According to Kufuor, the problem of unprepared leaders is not limited to Ghana, it pervasive in much of Africa.
He said most of the country’s leaders across sectors are performing poorly because they were forced into those positions.
According to him, "the problem of unprepared leaders is not limited to Ghana, it pervasive in much of Africa."
Speaking at the launch of the Endowment Fund of The John A. Kufuor Foundation (JAK Foundation), a ceremony to raise money for the Endowment Fund, which was in line with the "80 for 80" campaign, which seeks to raise GH¢80 million cedis ($15 million) to commemorate his upcoming 80th birthday, the former president noted that the process of preparing the country's leaders must be focused on the youth, who form the foundation for Ghana's leap to prosperity.
He, therefore, called for adequate preparation of the youth for leadership, which his Foundation was seeking to do.
