The Akans often say; 'sɛ akwadaa hunu ne nsa hohoro a, ɔne mpaninfoɔ na edidi' to wit when a child learns to wash the hands properly, he dines with the elderly.
Indeed, Mr. Sammi Awuku at his youthful age has excelled so well in all fields of endeavour and has successfully managed all portfolios he has held including leading the Governing Board of the Youth Employment Agency to achieve the numerous results we speak of today.
