The Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon Lawyer Francis-Xavier Kojo Sosu has narrated how he was able to save a University Graduate from committing suicide. They were speaking on the growing unemployment rate in Ghana and some of the challenges some of the youths have been going through.
Speaking on Good Morning Ghana show, he told Randy Abbey that he was in his office one day when a lady called him and said "I want to kill myself. Please honourable it is wrong for a lady with Second Class Upper from a University to sell sobolo on the street?". According to Sosu, the message from the really scared him because the lady was crying on the phone. So he called on his lawyers to go and look for this lady.
When they got to the location of this lady, she narrated that because she could get any job relating to her field of studies after school, she decided to hawk sobolo on the street to take care of herself. But people she knew and her friends have been mocking her that "How can a whole university graduate becomes a hawker of sobolo on the street?"
This continuous treatment from these people really hurt her and she feels useless in this world. But according to Lawyer Francis-Xavier Kojo Sosu, he and his lawyers were able to counsel the lady and save the lady from committing suicide. For some reason, he cannot give the name, location and details about this lady. So Lawyer Sosu was telling the New Patriotic Party (NPP) panellist on the show that the issue of unemployment in Ghana is not about telling the people that your government has been able to provide this number of jobs.
To be able to ascertain that whether the government (NPP or NDC) has done well, check the population of the unemployed rate compared to the employed. According to him, all indications shows that the government is not creating enough jobs to satisfy the growing population. This is not about NDC or NPP. "The devil always find a job for the hand that is not working" - Sosu concluded.
