The rise in the cost of living coupled with inflation has undoubtedly raised lots of concerns amongst Ghanaians as individual citizens keep complaining about economic hardship across the various regions in the country.
Speaking in a recent interview on JoyNews, a youth activist who had been a graduate for some time took the privilege to expose the Akufo Addo government over National Service Allowances during the tenure of the former President, John Mahama, and that in 2022.
According to the youth Activist, Peter Keelson- Aikins, the National service allowance in 2016 was $150 but today, it is $74. ” We would admit fairly that, the state of unemployment is really a serious issue in this country.
As of now, youth have had to face the stark reality of how difficult it is to come up with a job. I spoke about entrepreneurship initially; you might have the most brilliant or outstanding ideal but then, you need a certain push snd system that is able to support a business’ s growth. Unfortunately, we don’ t have the climate as of now.
Whenever there is inflation, the value of money erodes and so even starting as a graduate with an entrepreneurial idea is quite difficult to live with. National service allowance in 2016 was $150 but today, it is $74″ , the Youth Activist, Peter Keelson- Aikins emphatically revealed.
