“Social media, especially TikTok, has rendered most youth idle, as they devote much time there instead of using the time productively. Use your social media profitably; use it to learn new skills and search for valuable information instead of following unnecessary trends online,” he advised.

At the event’s opening ceremony, Deputy Minister of Education and Member of Parliament for Assin South, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, also addressed the youth. He emphasized the importance of fulfilling their obligations to the church and the country. Rev. Ntim Fordjour encouraged the youth to recognize their talents and create opportunities locally rather than believing success is only attainable overseas.

“Create your opportunities and make them lucrative for others to benefit from. No man is talentless,” he stated.
