The talented young actor, Abraham Attah will be named as the ambassador for government’s ‘Free Senior High School (Free SHS)’ programme.
The ‘Beast of No Nation’ star, will be unveiled at ceremony at the Ministry of Education Conference room in Accra on Thursday.
One of the key pillars of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s campaign during the 2012 and 2016 elections, the Free SHS programme is expected to roll out in the next academic year, September 2017 across the country.
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 materialised.
