Vice President Bawumia has boasted that his party is the greatest at giving Ghana’s thronging young employment opportunities.
He claims that the NPP government’s measures have ensured that more jobs have been generated and that unemployment has been significantly reduced.
Speaking on Saturday to the arty faithful in Mpraeso, Mr. Bawumia said that the NPP had produced more jobs than the NDC or any other administration, totaling over 2.1 million.
“The government has created 2.1 million jobs since assuming office in 2017,”
“During the NDC administration, there were no jobs, they created unemployment instead of employment but these days there are jobs everywhere. I have been looking at the data lately and we have created 2.1 million jobs.
“975, 000 are in the private sector, 1.2 million in the public sector, this is verifiable and identifiable data that is available. We are not done yet because there are more jobs for us to create. But when it comes to job creation, no government since Independence has created more jobs than the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, anybody can challenge me and I will provide the data.
“But we want to do more, we want to get to the promised land. We can be a Dubai, we can a South Korea, we can a Singapore, it is possible.”
Meanwhile, many Ghanaians have questioned the Vice President’s employment figures with NDC’s Sammy Gyamfi rebutting him with some facts.
