Tamale, Aug. 5, GNA – Mr Akilu Shaibu, a
Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Export Promotion Authority (GEPA),
has advised Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) to play
effective roles in ensuring that enough jobs are created for the youth.

He said a lot of jobs could be created at the
district level if the MMDAs were more innovative and committed to support the
GEPA’s One-District-One-Export-Product project, which was aimed mainly to
improve the country’s economy.

Mr Shaibu told the GNA in interview in Tamale
that:   “Unimaginable jobs would be created while the country would
earn a lot of money to boost the economy if all MMDAs play their roles
effectively to support the initiative.”

He said District Assemblies especially the
District Chief Executives (DCEs) would be doing a disservice to the State if
they failed to work with commitment to ensure that lives in their areas were
improved.

“Every Assembly especially DCEs need to work
and justify their appointments,” he added.

Mr Shaibu advised the youth not to shy away
from farming since there was money in the venture more than excavating for gold
and diamond.

He gave the assurance that GEPA was ready to
support groups and individuals who would cultivate exportable goods.

He appealed to the media to remain the chief
partner in development and so they must strive to use their various platforms
to educate the youth about the importance of farming.
