Founder of Young Profes­sionals and Youth Coali­tion (YPYC), Dr. Andy Osei Okrah, has been adjudged Ghana’s Most Respected CEO in Youth Development at the sixth edition of the Ghana industry CEO awards, 2023 held in Accra.

Dr Okrah, also a philan­thropist emerged winner out of a keenly contested cat­egory thereby confirming a pre-event prediction which was largely credited to his decade long countrywide youth activism.

Organisers of the presti­gious award congratulated Dr. Okrah on his convincing vic­tory saying “an overwhelming majority of voters, in an exit poll, confirmed their confi­dence in the YPYC Founder as a credible individual whose youth-driven organisation could be trusted to champi­on and sustain youth-biased policies and programmes.”

Fellow award winners and competitors in other categories also commended Dr Okrah for his unwavering campaign to promote youth welfare and empowerment.

On his part, Dr Okrah commended organisers for the opportunity and recog­nition, and promised voters who reposed confidence in his leadership style that, “we will not relent in youth advo­cacy and activism.”

He said YPYC will continue to promote gender equality, youth empowerment, em­ployment, leadership and inclusion in the decision-mak­ing process.

Recently, Dr Andy Okrah also received a Transforma­tional Leadership award from the Humanitarian Awards Global (HAG) for his philan­thropic and humanitarian services to humanity espe­cially in youth leadership development.
