In order for the youth of Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro (BNA) Constituency to achieve their individual aspirations and collectively contribute toward development, a Skills Acquisition Program (SAP) has been launched for the youth.
The NPP parliamentary candidate, Sylvester Tetteh launching the program at Tsokome, Old Bortianor presented sowing machines to the initial trainees and paid for their traineeship.
The trainees were made up of seamstresses and tailors, hairdressers, plumbers, make up artist, POP, welders, mechanics and drivers. The gesture was to tell the people of BNA that his promise of giving skills training to 500 youth yearly, will not be a hoax.
Aside the youth, the parliamentary candidate will also introduce other skills that takes two weeks to three months to learn especially, for persons who are elderly enough and could not stand a long and tortuous training. These cohort of trainees will be taken through detergent making, batik tie and dye, decorations, cake and pastries making etc.
He advised the beneficiaries to take their trainings serious and ensure that they are obedient to their masters and mistresses.
He charged the recipients to put the sewing machines to good use in order to transform lives in their communities.
He also advised the recipients not to keep their skills to themselves, but also train other youth in their various communities, so, the benefits will have a multiplying effect in their community.
He added that he will continue to invest his time and resources toward helping to develop the capacity of his constituents when voted for to represent them in parliament.
Some of the beneficiaries thanked the PC and expressed their sincerest gratitude to him for this wonderful gesture, and I urge all constituents to support him to be put in office to serve them.
