He called on other developmental partners such as the District Assembly, NGOs and financial institutions to get on board to support youth- focused activities especially the entrepreneurial drive of the youth in the area.

Mr. Chris Essilfie and Mr. Percy Amoo Yankey, both of whom are business advisory experts and Executive Directors of IBS Consulting Alliance, urged the youth to begin to break the cycle of overdependence on government for employment by nurturing entrepreneurial ideas and applying them to the many business opportunities in the area.
