The youth have been told to overcome the unbridled craze for money that is corrupting acceptable social conduct.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with anybody making money but that should be done in a more genuine and honest way.
Stealing and cutting corners were not the right things to do.
Okokyeredom Sakyi Ako was delivering this year’s Busia Memorial Lecture in Sunyani.
The program was organized by the Busia Institute for Rural and Democratic Development, a think tank, dedicated to the promotion of good governance and youth empowerment.
“The youth in a free enterprise” was the topic chosen for the memorial lecture.
The Omanhene encouraged the youth to acquire entrepreneurial skills and be bold to set up their own businesses.
They should create their own jobs - move radically away from the over-reliance on the government for employment.
The way forward was to take advantage of the government’s interventions on small and medium enterprises to start their own business.
They should have self-confidence, self-belief and can-do-it spirit.
Okokyeredom Sakyi Ako, a Development Planner and Economist, asked the government to continue making the environment more friendly to entice especially the young people into business.
That was the way to go to rein in the growing unemployment and frustration among the youth.
He added that no effort should be spared to assist the youth to become productive and economically empowered.
Not too long ago, a video surfaced online which got everyone wondering how people could do what was captured on the video without any fear of being invited by the police for questioning.
In the video, a group of young men in a fleet of cars in what looked like a convoy was seen and one who apparently was taking the video was heard saying, "If you can not drink blood" you can't be like us."
