I'll take on NYEP saboteurs

By myjoyonline
The deputy co-ordinator of the national youth employment programme, Seibik Bugri has lambasted the opposition NDC for their numerous attempts to sabotage the youth employment programme.

He was responding to allegations that the programme was being run on partisan lines.

Mr Seibik Bugri stressed that the entire allegations were baseless and unfounded.

He described the allegations as attempts to throw dust into their eyes of the good people of Ghana.

He said that it was the Hon Alban Bagbin who started peddling these lies at a press conference he held in the Upper West Region early this year.

Mr Bugri explained that the National Youth Employment Programme was launched in October last year to empower the Ghanaian Youth with employment opportunities regardless of one's political, academic, social or religious status.

So far over a hundred thousand Ghanaian Youth between the ages of 18 and 35 have benefited from the programme and many more are in the process of giving employment in various sectors of the country's economy.

He emphatically stated that the allegations are calculated attempts by the NDC to mislead the public because they know the success of such an important programme would be a threat to the very existence of the NDC.

According to him, much as he is ready to receive any concerns with regards to the National Youth Employment Programme he is also ready to do battle by talking on saboteurs.
