Africa Day: John Mahama's Message To Everyone

Today, 25th May, marks Africa Day and is expected to be a public holiday, but that didn't occur for some unknown reasons. Former President John Dramani Mahama has posted a simple but strong message to everyone citizen and governments in Africa.

According to him, as we celebrate Africa Day, it should remind us of the struggles and sacrifices of our forefathers like Dr Kwame Nkrumah who fought for the liberation of Ghana and of course, the entire African continent to some extent.

According to him, it's time governments provide the requisite resources to the able youth to better equip them for the world. He also said that the opportunity should be given to them to make relevant decisions that would positively impact their lives.

Below is his succinct message:

Today is May 25, Africa Day. It is yet another opportunity for us to reflect on the vision and sacrifices of the late Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and his peers.

Today also reminds us of the need to work harder as a people and governments to improve upon the legacy bestowed upon us.

As the world's youngest continent, Africa must ensure that our young people greater access to resources, have a stronger voice in decision making, and are not discriminated against.

In a time when the global pandemic, covid-19, has taught us many lessons, we have to let Africa lead the way through our youth.

The time to act is now.

Happy #AfricaDay.
