“Akufo Addo cannot solve Ghana’s unemployment alone” – John Mahama

Former Ghanaian president John Mahama believes that the country’s high rate of unemployment can be alleviated through concerted and collective action.

John Mahama, during his thank-you tour of the Upper West area, said the ruling party must engage with all stakeholders, including his opposition party, the National Democratic Congress, in order to tackle the high unemployment rate in the nation.

The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) went on to explain why the country’s unemployment problem persists. In his own words he said:

“I have been president before and I know that our economy is not turning out jobs as we are turning out young people from our educational institutions.

“The solution does not lie in one person’s head; that is why I have always said that we are willing as a party to join the ruling party and let’s have a high-level summit on job creation to see how we can come out with a communique on what successive government must do to make sure our young people can get jobs to do so that we can grow the economy faster and make sure that our people live in decency and dignity.

“The danger we face is not doing that is that our young people continue to lose faith in our democracy because the point they make is a democracy does not work for us why should I come out and vote.”
