The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Bwaumia, has advised Ghanaians to create their own businesses. He encouraged graduates to pursue entrepreneurship as a means of starting their own firm. Entrepreneurship, he believes, would also benefit the county’s development.
Bawumia stated that public sector would not close its doors in order to discourage graduates from working for the government. However, you stand to gain alot if you take that step into entrepreneurship and start your own company.
This statement was made in a speech read on behalf of the Vice President by the Deputy Minister of Education. He gave the address at the University of Mines and Technology’s 13th congregation, which took place just last Saturday.
He stressed that graduates should cultivate positive work attitudes such as hard work and honesty. They should also accept any opportunity that comes their way and remain relevant in society.
