The Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), has promised to give all unemployed graduates in the country, a monthly allowance of GHC300 if given the nod to govern the country.

The party, which is upbeat about his its chances in the 2020 elections, said the social intervention policy dubbed “Unemployment Benefits Scheme” will require beneficiaries to complete their mandatory one-year national service before they stand a chance to benefit from the policy.

Speaking in an interview, the National Chairman of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), John Amekah said the initiative is aimed at minimising the burden and stress unemployed graduates go through on daily basis, and also to drastically reduce crime rate.

According to him, Ghana is sitting on a time bomb because successive governments have failed to tackle youth unemployment.

“The LPG with Kofi Akpaloo as the leader of the party, we are determined to supervise the implementation of policies that will help develop the country through payment of unemployed graduates to reduce the burden and stress young people go through after completing their tertiary education,” he noted.

Promising to fulfill its promise if elected into office, Mr. Amekah reiterated the party’s commitment to addressing youth unemployment once and for all through pragmatic policies and programmes.

He also urged government to implement capacity-building programmes on entrepreneurial skills and initiative moves to help the youth.

LPG failed to garner more than 1% of the votes in the 2016 elections but hopes to do better in the 2020 elections.
