Former Youth Organizer for National Patriotic Party Sammi Awuku has said that conditions under the NPP government is better as compared to that of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during their time in government.
Speaking on TV3’s NewDay with Jonnie Hughes on Thursday morning February 3, he described the youth during the NDC era as disoriented, desolated and dispirited.
However, the NPP has given the youth hope through their projects like One District One Factory. This projects were not in existence during Former President Mahama’s era.
“What I saw in 2026 is different from what I see now in 2022. In 2016 the young people felt desolated, they felt disoriented , they felt dispirited and they felt disenchanted . Today what I see is, they see that some of their colleagues have gotten jobs , they are praying and pushing that it gets to their time.
“Even though Nana Addo and his administration haven’t provided jobs for every young Ghanaians, nobody can also tell me he doesn’t know one person who hasn’t been employed under this administration.
“So you can point to one person meaning that we have made progress however because of the backlog , if you had four hundred thousand people entering the job market every year calculate it form 2017 to even 2021 . The five years is giving 2 million young people. 2 million young people absorbing them wont be easy.
“If you go to elsewhere, the government even guaranteed a loan for young people, if you go to India it similar, when yuou want to go into entreoprebuership. What the Akufo-Addo administration has started with with the 1D1F, we will start seeing results of it after three or four years.
“Why because at that time you will have a whole value chain of these entities, factories that will also help curb the rural urban migration.”
