One of the candidates, Bright Akwetey told show host Nii Arday Clegg unemployment will be the biggest issue he will tackle should he become President of the republic.

“My dream to create a very strong and progressive society where no Ghanaian will have any anxiety about the basic necessities of life; about work, food, shelter, clothing, accommodation, education, about health services -that is the Ghanaian dream. It must be pursued”, Mr. Akwetey said.
