The CEO of the National Youth Authority, Mr. Emmanuel Sin –Nyet Asigri on Friday 5th January, 2018 met and briefed some selected members of the media fraternity on the Youth Capacity Building program for ECOWAS youth which aims primarily to train and equip young persons from selected ECOWAS countries in technical and vocational skills for sustainable livelihood and to enable them contribute meaningfully to their nation’s socio-economic developmental agenda. 

The ECOWAS Commission promotes integration of cultures and human and social development through sports, training and capacity building, collection and management of database and network administration, collection of information/ data relating to youth associations as well as Information Communication and Telecommunication(ICT) training. All these activities seek to contribute to the community’s youth empowerment and employment initiatives, including the ECOWAS volunteer program. 

The program which has thirty day duration had ten selected youth from across Ghana travelling to Benin and Burkina Faso to acquire skills in electrical wiring, agro processing and auto mechanical engineering. Mr. Asigri was delighted to note that Ghana been reinstated to benefit from the program after years of suspension by ECOWAS due to abuse of the program. 

Ms.Rebecca Ayamba, from the Upper East Region and a spokesperson for the group who is slated to travel to Benin to pursue a program in Agro Processing could not hide her pleasure at the opportunity and expressed appreciation to the current management of the NYA for working tirelessly at getting Ghana restored back in the program. She pledged on behalf of her colleagues to make the very best out of the opportunity whilst also being worthy ambassadors of Ghana in their respective countries of training.

Present at the ceremony included Mr. Evans Nkum and Rev. Frank Lartey Jnr. both directors at the NYA
