Youth Unemployment In Ghana A Ticking Time Bomb – Fmr Mini …
A former Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Mr. Akwasi Oppong-Fosu has appealed to the Akufo-Addo-led administration to expedite measures to tackle the growing youth unemployment in the country.
The local governance expert who was speaking on the Gumbe show on TV XYZ admitted that the joblessness among the youth in Ghana is very dangerous to the democracy of the country, stressing that something ought to be done about it.
Oppong-Fosu, a former Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, observed that “youth unemployment is very dangerous to every country” and threatens the peace and security of the country since hungry lads could cause chaos when they have access to sophisticated weapons.
“We all know the youth are the strength of the country, so if they do not have jobs and are hungry, then the country will always be in conflict,” he lamented.
He was speaking on the current state of affairs of the country as well as the impact of the coup d’etat that has toppled the government of Alpha Conde in Guinea.
