President Akufo-Addo says his government is determined to improve the skills of Ghanaian youth around the world in order to make them globally competitive.

He said he hopes to see Ghana’s youth at par with their peers anywhere in the world when it comes to science and technology.

The President made the statement during Monday, May 6’s inaugural inter-generational dialogue at the Kempinski Hotel, in Accra.

“The 21st century is both a competitive one and the era of century of science and technology. We must educate and equip our youth with the requisite skills to enable them compete in today’s world,” he said.

Nana Addo said he is happy to have been able to implement the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) Policy

This, he said, would make the acquisition of education easier for all Ghanaians, including the less-privileged ones.

“Today, in Ghana, I am delighted to be able to say that education in the public sector is now free from Kindergarten to Senior High School, with the adoption of my government’s Free Senior High School policy.”

According to him, it is a key priority for my government to invest massively in Ghana’s educational system.

“… we have ensured that a third of our nation’s budget is dedicated to educating our young people,” he stated.

The President further assured that 21 state-of-the-art Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) Centres and 10 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) centres will also be constructed across the country.

This, he said, is aimed at equipping the Ghanaian youth to be able to survive the competitive, technological environment.

“They have to survive. Technology is what helps us to make the world truly a global village, and enables once poor people to become prosperous, and scale up the value of their economic activities,” President Akufo-Addo added.

CHICAGO (AP) — A judge in R. Kelly’s Illinois sexual assault case has refused to give $100,000 in bail money back to a Kelly friend who paid it in February to secure the singer’s release from county jail.

The judge says papers that restauranteur Valencia Love signed clearly indicated she could lose the money.

Love’s lawyer said in court Tuesday that she didn’t know when she paid 10% of a $1 million bond that Kelly would be charged federally and land in federal jail.

John Collins said Love now fears losing all the money as charges against Kelly stack up.

But Judge Lawrence Flood read sections of papers Love signed warning the bond money could be used for Kelly’s legal fees and that she may never see it again.
