Renowned broadcaster and host of Ghana’s leading morning show “Kokrokoo” at Peace FM, Kwami Sefa Kayi has spurred the youth in Ghana to strive for excellence in life.
Mr. Sefa Kayi advised the youth to "make lemonade out of the lemons life throws at them" in life.
Giving a speech at a joint induction/graduation of Kufour Scholars held at R.S Amegashie Hall, University of Ghana Business School, Kwami Sefa Kayi shared some nuggets of wisdom with the gathering.
He said; “Leadership is everywhere around us…Leadership with integrity is necessary. If we are to see the Ghana and Africa we so desire and love, everything we know starts and ends with leadership.”
He encouraged them to become great achievers and transform the future of Africa stressing “redefining Africa’s future with integrity…will come with pragmatism and hard work”.
He also seized the moment to enlighten the audience about the success journey of former President John Agyekum Kufour, on whom the Kufour Scholars is founded.
The ace broadcaster outlined how Mr. Kufour lived through two coup d'états and his loss of elections to become President of Ghana to when he finally made it to the Presidency, stating Kufour’s success “didn’t come on a silver platter”.
“Take your opportunity today. Don’t procrastinate”, he urged the youth.
“…in spite of your privilege of being a Kufour scholar, success doesn’t come overnight. It never has and it never will. There are times when the pitfalls along the way may force you to give up or despair but remember to keep your eyes on the ball. Persevere; eventually, you will get there. My young friends, be deliberate about life”, he added.
Mr. Sefa Kayi, in his concluding remarks, appealed to the youth to become better versions of themselves.
“Embrace what you have and strive for excellence in every task that you are given”, he emphasized.
