Dr Bawumia Addresses CCG's Ghana Youth Congress


The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has charged the youth to develop a can-do mindset to build a sustainable future while striving to pursue skills that will drive the country toward realising its transformation agenda.

Addressing youth delegates during the opening ceremony of the Ghana Youth Congress organized by the Christian Council of Ghana at Gomoa Fetteh, he highlighted several efforts being undertaken by government to empower the youth.

These include stakeholder engagement for skill revitalisation in several sectors of the economy. “For example, the banking sector is engaging in skills development programmes for at least 150,000 youth over the next three years; and the tourism, arts and culture sector targets to train and certify 10,000 persons by 2023 on specific tourism and cultural skills.”

Additionally, he said, there is ongoing construction and modernisation of all National Vocational Training Institutes (NVTIs) and Opportunity Industrialisation Centres (OIC).

The Youth Start initiative, which will support young entrepreneurs in gaining access to capital, training, technical skills and mentoring to launch and operate their businesses is also being promulgated. He said these initiatives have been carefully designed as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to revitalise and transform the economy precisely for the youth to build forward better.

The Ghana Youth Congress, slated from Tuesday February 8 to Friday, February 11, 2022, is on the theme: “Ghana my home, my future”.

The Ghana gathering, a precursor to the continental congress to be organised by the All Africa Conference of Churches (AACC), is under the auspices of the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG).

It has brought together about 500 youth from various churches across the country to learn and encourage one another to share stories of belief, nationalism and patriotism.

Present at the congress were Rev. Dr. Cyril G.K Fayose, General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rt. Rv. Prof. J.O.Y Mante, Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Prof. Mrs. Angela Ofori other and other important dignitories
