them.
