Accra – The 10th Annual Chief Justice’s Mentoring Programme has ended in Accra with a call on students to take up opportunities offered them to nurture their dreams and become responsible citizens.

The Chief Justice, Mrs Georgina T. Wood, also urged students to learn how to build on good values to mould their lives.

The two day 10th Annual Chief Justice Mentoring Programme on the theme Mobilising for Ghana’s Future- the Rights, Duties and Obligation of a Responsible Youth, attracted over 200 people drawn from 17 Senior High Schools in the Greater Accra, Eastern, Central and Upper East Regions.

Some female porters (Kayayie) in Accra also took part in the Mentoring programme. Participating students had the opportunity to visit Parliaments, interact with members of the bench and bar and took part in Career Counselling Sessions.

Mrs Wood was optimistic that the programme had empowered participants and helped them to understand how justice was dispensed in the country.

According to her the programme was also going to help students to select appropriate professions they would be pursuing in future.

She expressed her gratitude to all stakeholders who had supported her for the past 10 years.

The Chief Justice presented certificates to the participating schools.

Reverend Joyce Aryee, former Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Chamber of Mines urged the students to strive to build on good values in life.
