A youth Advocacy Assembly held at Apam in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region has descended heavily on a popular Television show, ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ as a major contributory factor to the fall of education in the district.
According to the Advocacy Assembly, the ‘Kumkum Bhagya Show.’ which is aired on Monday to Friday from 7:30pm to 8:30pm on some of the Television Stations was adversely affecting the academic works of students in the area.
The purpose of the Youth Assembly was to bring matters that were affecting the youth, particularly their education to the attention of opinion leaders.
The Assembly was of the view that many basic school pupils and even those at the High Schools have developed high interest in the ‘Kumkum Bhagya’ show at the expense of their studies.
This situation, they said, must be checked by the powers that be to ensure that the movie was not aired at public places in the district or students and pupils were prevented from viewing it.
They appealed to parents to make their wards education a major investment and build upon it so that it could yield an expected profit. The worrying trend of teenage pregnancy in district was another major issue that the assembly session deliberated on.
Using statistical data available from the Gomoa West District Directorate of the Ghana Health Service, the assembly resolved that a war be declared against the menace so that vulnerable young girls could climb the education ladder.
The Public Relations Officer of the Central Regional Coordinating Council, Mr David Allan Pantsil appealed to parents to develop interest in the people assembly and invest their time in it.
He was worried about the situation where many parents fail to patronise the people assembly and, therefore, called on guardians to make the session a priority so that they would be abreast with what was happening to their wards.
