He said the Government would continue to invest in the people especially the youth to prepare them adequately for leadership roles in future.

Mr Asubonteng pointed out that the distribution of free school uniforms for pupils in deprived communities, free exercise books and increase in the capitation grant showed the Government’s commitment to invest in the youth.
