Unemployment Under Akufo-Addo Highest Ever In The Fourth Republic - Mahama

Previous President John Dramani Mahama has punched President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over Ghana's joblessness rate.

As per him, contrasting all the previous presidents in the Fourth Republic, the current rate is the most noteworthy ever the nation is encountering.

John Dramani Mahama, while talking at the send off of the TEIN APP at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) in Accra on Monday, March 21, 2022, noted, "Ghana is presently encountering the most significant level of joblessness kept in the Fourth Republic, at an expected 14 percent," he, in any case, neglected to give the wellspring of his information.

He added, "this [Akufo-Addo] government's reaction has been the reception of foolhardy, egalitarian, specially appointed and misguided programs that have caused more damage than great. Indeed, even those signed up for the automatic NABCo program have wound up at home following three years and stay neglected for a considerable length of time. I hear that even National Service work force, interestingly, are owed a while's recompenses."

Mahama further denounced the public authority for the demolishing financial circumstances in Ghana, saying the overseeing party has dove the nation into "incredible monetary and social trouble".

"The Akufo-Addo-drove government that came to turn on the rear of mouth-watering vows to make life simpler for Ghanaians and guarantee quick improvement of our nation has so severely blundered the economy that we have been dove into the most crippling financial emergency in around forty years.

"For sure, we as a whole recall that multitude of mouth-watering guarantees, including one by the flow president to change this country in 18 months or less. This emergency into which he has driven us has brought difficulty and languishing over our kin on a scale that we have never seen over the most recent 30 years of our fourth republic," he focused.

Ghana's joblessness rate hit 13.4 percent in 2021, up from 6% in 2010, as per the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS).

Government Statistician, Prof. Samuel Kobina Annim, at that point, said the nation expected to cure developing youth joblessness, given its effect on expansion, financing costs, and monetary result.
