- Prof Yankah is saying the government sector can't employ all graduates
- He says fresh graduates must be industrious and lead the way to employ others
Prof. Kwesi Yankah, the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education has charged fresh graduates to look elsewhere for employment as the government sector cannot provide jobs for all graduates across the country.
According to the State Minister, graduates must pick up bigger challenges and pitch up projects ideas as private sector entrepreneurs to employ others.
To him, many expectations of graduates of securing juicy employment offers at the public sector could be ditched if they don’t pick up their destinies into their own hands.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony over the weekend at Koforidua Technical University, Prof Yanhah insisted that technical education is designed to train graduates to be industrious in order to create jobs.
The Minister added that the Akufo-Addo administration is still offering diverse supports to the private sector to stimulate growth across the country. Therefore fresh graduates must take advantage of the initiative to be entrepreneurs
“This government has already extended a special hand of support to the private sector, take this opportunity and drop any expectation of Public Sector jobs .Be captains of your own fate and masters of your own destinies,” Prof. Yankah challenged the youth.
Prof. Kwesi Yankah in his submission stressed that the NPP administration is ever ready to extend a helping hand to any fresh graduate who will prove himself of being industrious.
He also maintained that the Free SHS policy has come to strengthened Ghana’s human resource capacity in order to help students to be innovative thinkers in societies.
The educationist adding that the policy has fully come to stay "partly as an insurance against high unemployment rate in Ghana”.
In all, the Koforidua Technical University in the Eastern Region graduated 1, 910 students in Bachelor of Technology Higher National Diploma and Diploma Course.
