The 2016 Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has congratulated a young Ghanaian genius who was invited to the White House.
Simon-Peter, an 8th-grader from Aurora, Colorado, is one of over 100 top science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students from across the USA who were invited to the 2016 White House Science Fair, Wednesday, April 13, 2016, according to a report on the White House website.
Below is Akufo-Addo’s letter to the genius
This is to congratulate you on the honour of being invited by US President, Barack Obama, to participate, as one of the top science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students from across the USA, in this year’s White House Science Fair today, April 13.
You and your school mates are to be highly commended for your achievement in building a prosthetic leg that allows amputees to hike, manage uneven terrain, and even skateboard! You are an excellent example to the youth of Ghana, your Motherland. Science and Technology must be the centrepiece of the educational system of our country, if we are to make the rapid transformation of our society and economy, that would bring prosperity to the mass of our people.
This is the commitment of the political party, whose presidential candidate I have the privilege to be and to which your parents also belong the New Patriotic Party.
Indeed, your mother is the 2nd Vice Chairperson of its USA Branch. I wish you luck in your further education and in all your future endeavours and hope that you will always remember that you are a Ghanaian.
My warm regards to your parents.
Best wishes. Yours,
Sad Day As Ghanaians Bid Ebony Reigns Goodbye Forever
Today, March 24, 2018, will go down as one of the saddest days in the life of some Ghanaians, and the Ghana Music Industry.
The late Ebony Reigns will be laid to rest today at the Osu Cemetery after a funeral service to be held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Ghanaians will miss the 20-year-old musician who took the music industry by storm within a spate of two years.
Her hit songs ‘Maame Hw3’, ‘Hustle’, ‘Sponsor’, and the many others are still enjoying massive airplay.
Despite all the controversies that surrounded her short but successful career, Ebony was focused, and never shifted from her career dream. Who would not miss Ebony?
She died painfully on February 8, 2018, on the Sunyani-Kumasi Highway in a gory accident which also claimed the lives of her bodyguard, and personal assitant.
Meanwhile, the bodyguard, Lance Corporal Vondee Francis Atsu, was buried yesterday, March 23, 2018 in Mafi Adidome, in the Volta Region.
Franky Kuri was buried earlier in March.
