The Youth Employment Agency in conjunction with other private entities through the government of Ghana organized a job fair at the Accra International Conference Centre to afford some unemployed youth across the country the opportunity to gain employment in the respective facets they so desire.
Thousands of people gathered at the AICC to grab opportunities available but the event was slightly marred by injuries and tampering of properties largely due to a stampede that was occasioned by a large number of people and the lack of crowd control measures that was visibly missing.
Commenting on the development on Metro TV's "Good Morning Ghana" show, the North Tongu legislator indicated that what happened at the AICC was a clear sign of incompetence on the part of the government. He wondered why the government would risk the lives of citizens in the midst of coronavirus instead of putting in place an online platform to enable eligible job seekers to access it and if picked, appear in person for interviews in a more controlled manner.
" Why do you organize a job fair of this nature? In this technological age, you can't put the fair online and direct persons to the companies if they have to go for interviews? Why do you have to crump people in this manner? No crowd control in this covid era. We were promised high-level competence but this is not it. We are even lucky because things could have been worse", he stated.
