Peeps impressed with his talent
Jojoephraim Ephraim shared:
Great talent that must be developed.
Quincy Quaye said:
A good seed planted in bad soil struggles to grow. Clearly, he is gifted, but this society we live in will not nurture him. His gift was for the benefit of the entire nation. Elon Musk and co are not better than him because of poor nurturing. We may sit down and let his gift go dormant.
Tony Tony posted:
I think most Ghanaian schools should be made technical by looking at the unemployment rate after graduation from the university. This is pure talent with a little help he can become a blessing to GH.
Hanselm Kellwood said:
Government should create a special school for talented or gifted people like this.
Daniel Teye Huago reacted:
You see this pure talent when he goes to school, or university they will worry him with communication skills and African studies saaaa.
Hayford Annor said:
This guy needs an engineering school and mentor. A great asset for Ghana.

Great talent. I pray the parents don't force him to go and read medicine.
Amponsah Kwaku commented:
Going forward in education he will be told to label a grasshopper and find "x" which has never been lost. Dream-killing education system in Ghana.
Bright Ophori Quache Wood shared:
The boy is very talented. It’s high time our leaders invested in talent so as to push up the youth for a technological and better Ghana we all aspire to see.
Emmanuel Fordjour reacted:
These boys need to be encouraged to do more and better, there is a lot in the system, but who is going to organise them?
Kofi Nyarko commented:
We have good youth that can do alot for the country, but our leaders are not helping them.
Panford Khalifa said:
I hope his talent and skill won't fade away by the system we're in.
Daniel Augustine commented:
Please, Mr. Present of Ghana help this talent boy and developed him.
