Mr Mahama Ayariga, has visited the Youth Leadership Training Institute at Afienya on Wednesday. The Institute which is a former military facility was converted to a Youth Institute by the Kutu Acheampong Government in 1974.
It offers 2-4 year programmes in Dressmaking, Welding and fabrication, Carpentry and Joinery, Poultry rearing, secretarial courses, electrical installation and catering.
The Institute has 177 students.
The Minister, who is barely a month in office as the Youth and Sports Minister, assured students and staff that he would work hard with his colleague to transform the institute into its deserving status.
The Ministry has 11 of such Youth Institutes around the Country.
