New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate hopeful for Ablekuma Central constituency in the Greater Accra region, Mr. Collins Amoah, has called on the youth to avail themselves of skills training being offered by state agencies, private organisations, and individuals.
According to him, youth skills training and empowerment are the panacea to high youth unemployment.
The NPP Parliamentary hopeful for Ablekuma Central Constituency made these remarks when addressing the gathering at a day’s Youth Job fair held at Loso Park inside Sukura, a suburb in Accra.
Mr. Amoah explained that his youth skills and empowerment program concept is aimed at creating a healthier and higher quality of life for the teeming unemployed and underemployed youth in the Ablekuma Central constituency.
“The reason for this initiative is for poverty eradication, crime prevention, improved standards of education, financial independence, and to create a sense of responsibility.
When the youths are empowered, which comes with so many job opportunities, it helps improve their livelihood and that of their immediate families, which will go a long way to enhance the economic fortunes of the country,” Mr. Amoah reiterated.
According to him, youth skills training and job creation is one of his greatest visions for the constituency, and he would make sure every person within the working age gets the opportunities to work and earn some income, especially when he is considered and voted for to become the Member of Parliament for Ablekuma Central constituency come 2024 general elections.
Mr. Collins Amoah used the opportunity to reward some aged, physically challenged, and past NPP constituency executives with brand new tabletop fridges for their sacrifices and hard work.
