Akufo-Addo has created over 350,000 jobs – Pius Hadzide

Published

on

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.

Published

on

Just a day after Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia launched a universal quick response code (QR Code) payment system citing it as the first of its kind in Africa, NDC national communications officer, Sammy Gyamfi has debunked it with evidence stating it’s not the first time Ghana is experiencing such thing.

Vice President Bawumia speaking at the launch said, “Today is a historic day because we are solving a major problem here in Ghana. It is also historic because Ghana will be the first country in Africa to launch a Quick Response (QR) code payment system.”

“Not only are we the first country in Africa, but we are also, as far as I am aware, the third country in the world to launch a Quick Response Code after Singapore and India.”

NDC Communications Officer Sammy Gyamfi on Good Evening Ghana on Accra-based Metro TV responding to the Vice President’s statement said, “This QR Code payment system that we are talking about was introduced by Ecobank and implemented in 2016/2017 so it not a new thing.”

It is reported on BusinessGhana in 2017 that “Ecobank Ghana launched a Masterpass QR, a smart merchant solution that accepts payments for goods and services from the mobile phone, providing micro, small and medium enterprises the opportunity to move from cash to digital payments.”
