Unemployment Crisis Becoming A National Security Threat – Alan

Source The Ghana Report

A former presidential aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alan Kyerematen, has indicated that the country’s pervasive employment crisis is gradually becoming a national security threat.

Mr. Kyerematen said the three-day ‘Occupy Julorbi House’ protest organised by the Democracy Hub in Accra is the evidence of his claims.

He said this when he announced his resignation from the NPP and outlined his plans to contest in the 2024 general elections as an Independent Candidate.

“Every year, over 300,000  graduates from tertiary institutions in Ghana, excluding those from secondary institutions, enter the job market with little or no hope of finding a job. Public sector employment is not an option, with an already over-bloated public service. This phenomenon of pervasive employment crisis is gradually becoming a national security threat, as evidenced by the recent ‘Occupy Julorbi House’ demonstrations.”

“The initial reaction of the police in manhandling some protestors is not the solution to the problem. What Ghana needs now is CHANGE, which will provide long-lasting solutions to the challenges confronting our country,” he stated.

Meanwhile, Mr Kyerematen’s decision to resign from the NPP has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, as he has been a steadfast member of the NPP for many years.

Mr Kyerematen noted that “it is abundantly clear to me that my services and contributions to the party (NPP) are not appreciated, and that my continuous stay in the party will create further tension and division, which is an exact replay of circumstances that led to my decision to resign from the party in 2008”.

He indicated that “The new movement will be led and powered by the youth of Ghana. Out of the over 17 million registered voters in the 2020 general election, the youth aged 18-35 years constituted over 9.4 million voters, representing 55% of the total voters.”

“I believe, with unwavering conviction, that I am the only leader who, with unmatched integrity, can guarantee the economic and industrial transformation of Ghana, the restoration of confidence in political leadership, and the unification of an increasingly divided nation.

“My unique selling proposition as a leader is vision, competence, integrity and action.”
