The Next Pandemic that Will Hit Africa Will be Youth Unemployment – UN Peace Ambassador

The United Nations Peace Ambassador in Ghana, Bishop Samuel Ben Owusu, has expressed worry that youth unemployment is going to be another major catastrophe to hit the African continent if measures are not taken to address the menace.

The Senior Pastor at the Pottersville  Church and also the Country Director of International Association of World Peace Advocates implored African governments to as a matter of urgency initiate measures to tackle the problem.

Addressing the press in Accra on Sunday after his trip to the UN General Assembly in New York, he said “I told the president that as we are fighting Covid 19 today if we are not careful the next pandemic that will hit Africa will be youth unemployment if we do not have a very deliberate strategy for the youth of Africa.

“Youth unemployment has contributed to a lot of crimes, this has contributed to social bully, social media insults and more especially hate speeches.”
