Beatrice Annan, Leading Member of the Communications Team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says there is no hope for the young people under the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

She said the government’s consistency lying about job creation in the country is a clear indication that the Ghanaian youth doesn’t have a better future under the NPP.

“The claim by Bawumia that this government has created 2.1 million jobs is a figment of Bawumia’s own imagination. That claim cements Bawumia’s reputation as a chronic pathological liar who has no shame.” She wrote on her X.

“Again, how come the unemployment situation in Ghana keeps getting worse by the day? In spite of all their so-called flagship initiatives like NABCO, YouthStart etc, unemployment which stood at 8.4% in 2016, is today a staggering 14%.” She said.

Below is her full statement

 

There is no hope for the young people under the current government.

Bawumia is still repeating the lies about jobs.

THE 2.1 MILLION JOBS LIE

• The claim by Bawumia that this government has created 2.1 million jobs is a figment of Bawumia’s own imagination. That claim cements Bawumia’s reputation as a chronic pathological liar who has no shame.

• February 2021 – Employment Minister, Ignatius Baffour Awuah claimed NPP had created 3 million jobs.

• 16th September 2020 – Same Employment Minister, Ignatius Baffour Awuah claimed they had created 5.3 million jobs.

• 27th April, 2023 – Bawumia claimed that they have created 2.2 million jobs

• Now 7th February, 2024 – Bawumia claims they have created 2.1 million jobs

• The question, which of these figures must we believe?

HOW COME THE 5.3 MILLION JOBS CEATED IN 2020 DROPPED TO 2.1 MILLION IN 2024?

The job numbers keep changing and falling at every turn, depending on who is speaking. It is obvious that these figures are mere conjectures and not borne out by the facts.

• Again, how come the unemployment situation in Ghana keeps getting worse by the day? In spite of all their so-called flagship initiatives like NABCO, YouthStart etc, unemployment which stood at 8.4% in 2016, is today a staggering 14%.

• Again, how come the unemployment situation in Ghana keeps getting worse by the day? In spite of all their so-called flagship initiatives like NABCO, YouthStart etc, unemployment which stood at 8.4% in 2016, is today a staggering 14%.

Bawumia is a danger to the future if he cannot acknowledge the present.
