“There are jobs in Ghana but graduates don’t have the skills” – Ken Ofori Atta states

Ken Ofori Atta’s inconsistency with his words about jobs in the country is fast becoming a nuisance.

Recently, this same Ken-Ofori Atta told graduate unemployed youths that the government’s payroll is full hence they should venture into entrepreneurship.

After coming under severe backlashes, Ken Ofori Atta has now made a sharp U-Turn and this time around he claims that there are a lot of jobs in the country but the youths lack the skills to fill such vacancies.

Speaking during a youth conference in Accra, Ken Ofori Atta claimed that certain Ghanaian firms are unable to employ graduates from various universities because they lack the necessary skills especially IT.

He went on to advise that in the face of increased young unemployment, Ghanaian colleges must match their training with business needs.

In his own words;

“We have about 9 million people in a global economy that is driven by digitization, even though the jobs are in that direction we have less than a thousand graduates with IT-related skills every year from our tertiary universities. What has put the universities to sleep without realizing this major shift in where the world is going?”
