Former Northern Regional Youth Organizer for the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) who recently defected to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Issahaku Yakubu Abdul Dahim has responded to finance minister, Ken Ofori Attah over his statement that the payroll is full.
Mr. Dahim believed the minister could have used better words to advise the Ghanaian University graduates without asking them to create their own business because there is no space to recruit more.
“If the finance minister claims that the payroll is full, then they should better create another one for Ghanaians…”, he angrily told Tudu Yeligbahira.
“We voted for them to give us solutions, not explain problems for us. If it was about informing Ghanaians about lack of space, we could all do it”, he added.
The minister’s comment has attracted mixed reactions across the country, with some saying it is an indication of Akufo-Addo led government’s failure.
An Entrepreneurship Lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Mr. Ralph Nyadu-Addo advised students and graduates of the various universities in Ghana on how to succeed as entrepreneurs.
Speaking in an interview on Joy FM‘s Midday News on Tuesday, he said though entrepreneurs face challenges with regard to securing capital, the graduates could start with intraprenuership.
“Well it’s a bit of a challenge looking at the fact that it is difficult for entrepreneurs themselves to raise capital and the amount of interest they have to pay. But they can always team up and start a bit early.
