NZEMA YOUTH ASSOCIATION

THE PRESIDENT`S  ‘STATEMENT OF AFFAIRS’

Greetings Fellow Nzema Youth Members, We thank God /Allah for how far He has brought us as Nzema Youth Association (NYA) seeking to advocate for the Nzema Youth, Nzemaland and Ghana as a whole.
Nzema Youth Association was created exactly on 7:33pm, Tuesday, 19th April, 2011, by Mr. Emmal Ackah Right Rooney (Founder).

He started by quoting;
‘Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one’.

He cited the purpose as;
‘‘Nzema Youth is an organization set up to help unite the youth of the Nzemaland and help achieve the goals of Nzemaland with one common interest, the betterment of Nzema people, is aint a partisan group nor an individual authoritative group but rather equal and mutual right among it members to achieve it’s common goals’’ (Mr. Emmal Ackah Right Rooney (Founder),.

Egya Awuah also pasted on the wall;
‘hey guys lets invite as many Nzemans as we can to this wonderful page so we can all have the opportunity to air our views concerning our one n only motherland. Cheers’!!
