Ex President John Agyekum Koufour has advised currently unemployed graduates to develop an entrepreneurial way of life instead of waiting for government to provide employment opportunities for them.
“Find a way to keep afloat till when the employment comes along and this will mean a sense of enterprise. Don’t think of the big scale. Whatever little things you can do to keep yourself in decency because if you are not doing something sooner or later you will begin to degenerate" said the ex Ghanaian President.
President Koufour was speaking at a programme titled 'A Conversation on Leadership and the Future of Africa', where he alluded to the fact that the growing demand for 'traditional' office jobs by fresh graduates was making these types of employment opportunities even more scarce.
The former President went to add that, “We’ve come to a point where people think when you finish school there is a job for you to be employed. We need to change our mind and become venturesome. You have finished, you are graduate but if you do not get employment opportunities don’t sit and put your hands here like we say in traditional parlance."
