Daniel Asiedu, Zenith Bank MD

Daniel Asiedu, Managing Director of Zenith Bank Ghana Limited, has expressed confidence in the youth of Africa, saying the continent has a bright future with its enormous natural resources.

He said the failure of the older generation to provide adequate support to the African youth had affected the development of the continent.

Mr. Asiedu, whose bank is one of the major sponsors of the 2012 Springboard Roadshow, called for a drastic action on the part of African leaders to instill confidence in the youth and help grow the economy.

Speaking at the event, which was on the theme, “Promoting Excellence through Innovation and Technology,” Mr. Asiedu said Africa is blessed with natural resources, some which are yet to be discovered.

“We live in the age of the youth who are hungry for success and can be the driving force behind economic prosperity on the continent,” he added.

Referring to philosophies of some great men and women including Oprah Winfrey, Alexander Amosua and 18-year-old Indian King, he said “the future is now. Be Bold. Take hold of it.”

Mr. Asiedu challenged the youth to be more creative and innovative, saying, “We live in the age of the youth who are hungry for success and can be the driving force behind economic prosperity on the continent.”

He added that the youth will be engaged and motivated to be emotionally stable to make a difference in their chosen careers.

The event, held at the beginning of every year, brings influential personalities together for a stimulating discussion on topical corporate issues and career decisions.
Springboard Roadshow is to motivate people and develop a new generation of African achievers.
