He advised personnel who were not able to participate in the exercise to take active part in subsequent events to make the celebration a success.
Mr Doku-Bello the Metropolitan Coordinator said, it was the vision of the NPP government to create job avenues for the youth in the country and it was therefore necessary to work hard to make the dream of the President a reality.
