The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) under the NDC government, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor has called on all stakeholders to work together to resolve the unemployment challenges bedeviling the country.
According to him, government alone cannot solve the high rate of unemployment thus, the need for secondary support.
The former BoG governor noted that the greatest problem the youth in Ghana are battling with is unemployment.
Dr Kwabena Duffuor made this pronouncement when Chiefs of Ngleshi Amanfrom installed Dr Abbeam Danso, founder of Abbeam Institute of Technology, as the developmental chief (Nkosuohene) of Amanfrom.
Dr. Kwabena Duffuor stressed that the massive rush by the youth to be recruited into the security services reveals that Ghana is in an employment crises which he believes is contributing to criminal activities.
He therefore called on the private sector to open up more businesses to absorb the teeming unemployed youth which would complement the efforts of government.
There is no retirement when it comes to creating businesses and opening up opportunities for our younger generation to be gainfully employed irrespective of your age, he said in the Twi dialect.
While touting his achievements as owning a lot of businesses, he promised to keep on doing more works since the people of Kumawu, of which he is a part of, are hardworking.
He also praise Dr Abbeam Danso for helping in the youths in the private by giving them employment.
Meanwhile former Vice President of the National House of Chiefs, Daasebre Kwabu Awusi who was present at the installation, appealed to chief makers to install right people as chiefs to reduce chieftaincy disputes in the country.
He underscored that chieftaincy-related clashes lead to retrogression and robs the people of their hard efforts at development.
The newly installed Developmental Chief of Ngleshie Amanfrom, Nana Abbeam Danso, also pledged to provide scholarships for about 200 brilliant but needy children who are willing to become Physician Assistants, Journalists among other professions to reduce the crime rate in Kasoa and Amanfrom area.
