No Hope for The Youth: Backlashes as YEA Boss Admits Sadness at Number of Unemployed Youth Turnout

The rising levels of unemployment in the country as at now is nothing to write home about. This assertion has been made by Justin Koduah Frimpong, the current boss of the Youth Employment Agency. He has made it known that the rising levels of unemployment among the youths in the country is something that the government of Ghana need to work on.

A lot of Ghanaians have reacted to the post, making known their varied opinions on the issue. Sam Nick made a statement that Wysopera thinks should be looked into. Check it out below.

Sam Nick has criticised the current government for some of its actions that it has taken. Nick has alleged that those steps were gingered at weakening the private businesses of the opponents of the New Patriotic Party, but it has resulted in rendering a lot of Ghanaians jobless. He tries to make it clear that most investors are afraid of investing in businesses under the Akuffo Addo Led government because of the fear of it not bearing the fruits intended.

Dwamena is of the view that the culture of giving our resources out to foreigners is that which has been crippling the economy and the job market of Ghana. Banuro also extends the debate to the free education policy introduced by the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo. Banuro is of the view that if the free Senior High School education was to be made a free vocational and technical school, the students might complete and have a handiwork to do. This could have reduced the level of unemployment among the youths dramatically.

Kwame Dodzi has alleged that the youths are kept unemployed so that those in authority can use them as foot soldiers. He has also alleged that for those in authority to keep the youths as foot soldiers, they have resorted to employing only those in their party of affiliation into the security services in Ghana.

What do you think accounts for the high rate of unemployment among the youths in Ghana?
