Former President John Dramani Mahama says fixing the country is a collective effort and not just the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him what the youth need most are jobs to empower them and make them not engage in needless ventures.
Youth unemployment has been a problem for governments all over the world but is particularly a problem for governments in Africa. We have twelve million graduates coming out of universities and tertiary institutions all across the African continent yet we are producing six and seven million jobs a year and so what happens to the other five million graduates who cannot find employment.
“It is beginning to show, in Nigeria, they have the SARS movement, it was like a rebellion against police oppression but who are those who took part in the SARS movement? It was the unemployed youth. Let us not think if you are enriching yourselves you are safe. When the youth rise up they think that everybody who is living a good life is one of the people oppressing him that is why he cannot get a job.
“We must not allow that situation to happen in Ghana. “Fix it is not a problem of only NPP, it is a problem of only NPP, it is a problem of Ghana, all of us and so when people in government think that these young people we must demonize them, it is not because of NPP, it is all of us, we have expressed disappointments in our collective leadership.”
