A member of the communication team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akomea has stated that the party would pay the rent advance of the Ghanaian youth when they are retained in power.
According to Nana Akomea, this would help provide a short term cushion for the Ghanaian youth from the problem of high rent and long rent advance.
Nana Akomea made this known during a press conference on Monday, October 26, 2020.
“Government will pay the rent Advance for you, and you pay the rent monthly to the scheme.” he said.
According to report filed by JoyNews, he said the move would be implemented through the National Rental Assistance Scheme.

It would also target Ghanaian youth working in both the formal and informal sectors with a regular income.
