Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Marfo, has disclosed that government will employ all graduates from public universities who read Agriculture, but are unemployed.
Speaking at a breakfast meeting on the theme: ‘A public – private dialogue on stability, growth and jobs’, Mr. Marfo said the move is part of efforts by government to create employment in the agriculture sector.
“As part of enhancing agriculture production in the country, we have decided in consultation with the universities, all those who have done degrees in Agriculture and are unemployed. We will be calling all of them for a short term training in extension services so that with their degree background, they will be in a position to give extension services across the country”.
Mr. Marfo promised during his vetting that the Akufo-Addo government will create the the enabling environment for the private sector to grow.
