There Are No Structures In Place To Provide Jobs Or Education For The Street Children- Sam George.

According to Sam Nartey George, who is the member of Parliament for the Ningo- Prampram constituency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress, NDC, there are no proper structures put in place to employ the children in the streets or take them to school, allowing exchange their lives for arms in the traffic.

He said on Metro Tv’s “Good Morning Ghana” show that both the New Patriotic Party, NPP and the National Democratic Party, NDC are failing to curb this issue because the Youth Employment Agency is not able to employ all of them due to their numbers.

He also said that it is the responsibility of the government to find accommodation and jobs for the street beggars otherwise they start to move from house to house to rob people. Even one of his counterpart on the show said that the government should try and create jobs in their hometowns for them so that they will be taken back to work there and given a reasonable monthly allowance.

Do you agree with Sam George’s comments on the increased number of street children and beggars on our roads? Have ever had an encounter with these street children?
