Private legal practitioner and host of Mmra Ne Abrabo Mu Nsem show on Wontumi TV, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has argued that Ghana's development has retarded because the elderly have usurped the roles of the youth. According to him, the engine of growth lies in the human capital of a country, which mainly rests with the youthful population.
On his show on Sunday, Lawyer Ampaw lamented that Ghana like many other countries are struggling because the youth are denied their functions as predestined. He indicated that the holy scriptures confers unique responsibilities to the elderly and the youth population, adding that there shouldn't be any conflict in ensuring that each works accordingly to support the development of the nation.
He explained that the elderly are bound to dream while the youth with their strength implement the dreams [vision] as told by the elderly. Lawyer Ampaw indicated that like President Nana Akufo-Addo, the elderly in leadership position are responsible to present a vision so the youth could lead the change by implementing.
He cried that the case in Ghana has been very depriving of the youth hence the stagnated development in the country.
"The elderly are to dream while the young implement them. President Nana Addo as such, only has to dream and the youth with the strength implements those visions.
"So a nation that leave the implementation of a vision to the aged, that nation shall suffer. If you have a nation that the elderly are not dreaming but rather wants to behave like the youth...as it is in Ghana, that nation never prospers. Your duty is to dream," the lawyer emphasized.
Lawyer Ampaw prayed that this trend changes so the youth could have that space to prove their might and make Ghana great. He noted that such responsibility comes with a sense of accomplishment when success is made a priority.
He thus entreated the youth to learn and build their capacity to take up the challenge of transforming Ghana.
