Kamala Harris, US Vice President has urged young Africans to try to contribute their fair share to the continent’s development.
Kamala Harris is hopeful that this will contribute to the mission of realizing Africa’s great potential and its role in molding the world’s future.
She made this statement to the hundreds of people who had gathered in Accra’s Black Star Square to attend her public lecture.
She is currently on a one-week trip to Ghana and two additional African countries, Tanzania and Zambia.
“All of this is to say that you, especially the young leaders here, have a role to play, and we all have a role to play.
Let us, therefore, dream with ambition and lead with conviction,” she urged.
“This is a part of her three-day trip to Ghana.”
Speaking to the thronging youngsters on Tuesday, Kamala Haris voiced optimism about the possibilities of positive change awaiting the world if hardworking African youth take the wheel.
“I am optimistic about the future of the world because of you, the woman who will shatter every glass ceiling,
the entrepreneur who will identify the next digital breakthrough, the activist to fight for the dignity of every human being,
student and scientist, athletes and artists, farmers and fishers and the young innovators who will solve problems that we haven’t yet identified with solutions.
We can’t even yet imagine,” she added.
Following her speech, the US Vice President is scheduled to tour Cape Coast Castle, where she may deliver another remark.
