The Executive Director Madam Janet Edna Nyame in her inaugural speech indicated how Important women empowerment is to the country. She also said the fabric of our existence as Ghanaians can realize perfection if a conscious effort is made to indicate the positive aspect of our culture to the youth to guide them for life. She added that as a country we should constructively nurture the youth to imbibe all the cultural occupations for sustainable livelihood, employment and wealth creation, with the mastery and expertise they can own and control at all times. She also expressed concern for the youth who have been swayed off for far too long by unnecessary and unamusing fantasies from the west and east.
The Executive Director expressed her joy when Asor accepted to be an ambassador for the Commission because over the years she has been undertaking some programmes and projects which seek to promote the Ghanaian culture and values, both in Ghana and abroad.
Miss Georgina Opoku (Asor) in her acceptance speech promised to do more advocacy in schools, churches among other places to ensure the Ghanaian culture is well promoted so that the up and coming youth will learn and appreciate our culture.
