#QuizNana: Ghanaians will judge me on Job-creation – Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo says the success of his leadership at the end of his tenure will be hinged on Job creation.

Mr. Akufo-Addo in the run up to the 2016 general elections promised the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs for the teeming masses of unemployed Ghanaian youth.

Speaking to a cross section of the media at his maiden engagement with Journalists Tuesday, the President said “I’m well aware that the success or otherwise of my administration will be judged largely on Job creation.”

He thus cited lack of jobs for the youth as the single biggest challenge facing the country,  and indicated his readiness to create avenue for massive boost in Jobs for the teeming youth.

One of such big plans, according the President  is the National Entrepreneurship and Innovations Plan (NEIP), his government’s flagship initiative, which will be the primary vehicle for providing an integrated, national support for start-ups and small businesses.

The overall objective of this Plan, the President added, is to stimulate private sector growth at the early-stages of businesses, to accelerate job creation and to provide entrepreneurial Ghanaian youth with a critical alternative to salaried employment.
