The mayor of Kumasi has underscored the need for discipline and its role in national development. Hon. Samuel Sarpong, who was speaking at the inauguration of the NDC students’ wing-TEIN at the Komfo Anokye Nurses Training Centre last Sunday, urged the youth of the country to remain disciplined so as to encourage their personal development as well as that of the nation.

“Indeed, there can be no sound development without discipline”, he opined. On achievements of the NDC, he said the development projects undertaken by the party in the past two years are phenomenal; with the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly alone undertaking about one hundred and twenty projects.

Hon Kobby Onasis, the Ashanti regional Coordinator of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP), for his part highlighted the NDC’s hard work in sustaining the programme.

According to him, the NPP handed down a programme which was largely unsustainable, having realized that they had dealt the youth of Ghana a raw deal. “Thanks to the NDC’s commitment to the youth of this country, eleven out of the nineteen modules of the NYEP are currently in operation in the Ashanti region compared to the six left by the NPP”, he said.

He however acknowledged that there were indeed a few difficulties regarding allowances of beneficiaries, and added that it is being rectified.

Mr. Kofi Kukubor, who was chairman of the occasion, encouraged the new leadership to eschew pettiness and rise above mediocrity so they could work hard to increase the existing membership of the Network among other functions.

Mumuni Believer Likpalimor, the President for the new TEIN branch was full of gratitude and called for unity in the party towards the 2012 elections to enable the government fulfill the “Better Ghana Agenda”.
The programme, which was under the theme “The Realization of The Better Ghana Agenda through Professional Health Delivery”, witnessed the attendance of many NDC dignitaries within the region as well as Nursing Trainees and other student groups within the region.
