The Presidential Candidate said “If we do not do this urgently, we have a time bomb ticking away. Everything, every policy, and every policy will be focused on creating jobs for young people”
Speaking on his second coming, Candidate Mahama stressed that his One Million Jobs Agenda will see 300,000 to 400,000 jobs being created in the private and public sectors yearly.
