The General Secretary of the Industrial and Commercial workers Union (ICU), Solomon Stephen Ashalley Kotei, has observed that a healthy workforce would help increase productivity for wealth creation in the country.
He, therefore, stressed the need to nurture and groom the younger ones to take up the mantle of leadership in the near future.
Mr. Kotei said this at a maiden national youth health walk of the ICU in Takoradi on the theme, ‘let’s walk for life: Healthy Youth Builds Strong unions’.
The theme, according to him, was to underscore the fact that the youth were the future of the country and every support should be given them to contribute to nation building.
He said the youth in ICU were very important for the union’s growth and development, and therefore, should stay healthy to develop and build the union to become stronger.
He said it was for that reason that eh health walk was organized as part of a process towards building a strong union.
Mr. Kotei said the union would organize and retain its members, enforce discipline, and galvanize them for increased productivity.
The ICU General Secretary emphasized the need to maintain a healthy workforce for any successful activity notwithstanding the age, as a sound mind could only be found in a healthy body.
“As workers, we need sound minds to concentrate and be productive at the workplaces and this can only be achieved in healthy bodies for increased productivity,” he noted.
