Mills: I have no regrets appointing young Ministers

The President, John Evans Atta Mills says he has no regrets appointing young persons as ministers in his administration and board members in the various public organizations.

President Mills made this known during a briefing session with Journalists after attending the 17th African Union Summit of Heads of States of Africa in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea last week.

During the summit, a group of selected youth called for pragmatic policies that will enhance their capacity.

President Mills, who had earlier presented a paper to the Union calling for more investment in the youth across Africa, indicated that the call by the youth is legitimate.

He justified this by making references to the number of youth in his government.

“I admire the youth for their strength, their zeal, their determination and above all for their exuberance and they bring some diversity into the area of governance and I think that it is an appropriate call.

“I have no regrets whatsoever for getting a number of young people into my government and they are doing extremely well.

“I wish that the opportunity will offer itself so that I will be able to use more young people in the administration of this country”.

On the decisions taken at the summit, President Mills urged his colleague Heads of State to invest in the future of the youth, saying without that the future of the continent would be jeopardized.
