Believe in Ken Ohene Agyapong because I am a living testimony to the power of creating job opportunities. As an ordinary Member of Parliament, I have successfully created employment for 7,000 people, despite the massive unemployment rate of around 700,000.

As a businessman and potential president, I am confident in my ability to negotiate investments that will generate employment opportunities for our youth. If past leaders failed to deliver on their promises, it does not mean that I will. I have lived a simple life, and my focus is on addressing youth unemployment. Employment is the key issue, even above inflation.

Prioritizing industries will lead to comprehensive economic growth. I am committed to disciplined development. If we lag behind, it will be because we didn’t push hard enough. We must enforce discipline in our workforce. For example, if the workday starts at 8:00 a.m., employees should arrive by 7:45 a.m., not at 10:00 a.m. as has been the norm.

We must eliminate unproductive habits. When Ghanaians go abroad, they excel because they work within effective systems. We need to implement such systems here to create job opportunities. The main problem we face is that long-standing officeholders resist change. Young people migrate and excel elsewhere because their contributions are valued. Here, those in positions for decades often resist new ideas.

We must embrace technological advancements and recognize the capabilities of our youth. Young people are often more adept with new technologies, and we should utilize their skills. We need a culture of openness to ideas and collaboration. I want to inspire the youth by sharing my life experiences and encouraging them. My goal is to ensure that young Ghanaians have the same opportunities as my own children, who have found good jobs abroad. It is unacceptable that our graduates must live with their parents due to a lack of opportunities.

As a leader, I will focus on creating job opportunities for the youth and leveraging their knowledge. I believe in collective intelligence; no single person has all the answers. We need to gather insights from all corners and use them to formulate effective policies. Trust in my vision for a prosperous future driven by youth empowerment and job creation.
