Listen to article

Winneba (C/R), April 13, GNA - Mr. Paul L.K. Djan, the Central Regional officer for the National Population Council, asked district assemblies to play a vital role in solving adolescent sexual reproductive health problems.

Speaking at a three-day workshop at Winneba on Wednesday, Mr Djan said unless assemblies collaborated their efforts with other key institutions to solve such problems affecting the youth, the nation could not move forward.

Mr Djan said the youth were facing a lot of challenges suggesting that much needed to be done to assist them to develop. He advised the youth to be disciplined, hard working and to acquire knowledge in modern information technology to facilitate their activities.

Mr Djan advised women, especially those in tertiary institutions to refrain from obscenity adding that many of them dressed provocatively. He, therefore, appealed to District Chief Executives, Members of Parliament and opinion leaders to support government in fighting indiscipline and solving sexual reproductive health problems affecting the youth.
