Mr. Emmanuel Ametepey, Official Executive of Youth Promoters Ghana (YAG) expressed that they need to have youngsters take an interest informative issues is significant yet it troublesome and costly to get to certain political stages.
“even though the youth are the majority, we do not have that opportunity to really participate in the political process, either by way of standing up in an election or by way of contesting in an election, because of how expensive the electoral process has become, so very often young people do not have that chance to go to parliament at the younger age, we are fortunate to even have honourable Francisca to have been elected to parliament in the last election at the age of 25, we often don’t see that happening because of the issues of the electoral process,” he said.
He called on the youth to set out to take up administration position.
“one of the important goals for young people is to take up leadership positions and to make themselves available to get involved in politics and when I say getting involved in politics, I am not only looking at it from standing out to contest as a member of parliament but throughout the political party processes right from the party level to the national election level, we must encourage, the youth to get involved” he noted.
In the interim, the third edition of the webinar series will be held on 8th August 2020.
