Youth Unemployment: Scene at YEA Job Fair an eyesore; if you can’t create jobs get out and let someone else come – Korankye Ankrah fumes

Must Read

The Founder and General Overseer of the Royal House Chapel International, Apostle General Sam Korankye Ankrah has admonished politicians in the country to sit up and solve the myriad of problems facing the country including youth unemployment.

His comment follows a stampede that arose when thousands of job applicants mostly made up of the youth stormed the Youth Employment Agency’s (YEA) Job Fair in search of jobs at the Accra International Conference Centre.

Chaotic scenes greeted the job fair because of the large crowd culminating in a hall’s glass door breaking and injuring some of the job applicants.

Preaching about this development during a Church Service on Sunday, September 12, 2021, Reverend Korankye Ankrah described videos from the scene as an eyesore and depressing to watch.

“I rebuke the spirit of shoddy work in this nation, the spirit of no care, the spirit of greed,” he prayed adding “what I saw was an eyesore, stampede, depressing. The Police have space for 5,000 people to be employed and there were 90,000 field applications for 5,000 jobs, it means that 8,500 will be turned away.”

Turning his guns on the political leadership, he charged them to fix the problems in the country or walk out if they’re unable to proffer solutions.

“As a prophet, I’m speaking to this nation and I’m speaking to the politicians that they better sit up and work because that’s the reason why we voted them.”

“If you can’t create jobs, get out of that place and let somebody else come, what nonsense is that?”

“And what annoys me is that they will not accept any criticism and correction, anything you say, they’ll have a defense, they are not humble. I don’t know if now, I myself, I should form a political party and go and [govern]” he told the congregation.
