Issues Affecting Our Youth Must Be Properly Diagnosed And Put In Its Proper Context-Ag. CEO Of NYA

The Acting CEO of National Youth Authority, Chief Nelson Owusu Ansah has also put in his voice into the current issues affecting the Ghanaian youth.

According to Chief Nelson the youth are always perceived as the rubble rousers, deviant in society and so on. We may be right or not! What we have failed to do is to properly diagnose the issues confronting young people in this contemporary times and even identify the issues of vulnerabilities; they are constantly being exposed to dangerous crimes at home, school environment, their local communities by friends, families, peers and to some extent the elderly.

We need to begin a serious discourse on youth vulnerabilities and the impact it is creating in our society.

Chief Nelson, It is sad and disheartening the event that occurred at Kasoa over the weekend.

In conclusion he said “My heart goes to the affected families. Sad period for the country”
