Lt.Col. Anum said the club would continue to nurture the character of young men and women to produce a generation of true responsible Christian men and women consecrated for the work of God and spearhead growth and development.
The National President of Boys Brigade (BB) Ghana, Mr Moses Fob-Amoaning Esq. lamented that young people in the twin-city of Sekondi-Takoradi were being lured into LGBTQ plus which required the intervention of religious clubs such as Boys Brigade and Girls Brigade to effect changes in the lives of the youth.
He stressed the need to encourage patrons of the club to donate generously to the club in a bid to cater for young boys and girls.
The Paramount Chief of Mpohor Traditional Area, Osabarima Kow advised incoming executives to be available for themselves and advance the cause of humanity to promote the Boys Brigade and Girls Brigade to stand the test of time.
