Adamsu-Drobo, Jaman South.
The assembly member of Adamsu now town electoral area, near Drobo in the Jaman South District of the Bono Region, Mr. Sefa Jones, has called on opinion leaders of the area to discourage irregular migration and bring it to an end in no time.
Mr. Sefa said travelling abroad without proper documents has higher tendency of shortening ones life and causing others to become burden on their families and the nation.
He noted that youth of the country, particularly in the Bono region are mostly found in such danger, and, there is therefore the need for stakeholders in the Region to as soon as possible find means to curtail such journey and guide the young ones to become responsible citizens in future.
The assembly man highlighted that aside government spending huge money that could have been used for developmental projects to save such natives, many were the unlucky individuals who perished on the Mediterranean seas without the knowledge of their families and advised the youth not to dream of such voyage.
This, Mr. Sefa said when speaking in a short discussion after a public education forum on the dangers of irregular migration, how to aquire a genuine passport when wants to travel abroad and how to become equiped for selfemployment, held at the Adamsu old market on Friday night.
The event, organized by the Sunyani Youth Development Association (SYDA) in conjunction with the Initiative Black&White Ghana and Germany was facilitated by the Bono, Bono East and Ahafo Regional Migration Information Center (MIC) of the Ghana Immigration Services.
It was massively participated by close to one thousand residents of the farming community.
