Peace Ambassador and winner of Talented Kids Season 10, Dramani Sam, will soon assume an ambassadorial role at the Ministry of Education to champion a campaign to help send school dropouts back to the classroom.
The Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, made the revelation on Wednesday when the little girl paid a courtesy call on him to discuss matters relating to child education and to also present her awards to him.
Dr Opoku Prempeh said talks are ongoing to initiate projects and programmes to ensure that children who had dropped out from school are back to pursue their education.
“We have a project coming up and it’s about bringing children out from school back to school … we’ll make you the ambassador for that project as soon as we are ready to implement it,” he said.
The Minister lauded her for her efforts, including the advices she has been giving her peers through her numerous poems, and urged her to live an exemplary life for her peers to emulate.
Dr Opoku Prempeh assured her that the government, through his ministry, will support her education just as many other children.
“I wish all kids at your age could speak as you are. I encourage you to keep it up; you’re an asset to this country and we’re proud of you,” he added.
He urged the young talented poet to stick to her values and remain resolute on utilizing her God-given talent.
Taking her turn, Miss Nakeeyat said she would use her talent to preach peace, especially with the December 7 polls approaching.
“As a young peace ambassador, the responsibility lies on me to preach peace as our beloved country goes to the polls on December 7 to elect our President and Members of Parliament,” she said.
She urged students to stay off politics and the use of abusive language on leaders.
Miss Nakeeyat said children are future leaders and therefore must be given the necessary support to champion transformation in their careers in preparation for the leadership role ahead.
She also encouraged her peers to study hard and pass their examinations than engaging in exams malpractice.
“As children and tomorrow’s leaders, we need a peaceful election, an election devoid of tribalism and ethnicity. This can disturb our peace in the country. It should not be allowed to ruin this country; let us all do our part to ensure peaceful election,” she said.
