Your main responsibility as govt is to create jobs – Kofi Amoah jabs Ofori-Atta

Businessman Dr. Kofi Amoah says it’s the duty of government to create employment opportunities for the youth in the country.

It could be remembered that Finance Minister Ken Ofori Attah while addressing graduating students of the University for Professional Studies (UPSA) encouraged them to go into entrepreneurship.

According to him, government is providing the needed enabling environment and therefore it’s imperative that the youth take up entrepreneurship because the government payroll is currently full.

He said government spends 60% of its revenue generated on paying salaries; something he says is not sustainable.

But reacting to this Dr. Kofi Amoah indicated that it’s government’s sole responsibility to create employment in the country.

To him, government is failing at this because of the inefficient use of resources.

“Abandoned projects such as the Komenda sugar factory among others can be means of reducing unemployment in the country. In the long run it can boost Ghana’s economy and possibly make her a leading producer of sugar.”

To him, government should take advantage of the presence of the AFCTA headquartered in Ghana in order to ensure that success is achieved and the economy is elevated to accept more citizens onto government’s payroll.
