President Akufo-Addo since assuming the reigns of power on January 7, 2017 has created 350,000 jobs and counting, Deputy Minister of Information, Pius Enam Hadzide has claimed.

Speaking in an interview transcribed by MyNewsGh.com, Mr. Hadzide said Akufo-Addo has done a yeoman’s job so far in the area of job creation.

Highlighting the various interventions of the Akufo-Addo government including the recent 307 ambulances, he added that, “Akufo-Addo has so far created over 350,000 jobs across this country” chiding the opposition NDC for having no alternatives.

He accused the NDC of seeking to undermine government’s efforts, adding that, “Mahama imported 207 buses and labelled them ambulances”.

Pius Hadzide’s job figures run parallel to other job numbers government officials throw around.

1,096,404 jobs

In 2018, the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration claimed it created 1,096,404 jobs under the Ministry of Employment.

Mr Ignatius Baffour Awuah, the sector Minister at the launch of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) in Kumasi revealed that the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration has been able to create 1,096,404 jobs and later supplied some data to support his claims which the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) dismissed as fabrication.

“Where are the jobs? In which areas are these jobs? He must come clear. We will demand of him to come and tell us in Parliament where those jobs are. If you say within 15 months, nearly two million jobs have been created and you don’t tell us which sectors of the economy, then it leaves a lot to be desired,” the Member of Parliament for Keta, Richard Quashigah remarked.

“You cannot throw out figures without justifying them. The Employment Minister must tell us, in clear terms, which areas these jobs have been created, which are the numbers for the public and which are the numbers for the private, which areas of the private sector is he making reference to because as far as I know, the One District-One Factory has not taken off…” Quashigah added.
