The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has promised to help Ghanaian youths realise their potential by equipping them with IT skills.

John Dramani Mahama says the NDC will implement a lot of policies such as the ‘One Million Coders’ program that will benefit one million Ghanaian youths and give them hope to live fulfilling lives.

“We’re calling it the ‘One Million Coders’ program. This program will train them in software development including coding and programming.

“And these young Ghanaians, in turn, will build our new economy, generate well paid jobs for many of us and also help change Ghana forever,” he said.

He added that youths born in the 21st century deserve to be given the enabling environment in order for them to realize their full potential.

“We must provide them with the normal conditions that will make their 21st Century living fulfilling so that they can realise their full potential,” he said.

He further stated that the NDC, if given the nod in the upcoming election will build “a next-generation infrastructure, healthcare system, education system as well as a next-generation agricultural system.”

“If you are a young person, dare to hope because the NDC is here to support your dreams,” he added.
