The Concern Voter Movement (CVM), says President Akufo-Addo believes in Ghana and the great potentials of the Ghanaian Youth. That is why almost 70% of the government policies and programmes are Youth driven.
In a statement, the movement mentioned the Free SHS, 1D1F, Digitalisation, Free TVET, Planting for food and jobs, Restoration of Allowances for Teachers and Nursing Trainees, Reviving Scholarship Secretariat, NABCO, Youth in Afforestation, NEIP, Amplified Projects (Amplified Business, Amplified Success & Amplified Social), Presidential Pitch, an initiative for young entrepreneurs and recently Ghana Enterprises Agency as some of the government policy intervention programmes.
The founder and CEO of CVM, Razak Kojo Poku, said President Akufo-Addo’s government is the only Government since independence that has been able to champion youth driven policies and programmes in the areas of Empowerment, Employment, Mentorship, Training and Development.
He said calls to Fix the Country is in the right direction but certainly the Callers must understand and appreciate the fact that President Akufo-Addo is on course fixing the errors, mess and waste of previous Governments, and at the same time gradually transforming the economy to the appreciable satisfaction of Ghanaians.
The statement continued that most of the youth are using the internet positively to contribute to the Akufo-Addo’s agenda of digitalisation, whereas others are using the internet to watch pornography (masturbate alongside), posting and watching nude movies/photos, talking meaningless on social media platforms etc., admitting that it is the responsibility of the Government to create the enabling environment for the citizens to actualise their respective potentials and creativity.
Certainly, President Akufo-Addo has delivered on this by creating the enabling environment for the youth to grow and participate in the economy, for example, the Digitalisation Concept.
It is up to the Youth to stop wasting their precious time on needles NDC politically sponsored confrontations, demonstrations etc., under the pretense of FixTheCountry, and focus on taking advantage of Akufo-Addo’s youthful policies and programmes so that collectively all of us can contribute meaningful in fixing our Country together.
The statement said President Akufo-Addo is on the right path fixing the Country, and certainly, Ghana shall continue to be fixed by subsequent Governments until we reach the optimal standards of socioeconomic development and financial transformation.
The statement urged the Callers of #FixTheCountry to demand from the NDC, the policies and programmes that Rawlings-Mills-Mahama implemented that were youth driven as well as towards fixing the Country for the last 27 years that they were in charge of the Country.
