Few days ago, YEN.com.gh reported that child actor Rahim Banda has been appointed as ambassador for FREE SHS.
But the young actor has revealed that he is yet to receive specific descriptions of what his job as an ambassador for the government’s Free Senior High School (SHS) policy entails.
In an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, Rahim said he and his management had not been informed about his duties as ambassador prior to his appointment.
He added that his management is now in touch with the Ministry of Education to know what his roles are.
“My management team and Ministry of Education are now engaging each other to know what their plans are so that I can get my blueprints and start work,” Rahim said.
But some entertainment pundits have lashed out at both management and the Education Ministry for being clueless.
According to the pundits, Rahim’s submission seemingly paints the picture of lack of due diligence on the part of both his management and the Ministry of Education.
It appears the young actor had not been briefed on his specific roles before being made an ambassador and so pundits are wondering if his appointment was made for show or for serious business.
At his appointment, Rahim Banda stated that he personally seeks to bridge the gap between the less privileged and well-to-do students.

He also believes that appointed as an ambassador of the Ghana Job Bank, believes his role as an ambassador for that initiative, will give the opportunity to give back to society.
“If you look at the rate of unemployment and illiteracy in the country, it is really high, we are looking to curb that. We are looking to giving back to society,” he pledged.
Rahim Banda has featured in a couple of movies including ‘The Mask’ and ‘Masters of the Game’ which also featured Majid Michel.
The FREE SHS policy was enrolled by President Akufo Addo as his government’s policy to ensure all children get access to senior high school.
