Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has called on heads of state institutions to repose the confidence President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has placed in them by adding value to their respective institutions.
In his view, doing this will ensure expansion, to create more opportunities for the youth.
“The most serious threat to the nation’s security is unemployment. The Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government has made significant progress in resolving this issue.
“But there’s a lot more that must be done. The challenge is real and your role in tackling the unemployment quandary cannot be overemphasized,” he said while speaking at the closing ceremony of a retreat for board chairpersons, heads and deputy heads of government institutions at Nkwatia-Kwahu on Sunday November 21.
He added “As heads of institution, if you can expand your scope of operation for maximum returns and profitability, to be able to recruit the youth to tackle this heinous joblessness among the nation’s youth, we will have made significant progress in providing jobs for our youth.”
“You have been specially selected and appointed by the President who has a lot of confidence in your ability to turn around the fortunes of your institutions. I know you will meet this expectation and make the country proud.”
“Let us show the Ghanaian people how grateful we are for the opportunity to serve our country. Let us add value to the public sector.”
