Prez MillsPrez Mills reiterates govt commitment to create jobs as workers mark May Day

President John Evans Mills has said government will not renege on its commitment to expand the country’s economy by putting more Ghanaians to work through job creation.

Addressing workers at this year’s May Day celebration in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region, President Mills said a chunk of the 3 billion dollar Chinese loan his administration secured from the Chinese Exim Bank will be channeled into that sector.

According to the President “If you look at our manifesto, the creation of jobs is one of the four pillars supporting our Better Ghana Agenda. We also recognize that the private sector is the engine of growth. I will be quick to admit that we have some challenges but one should also acknowledge what other methods or contributions we have made.”

He emphasized that the government recognizes that “there is the need to continue to produce the kind of atmosphere which will enable the private sector to create jobs. We have targeted certain areas and indeed our procurement of the Chinese loan of 3 billion is really targeted at sectors which will help us to create jobs for our people.”

The President also used the occasion to declare his firm commitment to ensuring free and fair elections in December stressing the law will deal ruthlessly with all trouble makers.

“I want to assure you of my determination and with the help of the almighty God, to ensure that our elections are free, fair and transparent. The law will be no respecter of status, it will deal with everybody alike and we will make sure that those who decide to break the law are indeed made to face the full rigors of the law,” President Mills assured.

General Secretary of the Trade Union Congress Kofi Asamoah, who lamented the poor protection for workers in the informal sector, in his address said the rising unemployment in the country is worrying.

He noted that “the unprecedented growth rate like the previous period of economic growth since the structural adjustment has failed to create decent jobs for Ghanaians. Joblessness is on the rise, nearly all new jobs are being created in the informal economy where incomes are low and workers have very little protection from the labour’s laws.”

Kofi Asamoah lamented that tertiary graduates are unable to find decent jobs pointing out that, “high economic growth has failed to create jobs… because our growth policies have been based on the exploitation on natural resources which does not create jobs.
