Akatsi Apparel Manufacturers Association Graduates Receive Support
Mr. William Kpormatsi, former Parliamentary Candidate for South Akatsi in the National Democratic Congress, says he is ready to motivate and appreciate the young people, who are learning skills to enable them to become self-reliant.
“In my opinion, our children, siblings continue to shun career and skill learning and so the few who commit to it and graduate should be appreciated.”
He said that God had given some of them excellent customer support services, others the organization of resources and others the best design skills and urged them to form partnerships for the desired growth.
Mr. Kpormatsi said this during the graduation ceremony of 50 apprentices from the National Garment Manufacturers Association of Ghana at Akatsi in the Volta region.
He urged graduates to consider forming partnerships of two or three to allow them to pool their talents and resources to create and start their businesses.
“I take this opportunity to urge all young people to accept the fact that where Ghana has arrived now, university degrees should only be considered after vocational training. We can fund academics with our own work,” did he declare.
Mr. Kpormatsi challenged the young men to get training in the construction industry.
This, he said, should be an incentive for young people themselves not to give up industry skills to outsiders.
Mr. Mathias Agbalenyo, President of the Association, on behalf of the other executives, thanked Mr. Kpormatsi for his support.
This was the Association’s 61st graduation ceremony, which was held at Akatsi’s main bus station.
Donations were received from dignitaries who were present at the event.
