Opoku was invited as a panelist at the First Annual Africa Dyslexia Dialogue, held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Lagos, Nigeria.

The dialogue was organised by Dyslexia Nigeria under the theme: "Unmasking Dyslexia," and it was aimed at raising awareness about Dyslexia and calling on national governments to prioritise the implementation of inclusive education.


Speaking at the event, Mr. Opoku said children with Dyslexia faced multiple forms of educational barriers which hinder them from reaching acceptable levels of educational attainment.
