We’ve Created A Record 2.1m Jobs So Far – Bawumia

Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia claims that in the last seven years, the government has produced a record 2.1 million jobs for young people.

Dr. Bawumia spoke at the opening of the Business and Employment Assistance Programme in Sunyani, the newest job and business support project from the Youth Employment Agency (YEA), “Our focus was to improve job creation through the public and private sector. So far, we have recruited in the private and public sectors 2.1m jobs; 975 by the private sector and 1.2 million by the public sector. The data is there and this cannot be disputed.”

Dr. Bawumia stated that more work has to be done to address the expanding youth population’s need for jobs notwithstanding this extraordinary accomplishment.

He emphasized, “We have done a lot in terms of job creation, but we still have a lot more to do because the youth constitute the majority of the population.” About 70% of the Ghanaian population is youth.

Dr. Bawumia announced the Business and Employment Support Programme, which will help MSMEs grow by hiring more young people as entrepreneurs and giving financial support to talented workers so they can maintain and grow small and medium-sized businesses. About 10,000 firms and 20,000 adolescents are anticipated to benefit from the YEA’s business and employment aid program.

Dr. Bawumia continued, saying that the government’s initiatives to generate employment show its dedication to young employment.

He said, “The youth of this country are our greatest resource, and it is our collective duty to ensure that they are well positioned to make significant contributions to the economic development of our dear nation.”

In the 2024 elections, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will also represent the NPP as its flagbearer.

The Vice President has pledged to keep attending to the requirements of Ghana’s youth in the employment market and to ensure that more positions are generated for them in the future.
