In celebrating International Youth Day, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang and I send our congratulations to the youth of Ghana— You continue to contribute remarkably towards building our great nation.
Your burning entrepreneurial spirit and initiative are exemplary even in these difficult times.
We shall harness the enormous innovative & creative talents and also magnify youth participation in the governance and decision-making of our country.
The major plank of my second coming as President is to deliver jobs to our youth. If we do not do this urgently, we have a time bomb ticking away.
Everything, every policy, and every sector will be focused on creating jobs for young people. This is anchored in our US$10bn #TheBigPush and #1millionJobs Plans.
Later today, Prof. Opoku-Agyemang will join the youth of Ghana in a conversation to celebrate the day.
I invite you to join the conversation and build Ghana together!
