Former President John Dramani Mahama has told African countries to strive to deepen democracy in the modern system.
Speaking at the Chatham House on Friday, January 27, Mr Mahama called for youth participation in the governance process in Africa.
He noted that Africa has a youthful population of about 60 percent.
“We need to continue to deepen democracy in the modern world,” he said.
He added “Colonialism, slavery and an unfair world order shouldn’t be a reason to absolve corrupt African leaders who misuse resources of the continent.”
