Ishmael Ayitey, the ministerial nominee for Greater Accra Region has said that he will ensure youth unemployment is brought to an end once he is approved by the Appointments Committee.
According to him, the level of unemployment among the youth has led to the rise in illegal activities including,the Land Guard menace, especially in the Greater Accra Region.
"People are taking advantage of these young men because they do not have jobs. That is why I am so happy with the one district, one factory policy.When we are able to give these people gainful employment, I think we will be able to reduce this land guard menace," he said.
The issue of land guard activities have been rampant, especially in the Greater Accra Region, with these individuals using any means to safeguard their employers' interest in dispute over lands.
Members of Parliament in June 2013, appealed to the police force to launch a full-on attack on the menace, but the problem is still unresolved.
