President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has congratulated the National Youth Organiser of his party, Sammi Awuku, for a recently received continental award. The national executive of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was named 2017 Continental Youth Icon by the All Africa Students Union (AASU). A citation read in his honour said the award “serves as an acknowledgement of your consistent advocacy for your students and youth right; and your direct engagements of young people across Africa. Your continuous guidance and mentorship of many students and young people across Africa has not gone unnoticed by AASU”. Taking to his Twitter page on Sunday, President Akufo-Addo said Mr Awuku is “an inspiration to the millions of youth in Ghana and on the continent”.
