President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reaffirmed government’s decision to the development of the untapped talents within the Zongo communities nationwide.
Delivering his keynote address at the 2018 Eid-Ul-Fitr celebrations held at the Independence Square in Accra today, President Akufo-Addo disclosed that plans are underway to roll out a talent development programme for the Zongo youth.
He asserted that government will put measures in place to create a conducive environment for the Zongo youth to optimize their talents.
“We also aim to roll out a comprehensive programme that develops the talents of our young men and women in the Zongos. We want to deliberately establish the conditions that will allow our young talented Zongo youth to engage and develop their talents”, he disclosed.
According to President Akufo-Addo, sports icons such as Baba Yara, Dogo Moro, Mohammed Polo, Abedi Pele and Abdul Razak are products of Zongo, thus the need to unearth and harness the hidden talents in young men and women in the Zongos.
