The Minister pointed out that youth development is dear to the president's heart taking into cognizance their role in nation building saying, “…Nation building hugely depends on youth development, now we say the present and future belongs to the youth.”

To the Sports chief, assigning Hon Francisca, the youngest MP in Parliament, the chairperson's role was a clear demonstration of confidence the president has in the youth.

And charging them for the task ahead, he said “The Youth Authority Act-939 states they should exhibit tact in discharging their duties. When they do well in Youth in Agriculture, ICT, Construction and Sports etc, it will take care of challenges confronting the youth.

Ghana’s Minister for Youth and Sports, Hon.Isaac Asiamah, has told young Africans to lead development initiatives on the continent.

He said their exposure to technology and digital advancements put them in a better place to undertake activities that promote the development of the Africa.

The Minister, who was speaking at the opening of the 8th  African Union Youth Volunteer Corps being hosted in Accra, said, “African youth have a lot to offer, the continent is yours so make good use of it.”

He added that, “there are many of us who are leaving the continent to Europe, but they forget you can make it here, Africa is rich, we have everything here, you just have to be innovative to reach your goal, stay focus and you will succeed.”

The Chief Executive Officer of the National Youth Authority, Mr.Emmanuel Asigri also charged African leaders to formulate programmes and policies that will develop the capacity of their youth.

He noted that the current crop of leaders on the continent could be said to have failed the youth, adding that they owe it a duty to make the lives of young people better.

“Africa is back to the drawing board because our leaders have failed us, corruption, poverty and disease,’ he noted.’
