On International Youth Day, former President John Mahama celebrated the creativity, enterprise, and passion of Ghana’s youth.

“I want to use this occasion to highlight the importance of our young people as the driving force of positive change and innovation,” Mr. Mahama said in a message.

He noted: “Our youth have been key agents of change and development throughout our nation’s history”, adding: “To ensure a brighter future, we must empower a generation of skilled youth, create decent jobs, and support the youth to transform our country, Africa, and the world”.

He said: “Rising unemployment, increasing cost of living, and lack of opportunities have left many young people feeling hopeless and are testing their sense of patriotism to the limit”.

“For me, John Dramani Mahama, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), we are committed to urgently turning this situation around by paving the way for nurturing a generation of skilled youth”, he said.

The flag bearer of the biggest opposition party, said: “A new NDC administration will work urgently to equip our youth with the entrepreneurial knowledge and skills needed for a sustainable future”.

“We will introduce a 24-hour economy with incentives and tax breaks for manufacturers who will run extra shifts to create more room for employment”, he reiterated an earlier promise.

“We will work to ease the burden of taxes imposed by this NPP administration on Ghanaian businesses and investors, which has robbed Ghana of its envious position as one of Africa’s leading destinations for investment”, he added.

Also, he said the next NDC administration “will maximise the potential of agriculture and agribusiness and provide critical social and IT infrastructure to stimulate economic growth”.
