Speaking on Friday at the Osu Castle, he said the NPP administration cannot fail the youth who voted massively for the party in the 2016 elections.
Reposing confidence in the ability of the Akufo-Addo led the government to create jobs, Mr Awuku charged that "time is not on our side."
He said many of the agitations that have rocked the eight-month old government of President Akufo-Addo are due to joblessness.
“Nana Addo recognizes the mandate that the youth of our country gave him and we cannot fail the masses. I’m confident the president will deliver, but Mr Senior Minister let’s double up because time is also not on our side,” he said.
He continued: “I want the NPP government that the youth voted massively for to also move beyond just the paper talk when we are solving youth unemployment.
"I say this because, under the previous administration, it was always a fanfare when it was International Youth Day. At least today we are in the open, so we’ve moved from the air-conditioned room at the Conference Centre as it used to be, to face the reality under the sun.
"Today we are faced with big challenges across in terms of our youth. You have growing anxiety, and growing uncertainty. And that is why at the least provocation the youth will either seize something or misbehave.
“Whilst we always condemn and condemn in no uncertain terms, the government must also lead the way in quickening the process in helping provide jobs for our teeming youth,” he said, capping the prompting with the popular refrain, “Boys abrƐ oo, boys abrƐ”.
