The National Secretary of the People’s National Convention (PNC), Benard Monah has called on youth of the three northern regions of Ghana, to demand from government, a greater share of the two hundred Senior High Schools it intends to build across the country. This he said will help cut down the education gap between the south and the north which has left the north lagging behind by at least a hundred years. Mr. Monah was delivering the keynote address at the opening ceremony of the International Youth Network Summit (Ghana Chapter) in Bolgatanga on Monday.
Upper East Regional Coordinator of the National Youth Council, James Daud Aban-Gos advised the youth to desist from political violence and concentrate on their education.
The theme for the International Youth Summit was: “Strengthening and Accelerating Youth Empowerment for Sustainable Development”. It was spearheaded by the Youth Network for Societal Transformation.
Christopher Kevin Asima, President of the Youth Network for Societal Transformation said the aim of the summit was to bring together various youth groups to share ideas and to network.
