You Don't Need Power To Help The Youth - Johnnie Hughes

Elections are about two months away and the campaign trail of the various political parties have pick up steam. Both NDC and NPP have launched their manifestos and are embarking on tours throughout the country to sell their campaign messages. For some of the minor political parties and independent candidates their campaign message seem to be centered around helping the youth.

Johnnie Hughes, this morning, has advised the independent presidential candidates who are seeking to be elected into the highest office of the land not to wait to be elected as presidents before helping the Ghanaian youth. In his view, the Ghc100,000 being charged by the Electoral Commission can be used by these independent presidential candidates to create jobs for the youth.

Citing an example, he explained that the Ghc100,000 could be invested in a piggery (pig farm) which would employ a good number of the youth. According to Johnny, there are several people in the country who are doing their bid to help the youth in the country without seeking to be elected as president of the country.

He was speaking this morning on TV3's program New Day. This article writer thinks it's is a laudable advice and if properly implemented could go a long way to help the teeming unemployed youth.

But what do you think? Let's know your comments in the comment section below. Don't forget to like and share as well.
