Akuse Youth Angry


Some youth of Akuse in the Eastern Region have bemoaned the lack of developmental projects and activities in the community over the years.

According to the youth, the town has remained the same for years with no improvements or any sign that the town will see any major development projects anytime soon.
They also complained that the entire community still lacks basic social amenities after.

In an interview with Samuel Amanor the organizer  for the Akuse Youth For Development Association, he expressed worry about the kind of future that lies ahead of the children of Akuse.

“Am really concerned and worried about the lack of developmental projects in Akuse- I was born and bred here, i have not seen any major infrastructural development in this town. The situation has even moved from bad to worse” he said.

He also expressed his concerns about the ineffectiveness of the various public institutions and the deplorable state of  government  buildings and institutions in the Akuse.

“All our public buildings are in a state of collapse, our post office is in ruins, there are no sheds at the market, our roads are in deplorable states and children in our public schools are forced to learn in dilapidated structures. As youth we are concerned about the state of our town,” he added.

Samuel Amanor then made a passionate appeal to the government to as a matter of urgency come to their aid.
“We have a good number of young people who are unemployed in Akuse. Most of them have completed tertiary education with  degrees, HND and diploma. Yet  most of them have been unemployed for over six{ 6} years- We want the government to come to our aid” He pleaded.

“On behalf of youth in Akuse, I want to make a passionate appeal to the government and the Municipal Assembly to provide the town with  roads,  good market structures and safe school buildings for the children and teachers to make teaching and learning effective.’ Mr. Amanor continued .
