CONCERNED YOUTH COMMEND HONOURABLE YUSSIF JAJAH
The Concerned Youth of North Ayawaso (CYNA) write to commend the office of the Member of Parliament (MP) for North Ayawaso Constituency; Hon. Yussif Jajah for successfully organizing a maiden stakeholder consultation forum for the momobi west and east electoral area the constituency. The event took place at the Chief Moro Baba Issah Community Center at Kawo kudi on Monday, 31st July, 2017
We regard the said initiative as a campaign promise well fulfilled. It leaves us with more hope for our noble constituency
Being the first of its kind, the initiative created a fantastic platform for various stakeholders including, the youth, health administrators, chiefs, GPRTU, Educationists and Corporate bodies to deliberate on matters that are pressing to the development of the community as well as propose a collective way of solving the identified problems
Discussion centered around cardinal points as; education, health, sanitation, security as well as advocating for a municipal assembly status for the constituency
Our outfit has duly documented the numerous concerns raised and suggestions. We stand resolute in making necessary follow ups and cooperating with other stakeholders to ensure that, the engagement becomes neither a waste of precious time nor resources
We wish to acknowledge the honourable member for keeping to the time assigned. It is no secret that the Honorable member was among the first 3 participants to reach the venue at 8:45am to wait for other participants whose lateness led to the start of the engagement at 10:30am instead of the slated 9:30am. This only affirms the MP's commitment and focus to his responsibilities as a humble and loyal son of our constituency.
However,morals demands we identify shortfalls in the said engagement, in order to create enabling ground for improvement. In this tangent, we find it quite unfortunate for the letter of invitation to delay in reaching us. We are intrigued to receive the invitation letter on 29th July 2017 from it's addressed date of 25th July, 2017. Our checks indicate, we are not the only victims of the flaw. Others were reported to have received theirs at worst time than ours.
We also wish to propose an increase in the scope of stakeholder involvement to include but not limited to market women, private and public school representatives and corporate bodies.
In as much as we feel highly disappointed and offended in the number of stakeholders who showed up for the event late, We still wish to extend a heartfelt comradeship to all stakeholders who participated in the forum. Apparently, invitation letters got to us late yet we graced the occasion in our numbers. We are optimistic that, with more commitment and dedication to such cause, we will put our noble constituency on a greater pedestal
We look forward to more of such engagement, knowing that coming together is only the beginning, keeping together is the progress, and working together will eventually lead to desired sustenance and development of our beloved constituency and Ghana at large
God Bless Us
God Bless North Ayawaso!
