The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it will create a Youth Development Ministry to prioritise youth issues if given the nod in the December 7 poll.
The current arrangement is that issues bothering on youth development are handled by the Youth and Sports Ministry with the National Youth Authority as an agency under it.
The challenge has been that often issues affecting youth are not prioritised by the Ministry since sports is more lucrative.
But the NDC has promised in page 84 of its 143-page ‘People’s Manifesto’ to “mainstream and prioritize youth issues.”
