The Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has given an assurance that he will create the right environment for the private sector to create lots of jobs for the youth.

He said by resolving fundamental challenges such as providing a unique national identification system, which had already begun, it would build the confidence of entrepreneurs to know which individuals they were dealing with and that would make private sector businesses to thrive.

Dr Bawumia was addressing a rally of youth in the Eastern regional capital, Koforidua, yesterday on plans he has for the youth of the country at a programme dubbed “Youth Connect”, where the flag bearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) started his campaign in an attempt to annex the December 7 presidential election.

“Ghana needs a leader to solve many of the problems relating to the youth which include unemployment, improving the quality of life, increasing access to quality education, reducing the cost of data for internet, increasing life expectancy and creating opportunities for all regardless of socio-economic background,” the NPP flag bearer said.

“I am a problem solver, and a generational thinker with innovative ideas to solving these problems; reducing youth unemployment, increasing life expectancy and creating opportunities for all. I have a solid track record as Vice-President to prove it,” he added.

The Vice-President also mentioned the availability of a functional national address system, which he said would enable entrepreneurs to succeed because they could easily locate customers, a critical factor to business growth and expansion to create more jobs.

“The demand for goods and services will increase once clients in the comfort of their homes or offices could buy a product and it could be easily delivered to them,” he stated.

Dr Bawumia stressed that mobile money interoperability, which he championed, was the solution to another fundamental problem aimed at making the economy cash-lite to facilitate the basic payments system critical to business growth.
