Start your own business – Bawumia tells graduates
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President Of Ghana has encouraged Ghanaian University graduates to start their businesses.
“Not only are you expected to be working in the public sector; you are equally expected to be drivers of the private sector. Some of you should start planning to begin your businesses with knowledge gained from the training you have received, and possibly employ others.”
This was announced during a speech read on his behalf by a Deputy Minister of Education, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, at the 13th congregation of the University of Mines And Technology (UMaT) in Tarkwa over the weekend.
The role of the government is to create an enabling environment and establish micro-stability for business in the country.
“The future for graduates regarding employment is the most important issue for Youths at this stage, and we have gone through a period when most people look for a job from government or state institutions, but that payroll is full.
