He also expressed sincere thanks to God for his protection throughout his stay and study in Tlemcen-Algeria as well as his parents, friends and classmates.
“There is greater opportunity for this generation especially the youth. It is imperative for the youth to tap into the numerous opportunities out there so as to be able to design and shape a better future for themselves and respective country’s” Sarkodie lamented when quizzed on his advice to the youth.
