The Greater Accra Regional Youth Network has appealed to the Government of Ghana to help prioritize youth development issues especially, employable skills in Information Technology (IT).

This appeal from the Greater Accra Regional Youth Network comes on the back of the commemoration of International Youth Day which is annually celebrated on August 12.

In a press statement released by the Youth Network, the group called on the Government of Ghana to address the major challenge of the Ghanaian youth which is widespread unemployment which has exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown where everything has been turned upside down.

On the basis of this canker, the youth network has opined that focusing on youth development issues at this moment of hardship would be to help build their capacities through the provision of employable IT skills in a bid to help create employment opportunities for them.

“We are therefore calling on the government to urgently roll out a national ICT for Work program with a special focus on preparing the Ghanaian youth for the virtual or digital world in order to stay relevant or competitive in the global job market,” portions of the statement read.

The group added that “In line with the theme of this year’s International Youth Day: “Youth Engagement for Global Action”, we also appeal to the political parties in the country contesting for political power in the upcoming polls in December to exercise restraint in their dealings, eschew violence and desist from instigating the youth to perpetrate mayhem before, during and after the elections but should rather collaborate with the youth to ensure peaceful, political and sustainable process.”
