Chairman of the National Peace Council, Rev. Professor Emmanuel Asante, says Ghana’s youth are disappointed in the political process of the country.

According to him, politicians have contributed to the situation because rather than solving the many challenges of the country, they end up making more promises without fulfilling them.

“To be honest with you when you talk to a lot of the young people, they are disappointed because we are talking too much when they have no jobs,” he said.
Head of Ghana’s Peace Council disclosed this when he addressed a Peace Summit organised by the Rotary Club in Accra.

“We are creating tension and fear which shouldn’t be the case,” he said, noting this has compelled many of the youth to lose confidence in the electoral process.

Recounting his interaction with some of the youth, Rev. Prof Asante said: “I have come into contact with some young people who said they will not even vote for the simple reason that all of them [politicians] are the same.”

This, he believes should not have happened in the first place had politicians been cautious of the promises made to Ghanaians.

“But I think politicians should do something to salvage that image,” he said, adding, they have to do a lot of explanation in order to change that impression.

“You need to explain things clearly to the people and the challenges and what efforts are being made to address the challenges,” he added.

As the only flagbearer who honored the invitation to sign the Peace deal, Presidential Candidate of People’s National Convention (PNC), Dr Edward Mahama used the opportunity to call on the youth to let peace prevail in the country.

He explained “young people are like atoms. They have a lot of potentials, they have a lot of energy and if you don’t channel that energy productively, and you leave that energy it will be destructive.”

He cautioned them to desist from acts that will incite violence in the country, adding “just go and let your thumb do the talking.”
