Mr Isaac Kyeremanteng, Kumasi Metropolitan Co-ordinator of the National Youth Employment Programme (NYEP), has urged the youth to desist from engaging in multiple registration in the programme. He expressed regret that some people had adopted the habit of engaging themselves in such practices to secure employment opportunities.
Mr Kyeremanteng made this known in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Kumasi last Wednesday. He said the programme was currently being run under five modules, which included community policing, health care assistants, teaching assistants, waste and sanitation management and youth in agriculture. He said the positive response by the youth towards the programme was due to the educational programmes to sensitise them on the benefits to be derived.
Mr Kyeremanteng advised the public to have the fore knowledge about the programme and avoid the habit of trooping unnecessarily to the offices to get employment. He stated that the NYEP was for all Ghanaians and not politically motivated as was being circulated among some sections of the public.
