The Wa East District Chief Executive, Dr. Mahama Sulaiman Kandia Ewurah, has been working hard to promote sustainable development in the district, with a particular focus on addressing youth unemployment and illegal mining.
Recently, Dr. Ewurah secured 22 job slots for constituents through the Ghana Education Services. He acknowledged that youth employment is a major challenge in the district and is doing everything possible to get young people engaged in decent jobs.

Through his leadership, the district is moving towards a brighter future with more opportunities for its young people and a more sustainable approach to resource management.
