The United States branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Monday, which was a holiday, organised some FUN games for the youth of Manhyia South Constituency.
A football game between the youth of Abbeys Park and Astown boys was used to climax the holiday activities.
Presenting jerseys and medals as well as the glittering trophy to the winning team and the runners up, Obaa Yaa Frimpong, Chairperson of the USA branch of NPP commended the youth wings of her branch and Manhyia-South for hosting the youth to exciting games.
Obaa Yaa disclosed that the USA branch intends to collaborate more with the Manhyia-South YOUTH wing so that it could plan for more activities related to job creation and empowerment for the youth in the communities within the NPP stronghold.
Danny Opoku Antwi, YOUTH Organiser for the NPP USA branch in an interview said it was important that the youth were given opportunity to showcase the talent they have within them.
The football game and other fun games including training workshops and skills development events, he noted have been planned to harness the potentials in the youth of Manhyia South in the coming days.
Henry Badu Kobi, YOUTH organiser for Manhyia-South NPP commended the USA branch of the party for helping to organise the fun games in the constituency.
He noted the wing’s readiness to collaborate more with the branch to train and empower the youth in the communities in Manhyia-South so that each can become employable and useful for the area.
The Consular General of Ghana 🇬🇭 in New York, Ambassador Atta Boafo addressing the youth at the games urged them to avail themselves to opportunities including skills training that would be presented to them at the constituency.
By that, he noted that they would be adding some premium to themselves and also stand in a good position to secure jobs to better their lives.
Present at the games were some branch executives of the USA NPP and Canada who had travelled to participate in Saturday’s National conference of the party.
Also making appearance at the games were Kwabena Ampofo Appiah (Vyrus), MD for the State Housing Company Limited, Richard Gyamfi from the Scholarship Secretariat, Raphael Patrick Sarfo, Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser and many others including Kwadwo Poku ‘Mehalla”, a former Kotoko Player and resident of Ashtown.
