Professor Godfred A. Bokpin of the University of Ghana Business School claims that attending university is the quickest way to become unemployed in Ghana.
Professor Godfred A. Bokpin believes that Ghanaian graduates will spend their entire youth hunting for occupations that do not exist, which is concerning for a growing country.
The lecturer was responding to statements made by Ghana’s vice president, Bawumi, claiming the Akufo-Addo government had done a better job of managing the country and economy than the NDC’s Mahama administration.
“Today, going to university is the quickest way to get unemployed. Because unemployment is particularly high among university graduates aged 22 to 29.
Even if they study employment at university, they waste their valuable time/youth hunting for jobs that do not exist. These are the concerns, in my opinion, that requires our attention. “We can do a lot better,” he said in an interview on Joy FM in Accra.
As a result, Professor Godfred A. Bokpin advised the government to tackle corruption head-on because it is one of the most effective ways to enact life-changing policies and ensure that the chances of the country’s youth are developed.
