Employment is an issue that previous governments in Ghana have grappled with. Various policies have been put together with success stories ranging from poor to somewhat good.
The Akufo-Addo government has promised to massively transform the economy so as to accommodate the employment of all who are willing and able to work.
This means that graduates from tertiary schools will feature prominently in the agenda the government is putting together.
Graduate employment as part of the problem, is a special kind. YEN.com.gh asked its readers why this was the case.
We gathered some of the responses that best represented the general feeling.
Hammond Alhassan chipped in with a submission most Ghanaians have grown to recognise, The issue of employment depends on "whom u know and not what u know".
Another Facebook user, Inusah Fusein was unforgiving as the observation came in as "Greedy, corruption and lack of leaders with vision".
Some attacked the educational system in Ghana. Patrick Gyimah wrote: "Because the education system we have here are force to chew. Pour, pass and forget."
Seth Kwame Fianko-Larbi blamed graduate unemployment on "Dependency Mentality".
Holly KwaBoat added that graduates are unemployed because "They are lazy and proud".
