Renowned playwright Ebo Whyte encouraged the young men and women to emulate the attributes of former President John Kufuor, in whose name the foundation was set up.

Mr Kufuor transformed politics in Ghana by showing how a politician can show genuine love to people of all walks of life and respect humanity,” he said.

Accumulate knowledge, stand out by being unique. There must be something special about you. Have faith and believe that the impossible is possible. You must be unstoppable such that nothing can keep you down. Discover your calling and obey it. Finally respect yourself so that others will respect you,” Mr Whyte added.
