So obviously, in the event that you can set up things, we would insist the conviction arrangement of our youngsters in this country, and they will contribute their standard. There are things that are going on that show that we don’t have a public plan that the kids have a comprehension of.

So they feel that the vast majority of the things are finished by their own directs. Be that as it may, we ought to plainly illuminate the public plan. When we can do that, youngsters will drive that plan.

We need to give them that confirmation,” Mr. Appiah said.
