Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has reiterated the government has created over 2 million jobs in the last 7 years despite our economic challenges.
According to the Vice President who was recently elected the presidential candidate of the NPP said statistics available indicate that the number remains the highest since the country’s independence.
He stated this while speaking at the start of a cash disbursement for beneficiaries of the YOUSTART programme in Accra.
He maintained that the outbreak of the Covid-19, the Russian-Ukraine war had negative implications for our economy.
However, the government created the highest number of jobs in Ghana’s history.
“What is remarkable is that, notwithstanding the global economic challenges, major global economic disruptions that have taken place with regard to COVID-19 that many of you have talked about and its implications on businesses as well as the Russia-Ukraine war, notwithstanding these global challenges, our government over the last seven years has created 2.1 million jobs. This is the highest number of jobs created by any government since the Fourth Republic,” he added.
