“Never rely on the government for survival. As a human being never rely on the government for survival. Don’t sit home and wait for a manna to come from heaven.” These are the words of Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong.

According to him, people waiting for government work end up being unemployed.

Speaking as the guest speaker at the Valley View University (VVU) graduation, the outspoken MP indicated that if a graduate sits at home and waits for government work in this time of the world, the person can not be successful in the future.

Adding that graduates who are relying on government work in Ghana will stay for five or six years before they can be employed.

“Never rely on the government for survival. As a human being never rely on the government for survival. Don’t sit home and wait for a manna to come from heaven. If you are an IT graduate and you are waiting for an IT job, in this part of the world, especially Ghana, you might stay at home for five, six years.” Ken Agyapong added.

He encouraged the graduates to put into practice the skills they have acquired in school to create employment for themselves.

He understands that graduates creating employment for themselves will not only become successful in the future but will also reduce the high rate of unemployment in the country.

“You are graduate but if you leave Ghana to different country, you work as security but you don’t want to work as a security in your own country and that is the problem of Africans”

“I have seen some students making it with third class. I want to assure you that whether you are third class, second class upper or even lower, in the school of life, your first class is just two letters which I call H and H; that is honesty and hard work. These two will determine your success in the future. It is not the degree you acquire today that will work towards the future. If you don’t work towards the future, your certificate will be in your room forever,” he stated.
