Mr Emmanuel Asempa, a health education volunteer, on Friday asked journalist to reinvigorate their bodies to avoid stress-related illnesses.

Mr Anthony Bells Kafui Kanyi, GJA Volta Regional Secretary, gave a brief report on the group for 2012, and congratulated his colleagues for working assiduously.
Mr Victor Kwawukume, GJA Volta Regional Chairman, paid tribute to the late Henry Ford Kamel, Volta Regional Minister, who died on Tuesday, Christmas Day, saying the late Kamel had good relationship with the media, and contributed to the development of the region.
