Ken Ofori Atta while speaking to fresh graduates of the University of Professional Studies, Accra(UPSA) advised that they start their very businesses because the government’s payroll is full and will not be able to sustain them in the public sector.
According to him, the unemployment rate in the public sector will keep rising should they fail to heed his advice by engaging in other lucrative ventures to cushion them as they finally graduate from school.
Mr. Ofori-Atta said that the government spends around 60% of its revenue on reimbursing about 650,000 people. Ghanaweb.com published a report on the situation. According to Ofori Atta, the government’s duty and responsibility are to build the necessary enabling environment, establish micro-stability, and ensure that residents have the necessary skills.
The finance minister continued that entrepreneurship, skillset, and credit are the most critical factors a person needs in the mix to ensure young sustainability and provide them with the opportunity to establish their own route to prosperity.
In reaction to that, Twene Jonas pledged to pressure the leaders in the country on their failure to translate visions into reality.
Taking to his Twitter, he wrote; The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant. Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. Which is why I’mma press our aimless leaders! Ken Ofori atta is making noise! Glass Nkoaa
