At the students front, Mr. Kwasi Kwarteng served as the National President of the University Students Association of Ghana; the mother umbrella of all university students in Ghana from 2017 to 2018. Among other roles he also served in other capacities at the national front as a member of the Ghana Youth Federation Committee at its initial establishment.
Mr. Kwarteng’s appointment comes as joy for the teeming youth who believes that they should be given the opportunity to serve the country in diverse roles. Whilst others see his appointment as recognition of the youth front, many also view it as a reward and affirmation of his prowess in communication displayed as a communicator of the ruling government.
