Mr Ganyaglo said the huge youth component of Ghana’s population made them the crucial building blocks in national development.

He said their dynamism, energy and power of vision made the youth obvious propellers of the speedy development that Ghana needed.

“You as youths are expected to come together and mould the nation for a better tomorrow,” Mr Ganyaglo stated.

He expressed regrets that some youth were refusing to make themselves adaptable to present conditions and would seek certain jobs, they probably were not cut for, only for sentimental reasons.

The theme for the seminar was “The Youth-Change Agents for National Transformation”.

Mr Yao Semordey, Regional Director of the National Youth Authority observed that the transition from youthful ages to adulthood in every entity was crucial for the development of that entity.

Madam Fafa Adinyira, Ho Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) observed that the youth needed mindsets that could be tapped for development.

The International Youth Fellowship, under the Good News Mission is a Christian-Based global youth initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to the spiritual, intellectual and emotional growth of young people around the world.

Programmes covered during the ‘Ho Camp Meeting’ included career guidance, leadership, self-control and discipline.

Other activities were Bible seminars, recreation and symposia.

The programme has been run yearly for the past five years, actively supported by South-Korean partners.

The programme was characterized by choral singing with the rendition with a flute, a local religious song by Angela Min Kyung Kim, a teenage Korean and an Accappella performance by a Ghanaian male group, Black Pearl, being the toast of the hordes of young people at the Camp.
