More than half of the country's population are under 25 years old. But a youth policy to address development needs of a chunk of this demographic is out-dated and over-run by technology and dramatic social changes.

The need for a review informed a dialogue last Thursday organised by the Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES)-Ghana at the British Council Hall in Accra.

It was there that the Deputy National Youth Authority CEO Bright Acheampong revealed, it is a 2018 priority to re-look-, re-examine and re-write the National Youth Policy designed in 2010.

The leadership of the Fulani Community in Ghana has called for compensation for some of their compatriots who they claim have lost more than 1500 cattle.

The group has estimated the cattle which were caught in the line of fire since December last year to be about GH¢6 million. Sheikh Osuman Bari made the claim on behalf of the group at a press conference in Accra, Friday.

He called on President Akufo-Addo to halt, with immediate effect what he described as ongoing hostilities against the ethnic group.

Four persons including a storekeeper at the Kumasi Academy SHS (KUMACA) have been arrested by the Asokore Mampong police over missing weapons in the school.

Two short guns and a pump action gun owned by the school were reported missing last Friday.
