According to Mr. Afful Manu Benjamin, the Proprietor of Stars of Hope Montessori academy and a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Tain Constituency, Ghana at all levels is finding wages and profits to boost its economy.
To do this, he said, there is a need for a skilled workforce and evaluation.
Skills development, he said, should attract heightened interest in current Ghana’s wobbling economy.
“Development should not seek only rapid but should also include policies that will grow and increase interest in skills to meet developmental challenges”, he stated.
He added that to enter the labour market, the raw materials in the country are enough for production to resource development.
In an interview with Appiah Kubi on Tain FM Anɔpa Nkɔmmɔ, the Proprietor hinted that adequate education on technical and vocational skills, human
labour policies can improve focuses on efforts to bring the country’s economic growth to stabilize.
This realization, according to the NPP guru, the challenges that are punching the interest of the country’s economic growth are concerned about and needs to be committed
skilled policies to drive the change, hence embracing the TVET initiative.
Mr. Afful narrated challenges that are retarding the economical development in the country, saying, cheap partisan politics on the developmental issue, Skills mismatch, Limited involvement of social partners, Poor quality and relevance of training, Limited access to training opportunities, Weak coordination in the system, Lack of coherence to the system, Inappropriate coordinated and planned actions and reforms, No clarify institutional arrangements, Inadequate anchor of existing good practice, No pledge of political and collective will and commitment.
He submitted that the Educational System, the inabilities to produce the raw materials into the finished product, refusing to pay taxes by the people, are all fundamental issues that need to be tackled to help resolve the economic challenges in the country but not the move to change the government in power, saying, if the fundamental issues are not resolved, no matter the change of government, the challenges will not resolve, therefore the opposition party should bring in ideas to curb the economic challenges rather than being propagated.
He concludes that the opposition party (NDC) and the government should be able to think about the country first, before their partisan interest.
He says the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has no solution to the challenges facing the Ghanaian economy.
