The First Vice Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern Region, Alhaji Iddrisu Sunday has observed the need for politicians and other well to do persons in the region to consider youth empowerment as an effective tool for the development of the area.
He said if northerners in influential positions, were to support the youth in the areas of education, business development and vocational and skills training ventures, the development gap between the south and north would have been bridged quickly.
