United State of America Vice President, Kamala Harris has encouraged young Africans to strive to contribute their quota to the development of the continent.
Madam Harris is optimistic that this will work towards keeping to the mission to realise the vast potential in Africa and its role in shaping the world’s future.
She made this statement when addressing hundreds of people who swarm the Black Star Square in Accra to listen to her public lecture.
Madam Harris is currently embarking on a one-week tour which will see her visit Ghana and two other African countries – Tanzania and Zambia.
“So all of this to say you and in particular the young leaders here, you have a role to play and together we have a role to play. So then, let us dream with ambition and lead with conviction,” she said.
This forms part of her three-day visit to Ghana. Speaking to the youth on Tuesday, Kamala Haris expressed excitement about the possibility of positive change awaiting the world if industrious African youth stand upright and stay focus.
