Member of Parliament for Banda in the Brong Ahafo region has bemoaned the division among members of Parliamen in the region, calling for unity to train the youth in entrepeneurship in order to reduce the incidence of immigration within the youth in the region.

 Mr Ahmed Ibrahim made this revelation after receiving the award for the young politician of the year at the Brong Ahafo Young Achievers Awards for his exemplary leadership organised by Kingdom Management in partnership with the regional office of the National Youth Authority and International Organisation of migration under the theme 'Curbing the problem of illegal migration in the Brong Ahafo region'.

 "We the parliamentarians from this region have to unite irrespective of our political divide to help enlighten our youth, right from the Senior High School on how to make it in the country through entrepreneurship and career development seminars to sustain their interest in working here and investing in our economy. This should be our priority rather than unnecessary bickering and power struggle" he noted .

 Mr. Ibrahim, who is also a farmer and a publisher noted that "politics and migration" is not the solution to unemployment, adding that the influx of foreign nationals into the country is a strong indication that there is a potential for wealth creation in the country.

 "In recent years we have seen a rise in foreign nationals trooping into our country to ply trade or invest in our economy. It presupposes that we can also make it as citizens. Leat us gear up and start up something and we can reap such dividends rather than embarking on this deadly voyages" the youth activist indicated.
