Youth advised to use innovation to link nat’l cohesion

The youth have been advised to apply the knowledge they acquired from tertiary institutions to be innovative and link it to national cohesion and development.

They should be able to adapt themselves to the environment and make the best out of it to enable them to give off their best at the least opportunity presented them in preparation towards taking up the mantle of leadership.

Dr Kofi Amoah, an entrepreneur, gave the advice when he addressed students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), and cited Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and others who were all university students when they decided to start something and at the end of their struggle, impacted the world through their innovations.

It was the 70th anniversary on the theme: ‘70 years of KNUST-Reflections and Projections by the Youth President’.

Dr Amoah admonished the youth to be able to adapt to their environment and make the best out of it and themselves as well and encouraged them to make use of opportunities available and realise their importance in transforming their lives and society as a whole.

He asked them to take technology seriously and make the best out of it as it had become a game-changer for the global economy, and transforming the lives of people in every economy and urged the state to create conducive environment for the youth to make their growth, development and advancement certain.

.“There are many issues you can do with technology, the reason why there has to be stable economy, well-built plan for society, our youth, and quality is not issue you can joke with because if you have quantity, and you can add to quality that is good, but if you cannot control both, always strive for quality to accelerate socioeconomic development.

“KNUST as an institution has produced a lot of successful people through its innovations, programmes and policies which the current generation must tap into to help in transformation of the country as it marks its 70th anniversary since current economic conditions in the country are not favourable for the youth who want to set up businesses and rather favours foreign nationals,” Dr Amoah asserted. –
