The Minister of Information, Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has questioned Mahama on the total number of Ghanaian youths employed during his presidency.
In an interview on Accra based on Okay FM, the Information Minister asked the former president to state the number of jobs he created for the unemployed youth in this country when he was president.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah quizzed;
“If former President Mahama is asking the government to provide jobs, then he should equally tell us what he was able to do within his years as president in terms of jobs and solving the unemployment problem he spoke about.
“Apart from essential service providers, there was a ban on employment in the country as part of IMF’s conditions given to the country when Ghana was placed under an IMF program.
“You don’t talk without providing evidence. For us, we talk and back whatever we do with evidence and the needed data. If you can remember, it was during Mahama’s era that we were told that we had eaten all the meat and it was left with the bones so we had to take the country to the IMF”.
