Minister for Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour Awuah has urged Ghanaians to eschew partisanship in their everyday endeavours to make the country a better place.
According to him, politics is about ideas not about fighting each other in the name of partisanship.
He made the call in an interaction with the Amangoase Parliament Youth Club from Nsoatre in the Brong Ahafo region when the latter paid a courtesy call on him in Parliament House to present a citation to him.
The citation was in recognition of the Minister’s numerous development initiatives especially a water project that has brought relief to Nsoatre and surrounding communities.
The group used the opportunity to appeal to Minister to support them in the establishment of a modern gari processing factory in the area for jobs.
The Sunyani West MP thanked the group for the gesture and asked for their prayer support.
He urged the youth to brighten the corner in which they found themselves as they prepare themselves for greater responsibilities whiles urging them also to pray for a better Ghana.
“Pray for Ghana to succeed in all spheres for jobs to prevail so that we would all become comfortable” he said.
The Minister observed that the Brong Ahafo region holds a lot for the nation in terms of food, timber, cocoa among others.
He challenged the Amangoase Parliament Youth Club to influence decision at the local level to help promote education delivery in the region.
Dr Kwabena Donkor, MP for Pru who witnessed the event praised the humility and unifying attributes of Ignatius Baffour Awuah especially during the period he served as the Brong Ahafo regional Minister under former President Kufour.
According to him, it is God who ordains Kings hence it is time to put aside partisanship for development to thrive after elections.
Public Relations Officer of the group, Alexander Adomah said the Club is aimed at initiating development activities for self growth of members and community development.
Membership of the group which is one year old is open to young persons who are 18 years and above.
