Former Ghanaian president, John Dramani Mahama has indicated that unemployment in Ghana can be solved by collective efforts.
According to him, if the ruling party wants to solve the high unemployment rate in the country, they would have to work with all stakeholders including the opposition party, the National Democratic Congress.
He made this known during his thank you tour in the Upper West region and in his submission, he gave insights into why unemployment continues to be an issue in the country.
In his submission, he said;
“I have been president before and I know that our economy is not turning out jobs as we are turning out young people from our educational institutions.
The solution does not lie in one person’s head; that is why I have always said that we are willing as a party to join the ruling party and let’s have a high-level summit on job creation to see how we can come out with a communique on what successive government must do to make sure our young people can get jobs to do so that we can grow the economy faster and make sure that our people live in decency and dignity.
The danger we face in not doing that is that our young people continue to lose faith in our democracy because the point they make is a democracy does not work for us why should I come out and vote.”
