Former President John Mahama has proposed a shift from the leadership style on the continent to trigger a wave of desired economic development and advancement.

The former President also noted that a key element to transforming the economies of African countries is the youth.

He believes if the ‘enterprising and dynamic young people’ are given more opportunities, the destiny of Africa will be changed for the better.

John Mahama’s proposition, posted on his website, is in commemoration of the 57th African Union Day, today, May 25.

In his assessment, the COVID-19 pandemic, which has infected millions of lives and led to the death of lots of people globally and affected the global economy leading to revision of growth rates worldwide, has exposed the weaknesses of the African economy.

To ensure a stronger and robust economy that is resilient to such unforeseen incidents, he advocates for innovative leadership, opportunities for the youth and rededication of African leaders to set goals and vision on the continent.

He wrote, “Seven years ago, I joined my colleague Heads of State in Addis Ababa to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our Continental Union, the African Union.

“We adopted #Agenda2063 as our blueprint for transforming our continent into a future significant global partner.

“Across our continent, as we celebrate #AfricaDay on Monday May 25, we must dedicate ourselves as a people and governments towards realising the objectives of #Agenda2063 and building #TheAfricaWeWant.

“COVID-19 has exposed the structural weaknesses of our economic paradigm as exporters of primary goods and importers of finished products. But with innovative leadership and a belief in especially our enterprising and dynamic young people, we can and we should turn the wheels of the African Economy back on track. Happy AU Day,” the former Ghanaian leader suggested.
