THE Deputy Minister-nominee for Energy, Dr. Mohammed Amin Adam, has cautioned students against rushing into politics without first building a solid career in their various fields of study.
Dr. Amin made the suggestion at Legon over the weekend at a seminar organised by the University of Ghana branch of Dagbon Students Union (DASA) on the theme, ‘Future of Dagbon Youth: the Role of Elites in Promoting Education’.
According to him, the desire to join politics and consider it as their only source of survival could ruin their future, especially if they are unable to make inroads in the political arena.
Prince Imoro Andani, a former Northern Regional Minister, on his part, encouraged the students to organise such for a on regular basis and cautioned them not to allow the chieftaincy divisions to work against their unity and growth.
The Governor of Bank of Ghana, Dr. Nashiru Issahaku, thanked the students and their lecturers for organising the seminar and called on them to distinguish themselves in their various academic pursuits, so that, together, they can all work to restore Dagbon back to its glory days and to launch a sustainable fight on the myriad of developmental challenges confronting the area.
“Please take your studies seriously and be disciplined at all times so that we can work together to bring Dagbon back to its glory days and to confront the challenges affecting the development of the area’’
Dr. Abdulai Mahmoud called on the intelligentsia to be a source of inspiration to the students and the youth in general.
The event attracted some chiefs from Dagbon, including the Nyankpalana. Also in attendance were the Managing Director of Sovereign Bank, Mr. Iddrisu Somed, and Dr. Osman Abdulai.
