Getting employed as an energetic youth to earn a source of livelihood is the most promising hope for all and sundry. Many struggle for their daily bread via hustling and bustling in the scorching sun and this is gradually becoming an accepted phenomenon in most African countries.
As the Dec 7 election is drawing closer, both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are promising jobs for the teeming youth in a bid to get their thumbs.
Per a new World Bank Report, Ghana is faced with about 12 percent youth unemployment and more than 50 percent underemployment. This is both higher than overall unemployment rates in Sub-Saharan African countries.
Despite major investments by both government and private sector, this challenge will intensify if job opportunities remain limited.
