The District Director advised the participants to channel their youthful exuberance and energies into useful ventures by exploring opportunities to improve on their socio-economic situation.

He also reminded them to cherish their cultural heritage and resist foreign cultures that tend to value violence and indecency.

Naaba Abdulai Haka Dunia and Naa Santa Franklin, Heads of Frafra and Dagaaba communities in Kumasi, respectively, took turns to counsel the youth not to engage in criminal activities.

They asked them to work hard and lead decent and peaceful lives.

Mr Joseph Atindaana Baba, a member of the Planning Committee, said the programme was to help promote and strengthen the ancestral bond between the two two ethnic groups from the northern parts of the country.
