Unemployment has been a issue of great concern to almost everybody in Ghana and every government the country has had.
Graduates of the University and other tertiary institutions find it extremely difficult to secure jobs after successful completion of their various programs.
The problem of unemployment transcends the borders of graduates. Even the uneducated are finding it difficult to find jobs.
Both past and present governments have introduced policies and programs to check the problem of unemployment but these policies and programs have not sufficed.
The youth have called for the government to do more to create job openings for them.
This they say is how to make their lives meaningful to themselves and the society.
The call comes amid increasing frustration over the high unemployment among the young people in the continent.
The unacceptably high level of youth unemployment and poverty is driving many to make the perilous journey across the Sahara to Europe in search of better life.
The youth at a forum held at Jasikan expressed the burning desire to live their dreams and contribute to the growth of the country.
The program was organized by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to discuss how to help protect the young people from extremist ideologies.
It brought together traditional rulers, assembly members, youth and other other organized groups in the area.
Clement Kwesi Mamadu, acting Oti Regional Director of the NCCE, urged the people to work together to sustain the nation on the path of peace and stability.
He asked that everybody accepted to play their expected part to aid the security agencies to keep Ghana safe.
They should be bold to provide the police with useful leads to stay ahead of any criminal elements in their communities.
