The National Youth Council (NYC) on Tuesday lamented the development of Ghanaian youth as individuals instead of being part of the society.
Alhaji Adam Mahama, Vice Chairperson of the Board of Governors of NYC, who made the observation, noted that most parents did not spend enough time with their children at home. “These children are sent to school, where without adequate adult supervision, they engaged in all kinds of vices such as stealing, lesbianism and homosexuality.“The youth are being developed to see themselves as individuals rather than as part of the society. They are not given the necessary guidance to become responsible adults to contribute to national development,” he said.
Alhaji Mahama was inaugurating a three-member Interim Management Committee (IMC) for the NYC in Accra,The Committee members are The Reverend Calvin S. Abgotse, a member of the NYC Board and Chairman, Mr Simon Amanor Sackey, representative of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) and Mr Kofi Ocran, a Lecturer, Public Services School at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
The IMC would run the affairs of the NYC from February 1, 2011 for three months, after which their mandate may be renewed upon recommendation from the Board.It would be responsible for the administration, assessing efficiency of the council’s operations and identifying challenges that affect its efficient performance.
Alhaji Mahama said the IMC was established to revamp the NYC to coordinate and develop the youth in the country.The Rev. Agbotse pledged the commitment of the IMC to work assiduously to realise the vision of the NYC.
He said they would institute measures to revamp the council, provide logistics for regional and district Youth Coordinators to work efficiently and effectively. “The staff should gird their loins for the task ahead,” he added.
