The National Youth Authority (NYA) has begun a training to build the capacity of its staff in the Northern Region on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to enable them to efficiently discharge their duties.

The three-week training, which is being held at the Tamale ICT Centre, will see the staff acquire basic skills on Microsoft Office Suite and internet services to apply in their line of work.

Mr Mumuni Sulemana, Northern Regional Director of NYA, who spoke during the training in Tamale, said “ICT is now the driving force of every economy and for us to be more efficient and productive in our work places, we need basic skills in ICT, hence the training.”

Mr Sulemana said similar training programmes would be rolled out in the Savannah and North East Regions to further strengthen the capacity of staff of the NYA to deliver.

Mr Iddrisu Abubakari, Manager, Tamale ICT Centre commended the Management of the NYA for the initiative, saying “We cannot do much today without ICT hence building ones’ capacity on the subject is a great investment.”

Mr Laari Suguru, a staff of NYA said the training would maximise his performance.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
