The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), Mr Justin Koduah Frimpong, has said the Akufo-Addo government job-creation credentials are unparalleled.
Speaking to Class News about the thousands of young men and women who thronged the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) on Thursday, 9 September 2021 to look for jobs at a Job and Career Fair organised by his agency, Mr Koduah Frimpong said despite the huge numbers of unemployed youth, the Akufo-Addo government deserves commendation helping the situation since he came to office in 2017.
“If we cast our mind back to 2017, what was the employment situation in our country and what did the current government do in attempting to solve the unemployment situation in the country”.
He said in the various public sectors: education, health, security, “the record number of people who have been recruited is unmatchable”.
The two-day Job and Career Fair ends today, Friday, 10 September 2021.
Many young men and women were seen with brown envelopes containing their CVs hoping to secure jobs from some companies that had mounted stands at the venue.
