Talented young actor, Abraham Attah has been outdoored as the ambassador for government’s ‘Free Senior High School (Free SHS)’ programme.
The occasion to unveil him took place at the Ministry of Education Conference room in Accra on Thursday.
Abraham Attah, who recorded a perfect score of 4.0 grade point average in his first year of schooling in the United States, is expected to help trumpet the Free SHS initiative, a program expected to begin in September this year.
Since gaining international prominence through ‘Beast of No Nation’ starring alongside Idris Elba, the young actor has already distinguished himself by winning several international awards.
He won the ‘Marcello Mastroianni Award’ for ‘Best Male Lead Young Actor’ for his role in the movie.
Last year, there were attempts by the previous Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts to appoint Abraham, who recently featured in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ movie, as a Tourism ambassador. That deal never materialized.
Meanwhile, Education Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh said “We chose him because he is popular and has achieved a lot in what he does,” he noted.
