We’ve Created A record 2.1m Jobs So Far- VP Bawumia

The government has created a record 2.1 million jobs for the youth in the past seven years says Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.


Speaking at the launch of the Youth Employment Agency’s (YEA) latest job and business support initiative, the Business and Employment Assistance Programme in Sunyani, Dr. Bawumia said, “Our focus was to improve job creation through the public and private sector. So far, we have recruited in the private and public sectors 2.1m jobs; 975 by the private sector and 1.2 million by the public sector. The data is there and this cannot be disputed.”


Despite this unprecedented achievement, Dr. Bawumia acknowledged that more needs to be done to address the growing youth population and its need for jobs.
