Founder of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has blamed the unemployment situation in the country on Tribalism and Corruption, what he describes as “twin evils”.
He stated unemployment is a major problem in Ghana that should not be overlooked.
Addressing students of Catholic University in the Brong Ahafo Region, Dr Nduom urged the students to make the necessary change needed to create employment opportunities for graduates across the country.
He noted although there are lack of job opportunities for graduates, it is possible to create many employment avenues with the right attitude and leadership.
Dr Nduom stressed that Tribalism and Corruption have gone a long way to derail our employment systems.
He stated tribalism cuts off well qualified people with the requisite skills from being employed, a situation which is not only prevalent in the public but private sector, thereby retarding economic growth.
Aside Tribalism and Corruption, Dr Nduom added that raising the level of education in the country as well as supporting and patronising our own products would help solve the unemployment situation in the country.
