The youth should be disciplined, well focuses, committed to duty and exhibit high sense of patriotism at all times, he told the Ghana news agency in Kumasi.
The Rev. Dr. Effah Ababio said Osagyefo Dr. Nkrumah defied the odds and the challenges of the time to lead the struggle for Ghana’s political independence.
What is left is for the present generation of the youth to carry on from where the founding fathers left off for the achievements of the goal of economic self-sufficiency, he said.
The Rev. Dr. Effah Ababio appealed to the government to continue with development projects and programmes instituted by dr. Nkrumah .
This he said, was crucial to bringing down the high levels of poverty, unemployment and illiteracy.
