The President of Ghana Legal Advocacy Foundation, Mr Morrison Ampaw has urged the youth not to allow themselves to be misled by the propaganda and lies of politicians.

Mr Ampaw a legal practitioner and a native of Nyakrom made the call, while he was sharing his experiences in life with the youth of the town at a forum organized by Covenant Ministries Fellowship in collaboration with Nyakrom Youth for change and development.

The programme dubbed Wisdom Party gave opinion leaders, chiefs, ministers of the Gospel in the town to sensitize the youth on the need to lead lives worthy of emulation.

According to Mr Ampaw the youth constitute the majority of the future work force of the nation and that they have to be knowledgeable and skillful to contribute positively towards the development of the country.

He said in this regard it was about time for the youth to disassociate themselves from reckless ways such as drugs abuse, alcoholism, premarital sex, advanced fee fraud also known as Sakawa among others.

Mr Seth Wemegah Williams President of In Covenant Ministry Fellowship said the youth needed proper counseling and sensitization that would not help them become patriotic to the country.

Mr Abeaku Kingsley, a staff of UTV and a native of the town advised the youth to concentrate on their education, since it was with knowledge that they could effectively contribute their quota towards development.

Nana Yaw Edu, an opinion leader of Agona Nyakrom Traditional Council who chaired the programme commended the organisers for taking the plight of the youth in the area at heart.

He urged participants of the programme to use the knowledge they had acquired to sensitized their friends on the need for all to change their attitudes for the better. GNA
