Mr Asante called on parents to give their children the necessary support to enable them to develop their talents, since every child had a talent and would take the support of their parents to develop them.

He said children were gift from God and that it was necessary to nurture them through the word of God to grow and take up responsible positions and advised the children to be respectful and take their education seriously.
