National Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party Sammy Awuku is calling on Ghanaian youth to rise to the challenge of rejecting President John Dramani Mahama in the 2016 elections.
He claims the president and his government have worsened the plight of Ghanaian youth since taking up office.
He revealed that the National Employment Policy launched by the current government last year is without an action nor implementation plan.
He continued that the fate that befell the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Agency (GYEEDA) is likely to befall the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) as a result of the already reported cases of misappropriation of funds.
“We are all aware of the circumstances which characterized the creation of the YEA after GYEEDA was brought on its knees through the stinking corrupt activities of the Mahama led NDC,” the NPP Youth Organiser said in a statement released on Monday, January 18.
“It is shocking that President Mahama and his government will want a similar fate to befall the newly created Youth Employment Agency.
“The National Youth Wing of the NPP find this as the most glaring pointer to how much President Mahama and his government is dead to the cries and pains of the teeming Ghanaian youth in the face of the unprecedented high unemployment and the ever worsening living conditions in our country.
“It is sad that an Agency which was created to find jobs and support our already stressed youth would neglect its core mandate and delve into frivolities such as financing lavish and unproductive international trips.”
