The President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has spent almost one year in his second term of office. There were many promises that was made before giving the nod. Though some have been fulfilled while others are yet to see light of the day. One major problem facing Ghana is high unemployment rate. There has been instances whereby students graduate and sit at home for a very long time without getting a job to do. In previous years, students have to organise demonstrations to government in order to give them appointment.
The government payroll is so choked making it difficult to immediately recruit graduates right after school. The current finance minister once made it clear that graduates should look at other avenues because the government payroll is very full. This also became a talk of time as people couldn't fathom why they have spent much in school only to come home without getting a job to do. President Akuffo Ado has sent a good message to Ghanaians concerning job recruitment.
According to him, he is happy to inform us that approval has been given by cabinet for the recruitment of an additional number of thousand, one hundred (1,100) new veterinary officers into the Ministry of food and agriculture. He said out of this number, 50% will be recruited in 2022 and the other 50% will be progressively taken on board over a two year period. This is a good development which will one way or the other reduce the high rate of unemployment amongst young graduates.
