The controversial personality and member of parliament for the Asian Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong, made a complain on why graduates in Ghana find it difficult to obtain a job after completing University.
According to the MP, comparing the system in United States to Ghana really makes him feel guilty. The system isn’t working well in our country, Ghana.
Kennedy passed this comment during an interview session addressing the problem of youth unemployment in the country on Net 2, a popular Ghanaian Tv Station.
It’s very sad to see graduates completes school, finishing their national service and still not finding a job to do.
The unemployed labor force keeps increasing each and every year and this put more pressure on the labor force.
This has become like a norm and ritual in Ghana. Only a small percentage of graduates after National service secures a job to do by the government. Some also find other jobs to do somewhere but the majority of people would be seen at home just because there’s no job to do.
It takes a number of years before many of them can secure a job for themselves.
According to Kennedy Agyapong, one of her daughter got a job to do abroad few days after she completed her education in the United States. This shows how effective their system is working.
Ghanaian leaders must rise up and find a way to resolve this canker in the country.
‘I don’t understand why my daughter could graduate from school on Saturday and get a job on Tuesday in the United States but a Ghanaian can complete school and remain unemployed for years. I feel so guilty abou this and it’s about time we should come together and modify the system’ Kennedy Agyapong said.
Social media users have reacted to Kennedy’s claim. Some support his decision while others condemns it.
According to some Ghanaians, it would be better if Kennedy Agyapong team up with other big officials to change the system rather than to come online and say things they themselves know they wouldn’t work on.
