Sefwi Bonzain chief urges youth to participate in political affairs

Nana Ofori Ahenkan II, the Chief of Sefwi Bonzain and Krontihene of Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Council has called on the youth of the Western North Region to actively participate in political activities to foster accelerated development in the area.

His impassioned appeal came during the launch of the Western North Youth Development Association at Wiawso College of Education.

Nana Ofori Ahenkan II emphasized the crucial role the region’s youth can play in shaping the political landscape to prioritize the development of the Western North.

He stressed the need for active involvement to ensure that the concerns and aspirations of the youth are considered in the decision-making processes.

In addition to his call for political engagement, Nana Ofori Ahenkan II highlighted the importance of preserving the region’s cultural heritage.

He advocated for the inclusion of the Sefwi dialect in the educational curriculum, citing its significance in maintaining and promoting the unique identity of the Western North region.

Samuel Nimako Kesseh, the Regional Chairman for the Western North Youth Development, clarified that the association is non-political. He urged political parties, regardless of their affiliation, to prioritize the welfare of the Western North youth in their policies and governance.

He emphasized the need for concerted efforts to elevate the Western North to the development levels seen in other regions of Ghana.

Furthermore, Samuel Nimako Kesseh disclosed ongoing discussions with representatives from the Creative Arts and Vocational Sectors to collaborate in providing opportunities for the youth.  

He said this collaborative effort aims to tackle unemployment and promote skill development, ensuring that the lack of employment does not hinder the region’s progress. He also announced plans to create scholarships for those aspiring to pursue education.

On her part, Mrs. Jennifer Wirenko, the Women’s Commissioner of the association echoed their commitment to supporting underprivileged women, particularly those lacking adequate care.

She unveiled plans to address a critical need for female hygiene by initiating the production of sanitary pads for girls in the region which the initiative aims to enhance the well-being of young girls and contribute to their overall development.
