The Member of Parliament for Bia East, Mr Richard Acheampong, has admonished his constituents to work hard this year in order to be productive.
The MP speaking at a party organized for his constituents said life would only be difficult for those who are lazy and have refused to work.
Mr Acheampong indicated that although there are challenges and economic difficulties, the youth must endeavor to work hard in order to raise enough money to cater for their families.
He also used the occasion to caution against the abuse of hard drugs and tramadol.
He said, abuse of such drugs deprive users of their productive life, make them a nuisance to society hence the need for them to desist from such acts and rather dedicate their productive life to working hard.
