Former President John Dramani Mahama says the major “plank” of his second coming if elected president again in the 2020 polls is to “deliver jobs to our youth”.
According to Mr Mahama, a future NDC government under his leadership will “harness the enormous innovative and creative talents and also magnify youth participation in the governance and decision-making of our country.”
In a message to celebrate International Youth Day today, Wednesday, 12 August 2020, the flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) noted if elected president, “everything, every policy and every sector will be focused on creating jobs for young people. This is anchored in our US$10billion ‘TheBigPush’ and ‘1millionJobs’ Plans.”
Mr Mahama further congratulated the country’s youth saying “you continue to contribute remarkably towards building our great nation. Your burning entrepreneurial spirit and initiative remains undying even in these difficult times.”
Later today, Mr Mahama’s running mate, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang will join the youth in a virtual conversation to celebrate the day.
