Unemployment is undoubtedly a major setback of the country’s growth.
Quite a number of Ghanaians are actively employed either by the state agencies or the private sector irrespective of the country’s population of about 33 million.
Unemployment challenges has rendered most graduates jobless and this has arguably led to formation of Graduate ‘Unemployment Association’ in the country.
Nonetheless, the fast rising political party in the country, Ghana Union Movement (GUM) is determined to cut down unemployment rate to not more than 30% in their first term of office if they are voted to power on December 7, 2020 general elections.
According to the Ashanti regional GUM secretary, Felix Kofi Etuahene, the party will create employment for all Ghanaians both educated and uneducated when they are voted to power.
“We are going to create a lot of jobs for the people of Ghana in our first term of office if only they give us the mandate on December 7 polls”, his statement.
He told Newstimesgh.com that employment shall not base on only certificate, relatively by people’s ability, power, skills and expertise in instances where specialization is needed.
The secretary revealed that, GUM will be able to create employment via the revamp of all abandoned and uncompleted state owned factories, retaking of statement owned factories from those individuals and groups that acquired them unlawfully.
He further stated that the party will establish state owned farms to employ many Ghanaians especially the unskilled labour force.
The Ghana union movement will focus on industrialization programs and other initiatives and this they believe will help to create employment thereby alleviating unemployment to the bottom.
The Secretary has however pleaded with Ghanaians to vote for the party on December 7, 2020 in other to save the country from the hands of corrupt NPP and NDC.
