The Millennium Excellence Foundation has honored nine exceptional young people for their selflessness and contribution to youth development for national growth under its president’s office.
Among the honourees was the transformational coach and author, Mr. Scofray Nana Yaw Yeboah, who was recognized in the category for youth mentorship in a lavish ceremony on Sunday night.
Speaking in the sofa interview on the sidelines of the awards ceremony, Mr. Yeboah intimated that it would be grossly deceitful on our leaders’ part to enumerate Africa’s natural resources without putting the youth at the forefront of the drive. “It takes human ingenuity to turn every natural resource into any meaningful product, and in this regard, Africa’s youth need sound and life-changing mentoring,” he added.
Scofray Yeboah serves as the CEO of Zoweh Global Consult, doubles up as the president of Koforidua Secondary Technical School Old Students’ Association and Eastern Konnect high schools from the Eastern Region. He is also the founder of SLIT AFRICA, a non-profit organization in Bloemfontein, South Africa.
Among the dignitaries who graced the awards were H.E Stephanie Sullivan, United States Ambassador, H.E Claudia Torbay, Colombian Ambassador, Hon. Christine Churcher, Board Chair of Ghana Gas Company, former Vice-Chancellor of UPSA and Presidential Candidate, Professor Joshua Alabi, and the Managing Director of the National Investment Bank (NIB).
The maiden edition on youth development is set to address a balance to honor young people who are doing excellently well in their respective endeavors to promote national development. It is deemed a succession strategy to empower the youth to greater heights as other leaders are honored by the foundation.
Since the inception of the Millennium Excellence Foundation in 2000 with His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II as its life patron, the foundation has honored distinguished leaders across the globe, including Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, King Mohammed V, former President John Agyekum Kufuor, H.E. Cyril Ramaphosa, president of South Africa, Tokyo Senrale of South Africa, Tabitha Karania of Kenya, Hanson Sindowe of Zambia, Businessman Tony Elumellu of Nigeria and former Chelsea and Ivory Coast international Didier Drogba.
